It was a rough year for the highest-paid quarterbacks in the NFL, in terms of team success.
None of the top six paid quarterbacks in the league will make the playoffs, which will start on Saturday.
Included on the list include Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers ($33.5 million per year), Atlanta’s Matt Ryan ($30 million), Washington’s Kirk Cousins ($28 million), San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo ($27.5 million), Detroit’s Matt Stafford ($27 million) and Oakland’s Derek Carr ($25 million).
Which proves that a big paycheck doesn’t necessarily buy team success, especially in the parity-infused NFL.
None of the 6 highest paid QBs in the league made the playoffs in 2018. They combined for 31 wins.
Aaron Rodgers: $33.5M
Matt Ryan: $30M
Kirk Cousins: $28M
Jimmy Garoppolo: $27.5M
Matthew Stafford: $27M
Derek Carr: $25M
