The Green Bay Packers superstar comes in at number five on the list. After another season where Rodgers took home the NVL MVP, he also won on the pitch.

The 38-year-old has made $42 million from his salary and just $11 million from his endorsements, but that’s still a substantial amount the midfielder is getting.

#4 – Deshaun Watson – $56 million

Without even playing once, Deshaun Watson is fourth on the list. This is thanks to the huge $230 million 4-year deal he signed with the Browns.

It remains to be seen how much the former Texas defender plays in 2022, but one thing is for sure he won’t be short of a dime with his massive signing. Fifty-five million dollars of his income is through his own contract.

SK’s top five earning NFL players continue.

#3 – Tom Brady – $58.4 million

The seven-time Super Bowl champion came in third. Known for being willing to take less money to be able to meet the needs of other teams, Brady only has $18.4 million in his salary.

But with all his validation, this is where he makes it. 40 million dollars to be exact, because he is one of the most famous athletes on the planet.

#2 – Josh Allen – $66.5 million

According to many, the Buffalo Bills’ quarterback is the best in the league right now. The Bills are arguably the Super Bowl favorite simply because of the number 17.

The 25-year-old will have a sensational 2022 season and be well paid too. Sixty-two point four million dollars is Allen’s salary with only $4 million confirmed.

#1 – Matthew Stafford – $73.3 million
