Here’s a list from Sports Illustrated showing the ten highest paid NFL stars.  I would be so happy if I was paid what the lowest guy in the NFL makes.  The water boy probably makes more than me.  Anyway, here you go….

1.  Aaron Rodgers –  $22 Million (for the next 5 years – $110 million dollar contract extension signed in April 2013.)
