2020 NFL All-Money Team: Highest Paid Players in the NFL, including several LA Rams players.
In light of LA Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey signing a record-breaking contract for his position group, the Rams now have two of the highest-paid players in the league at their respective position groups. Unfortunately, so do their NFC West Rivals. But, just for fun, what if they played on the same team. What would the rest of that team look like?
Football is back! The Houston Texans kick off the season in Kansas City against the Super Bowl Champions, the Kansas City Chiefs. This is the first year that I have been genuinely curious as to what an NFL All-Money team would look like. Despite being in a national pandemic, the novel coronavirus hasn’t been a reason for NFL teams to get discounts from players across the league, who’s salaries continue to dramatically expand. Let’s start out with the general numbers.
HCP – Highly Compensated Players
The Los Angeles Rams have three of the highest-paid players at their respective positions in the league: Aaron Donald is the highest-paid defensive tackle in the league. Now, cornerback Jalen Ramsey is the highest-paid cornerback as well, the first cornerback in NFL history to break the $20M per year average. And even punter Johnny Hekker is among the ranks of the highly compensated.
This offense would cost $220.5M to put on the field, or 111% of an NFL salary cap. Over a 16 game season, the cost per game would be $13,781,250. That’s a lot of money.
The defense would cost $222.85M to put on the field, surprisingly slightly more expensive than the offense. That’s a cost of $13,928,125 per game.
We’d like to thank the researchers from Over The Cap.com for their tireless and meticulous work to continuously update this information. So now let’s dive into these players now, shall we?
