9. Byron Jones
The Miami Dolphins cornerback will have a very lucrative year. They signed the star defensive back to a five-year, $82.5 million pact with $54.4 million guaranteed. Furthermore, he will earn a cool $26 million this year alone. That puts him as one of 2020’s highest earners.
Jones is a highly effective cornerback who is also a capable safety. It’s even possible that he could play in the latter position this year. In 2019 quarterbacks only threw at Jones 62 times, or 3.8 times per game. Meanwhile, they just completed 29, resulting in a feeble three touchdowns.
