2. Patrick Mahomes

The Kansas City Chiefs QB is a generational talent. In short, that’s why the Chiefs rewarded him with the biggest contract in the history of the NFL. In sum, Mahomes signed a 10-year deal worth up to $503 million, with $477 million in guarantees. Meanwhile, Mahomes also has an exit option.

However, if you look at the figures, Mahomes will not be the highest-earner in 2020, at least not where guaranteed take-home pay is concerned. While he will definitely make about $48 million without bonuses, it’s not enough for him to top this list.

1. Russell Wilson

Wilson remains the highest-paid player in the NFL on an annual basis. Mahomes obviously has a much bigger overall contract, but Wilson will take home more money in the short-term. His contract guarantees him a massive $53 million this year.

The Seattle Seahawks QB signed a four-year extension in 2019 worth $140 million with $107 million guaranteed. This will make him one of the most motivated players in the league as he hopes to lead Seattle to another Super Bowl. What a staggering amount of money that is.
