5. NICK FOLES, JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS – $30.8 MILLION:
Foles was probably always going to get paid – one way or another – when he led the Eagles to a miraculous Super Bowl in the 2017 season when starting QB Carson Wentz tore his ACL. He took over once again at the end of the 2018 season, leading the Eagles to a playoff victory.
Foles bet on himself and hit free agency. Jacksonville was the only player and came calling, signing Foles to a four-year, $88 million contract that will pay him the ransom of $30.8 million this year.
