Highest-paid NFL players: Tracking most money guaranteed, per year at every position

Who are the NFL's highest-paid players at every position?

Many stars have scored big paydays in 2022 and reset the market,

but there are a few whose deals from previous years have carried over as the peak for their positions.

New Denver Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson signed on Sept. 1 a massive extension with the team, getting $165 million in guaranteed money.

In July, Kyler Murray inked a five-year, $230.5 million extension with the Arizona Cardinals, putting him on the list of highest-paid quarterbacks.

Los Angeles Chargers safety Derwin James Jr. ended a brief training camp "hold in" and signed a four-year extension worth $76.4 million, making him the highest-paid safety in the NFL.

Baltimore Ravens' kicker Justin Tucker received a four-year extension -- with 17.5 million guaranteed --

while Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald obliterated the market, getting $31.6 million over the next three years.

The Rams also gave Cooper Kupp a contract extension, which included $75 million guaranteed,

edging out the guarantees on the deal Tyreek Hill got when he was traded to the Miami Dolphins in May ($72.2 million).
