A strange phenomenon in the American football tournament is that the highest paid players have no merit and the champions are paid.
Football, especially the American NFL, for a long time was dominated by the New England Patriots club. The club has won five Super Bowl championships, all since Tom Brady joined in 2000. But despite being a legend, Brady has a pretty good salary. Garoppolo was a substitute for Brady but now earns a higher salary than Brady, although he has no merit.
The position of the quarterback (the equivalent of soccer midfielder) that Tom Brady competes in is the most important position in football because they pass the ball and direct the attack. As a result, quarterback players top the list of top NFL players, but Tom Brady is not even in the top 10.
The runner-up, Jimmy Garoppolo, will earn $ 28 million in 2018 and is the second highest paid player in NFL history. According to the wiki, with a 5-year contract from 2018 to 2022, the total amount of Garoppolo earned will be $ 137.5 million if you don’t have any problems.
Garoppolo has been a substitute for Tom Brady for more than 3 seasons, and strangely despite the $ 7 million Brady higher salary, the Garoppolo has a total of 5 career matches, and the club is currently in San Francisco won a playoff match (live knockout match) when there was a Garoppolo.
Besides Garoppolo, the remaining players in the top 4 in NFL payouts all have in common is that they have never won a playoff match. Kirk Cousins of Minnesota Vikings ($ 28 million), Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford ($ 27 million), Derek Carr of Oakland Raiders ($ 25 million) have never led their club to a long-running match. over 3 hours and had to encounter muscular opponents.
