    Because NFL contracts are not gauranteed one must look at the actual money paid a player including bonus money per year they actually get paid. Right now the top 5 paid guys over the past year as as follows:

    1. Ben Roethlisberger

    2. Jared Allen

    3. Larry Fitzgerald

    4. JaMarcus Russell

    5. Micheal Turner

    Others have bigger "money" deals but these generally speaking are real dollars, Haynesworth will not see a big chunk of that deal because the contract is not front loaded and they will cut him before they pay the last couple years of the deal where bonuses and actual dollars would cost them 25 million or so each year. That is the reality of NFL contracts and the biggest reason why they are not ever gauranteed.

    Albert Haynesworth this year. But last year it was Ben Roethelisberger, funny thing too, they pay a lot of cash for a sucky QB. Its like trading gold for sh*t, thats having Ben on your team :D

    But anyway Al has a $100m contract which is huge. Best paid for sure.
