NFL's biggest contracts for 2019

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is the latest to sign a big dollar contract extension for three years at $66 million, giving him $22 million per year, making him the highest-paid receiver. This comes on the heels of Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff who reached a four-year, $134 million contract extension. With $110 million guaranteed, Goff now holds the NFL record in most guaranteed money. Take a look at the highest paid NFL players for the 2019 season, as ranked by the average annual value of their contracts according to Over the Cap. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger signed multi-year extensions to top the highest-paid player list, surpassing Aaron Rodgers' deal with the Green Bay Packers. See who else gets the bread.
