It was fictional wide receiver Rod Tidwell of the Arizona Cardinals who said to his fictional agent Jerry Maguire, “show me the money.”
Well, we are about to.
For your counting pleasure, here’s a look at each of the NFL's 32 teams’ biggest player contract in franchise history. When we say big, we mean big, as in total dollars of the contract.
As for the figures in this piece, we are exclusively using the outstanding work of Spotrac.com (subscription required) in order to be as consistent and accurate as possible. There will also be the occasional mention of other big contracts signed by other players of the same franchise.
Obviously, many of these deals have been inked in recent years and, in this offseason alone, we have seen our share of quarterbacks ink huge contracts. And as we know, there could be more to come.
Count on it.
