    Re: Who makes the most in NFL? Signing bonuses tell the story

    In answer to the questions of why guys like Peyton aren't on there and guys like McKinnie are, the reason is because Peyton did his deal more than a year ago.
    He got his up front signing bonus before 2006, so his 2006 payday is significantly less.
    The guys on the list are people that signed new contracts/extensions in 2006.

    In fact, Manning got about $34 million as a signing bonus, but only had a $0.5 million salary the first year of that contract.
    For 2005, 2006, and 2007, his salary is not more than $1 million/year, but he has bonuses for 2006 and 2007 of $9 and $10 million, respectively.
    So for 2006, he hauled in about $10 million from football.
    Not too bad, but not enough to put him on the list when good players get $15+ million signing bonuses.
    Of course, he has plenty of endorsement money coming in too.

    As to Marrdro and Singersp's questions/comments on Tom Brady, he converted a roster bonus (that would have counted entirely against the current years cap) to a signing bonus (that gets amortized over five years for determining the cap) so that the the Patriots had more cap space.
    This means he gets paid the same amount, just a little bit earlier, and it's more cap friendly.
    So probably a good move for the team in order to get Moss, but not exactly generous.
    When the age of the Vikings came to a close, they must have sensed it. Probably, they gathered together one evening, slapped each other on the back and said, "Hey, good job." - Jack Handey [Deep Thoughts]

    Jees the Vikes had three QBs earn more than $1 million and it brought us a combined 13 TD passes ... there is money well spent.

    No they didn't. They only threw 11 TD's.

    Longwell & Memo threw the other 2 TD's

    The players that take a beating every down and making the game play decisions should be the ones raking in the cash.
    If you think offensive lineman don't take a beating every down, you've obviously never played line at any level of football.
    They are the only players to get hit every play.

    You obviously got hit on ur head as a kid. Or u were a reciever. The offensive line takes a beating every play. Every down. Offensive lines make runningbacks good and quarterbacks good. They know that thats why LaDainian Tomlinson does good and he knows it. Thats why he told his offensie line that when he broke that record that everyone of his lineman needed to meet him in the endzone. That is why Timmy Smith was a one shot wonder. He did amazing in the super bowl with the hogs making him good. Runningbacks like Marshall Faulk will love there lineman because they know what makes them able to make plays. Quarterbacks know hwo protects them from getting hit and becoming a no body. They know with enough time they can make a play and guys like David Carr cannot. Wide outs however feel the only one they should be paying respects is to the qb and sometimes not even that. Thats wuts up with all the trash talkin, end zone dancers. They make me sick.

    My position's Left Guard by the way so a little bias
