25 Highest Paid NFL Players In History

25. Dwight Freeney – $96.1 million


Freeney’s biggest deal came in 2007 when he signed a six-year, $72 million deal with the Indianapolis Colts. Amazingly enough, Freeney has managed to stick around ever since, recording eight sacks for the Cardinals last year. With 119.5 career sacks, Freeney has earned his spot on this list and the career-high $30.8 million he made back in 2007.
