So, it's no surprise that Flacco tops a "USA Today" list of 'The NFL's 15 Most Overpaid Players.'
Here's the Top 10 . . .
1. Joe Flacco, Baltimore Ravens. He earns $24.6 million, which is #1 among quarterbacks. He's in the middle of an extended nine-year, $187 million deal that he originally signed after winning the Super Bowl in 2013.
2. Clay Matthews, Green Bay Packers. He gets $15.1 million, which is third among outside linebackers, even though he isn't as good as he used to be.
3. Tavon Austin, Los Angeles Rams. He makes $15 million, which is third among wide receivers.
4. Brock Osweiler, Cleveland Browns. He earns $16 million . . . making him the 17th highest paid quarterback. Which doesn't sound too bad, until you consider that it's $2 million MORE than Brady gets, and Osweiler is unproven and, well, terrible. Brady's record in games he's started is 208-61, Osweiler's is 14-9.
5. Mike Glennon, Chicago Bears. He makes $14 million, which is 20th at quarterback, and TIED with Brady. Glennon's career record is 5-13. (Face-palm.)
6. Jason Witten, Dallas Cowboys. He is earning $12.6 million, which makes him the highest paid tight-end. And he's 35.
7. Haloti Ngata, Detroit Lions. He makes $7.7 million, which makes him the 16th highest paid defensive tackle.
8. Kirk Cousins, Washington Redskins. He makes $23.9 million, which makes him the second-highest paid quarterback behind Flacco.
9. Coby Fleener, New Orleans Saints. He makes $7.5 million, which is sixth among tight-ends.
10. Dez Bryant, Dallas Cowboys. He makes $17 million, which makes him the highest paid receiver.
