The NFL is very close to reaching the end of its season. Rams and Bengals will play next Sunday, February 13 the last game of the 2021 league season, when both meet in Super Bowl LVI in search of the Vince Lombardi trophy.
Reviewing the 2021 season, we decided to remember in AS USA the salaries of the highest paid quarterbacks in the leaguea list that is again led by Patrick Mahomes, who was left on the edge of another big game with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Mahomes was looking for his third Super Bowl in a row, after leading his team in the 2019 season to beat the San Francisco 49ers, while in 2020 they fell to Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, this year the Bengals ended their dream.

Second on the list is Josh Allen. The Buffalo Bills quarterback earned a total of $43 million in 2021while the third on the list is Dak Prescott, a Cowboys quarterback who has been widely criticized for not being able to take his team to the big game.
Surprisingly, the Top 5 is closed by two quarterbacks who had problems in the 2021 campaign. On the one hand Deshaun Watson, with a salary of $39 million dollars without playing, and on the other Russell Wilson, of the Seahawks with $37 million dollars.
