The 32-year-old, who is in his 10th season in the league (all with Seattle), carries on his shoulders the responsibility of leading the Seahawks back to a postseason. His numbers have been growing throughout his career and last season he finished with 40 touchdown passes (personal best).
4. Deshaun Watson
The quarterback of the Houston Texans goes through a difficult time being investigated for allegations of alleged sexual abuse, which could leave him on the sidelines of the season that is about to begin. However, the player’s contract guarantees him $ 39 million for this 2021. Beyond the problems with the law, Watson comes from leaving good numbers in the last season in which he finished with 4,823 yards, the highest figure of the NFL.
