NFL players are getting paid, and many are breaking league records with their offseason deals.
On Tuesday, Seahawks Pro Bowl safety Jamal Adams signed a record four-year, $70 million deal with Seattle, making him the highest-paid safety in the league.
Last year, Patrick Mahomes dethroned Russell Wilson as the -- and player -- in the league with a new contract from the Kansas City Chiefs. The 10-year deal worth up to $503 million with incentives is the biggest deal in sports history and the first signing over half a billion dollars and heading into this year he remains the highest-paid at his position.
Another player seeing dollar signs last season was Christian McCaffrey, who signed a four-year, $64 million contract extension with the Carolina Panthers and is taking home an average of $16 million a year, with $38 million guaranteed. The dual threat remains the highest-paid running back.
