    This article touches on how players don't receive all of their big contracts and how mcnabb and favre were the only QBs to receive more than 50% of the contract. With mcnabb receiving more than Favre. This is news to me, as I was under the impression he got nearly all of the money from that contract.

    It's the dead season in the nfl so it's all I got for ya.

    well, thats not the worst story posted on here in the offseason.

    The top headline on NFL.com one day last week as something along the lines of "kapernick responds to fans upset that he was seen wearing miami dolphins hate at 4th of july party"

    Andrew Brandt wrote an article on Favre's money after he had been traded to the Jets: http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Favres-lucrative-career-in-Green-Bay.html

    The Packers paid the ol' gunslinger $98 million over the 16 years he played for them. The Jets paid him 12 million, and the Vikings paid him over 28 million for his 2 years. Looks to me as if he was paid pretty much all he was signed for, with the Jets and Vikings picking up the last 3 years of his Green Bay money. And none of this includes the small fortune he makes with his Wrangler ads.

    I was under the assumption he received most of his money from that contract. I'm slightly confused as to where the OP article got that idea
