the 2nd most paid player in the nfl is the offensive left takle
The lowest average paid position is Tight End but the generally least paid positions are Punter and Kicker.
They are paid the most in the NFL because they are the most sucesssful team in the NFL and they are awesome.
The second highest paid position in the NFL is actually the left offensive tackle at an average yearly salary of $5.5 million. Why so much? Because he has the job of protecting the blind side of the highest paid player in the NFL, the quarterback.
I think Peyton Manning gets payed the most in the NFL
