9. Matt Ryan ($67.3 million)
In 2018, Matt Ryan earned $62.3 million as the quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons, plus another $5 million in endorsements to put him in the No. 9 spot.
Nicknamed “Matty Ice,” Ryan is a former Boston College player. He was drafted third overall in the 2008 draft.
He’s likely to shoot up the list quickly as he recently became the highest paid in NFL history with his $150 million five-year contract extension he signed with the Falcons just this year.
