Aaron Rodgers is the top paid first-string quarterback in the NFL with an annual salary of $66,900,00, according to a study conducted by AT&T Savings. That's $146,038 per minute of playing time.

AT&T Savings found that each professional football player gets about 11 minutes of playtime per game. They conducted a study to see how much money that amounts to per hour and minute for first string quarterbacks, using data from the 2018 season.

The Pack's Aaron Rodgers topped the list for highest salary. AT&T Savings found that he makes an hourly wage of $8,762,304, so just a little bit of money...

Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys was marked as the lowest paid with a yearly salary of $630K.

AT&T Savings based this information off the total time played for every professional first-string quarterback for each professional team in the 2018 season. They then calculated each quarterback's number of total snaps in regular season and playoff games and multiplied that by their offense's average seconds of play. From there, they divided the player's 2018 earnings to find out how much they made per hour of playtime.
