How much are NFL stars paid compared to NBA players?

ANTONIO BROWN

Salary: $15,125,000, 51st in the NFL
Comparable NBA salary: Gorgui Dieng’s $15,170,787, 78th in the league

Brown has been consistently unstoppable, setting NFL records for most receiving yards in a six-year span (9,145) and most catches in a six-year span (686). Even at 30 years old, he is still arguably the best wide receiver in the league. Last year, Brown led all players in receiving touchdowns (15) and he topped 1,200 yards for the sixth-straight year. Brown’s messy breakup from the Pittsburgh Steelers was largely due to him feeling underpaid, so it’s no surprise that his NBA comparison is a role player. Dieng benefited from hitting free agency when the cap spiked in the summer of 2016. This season, he has averaged 5.5 points and 3.9 rebounds in 12.6 minutes off the bench for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
