AARON RODGERS

Salary: $26,500,000, 7th in the NFL
Comparable NBA salary: Jrue Holiday’s $26,386,111, 18th in the NBA

Last season, Rodgers ranked first in the NFL in pass interception percentage (.3), fourth in comeback wins (3), sixth in passing yards (4,442), sixth in total offensive yards (4,358) and ninth in passing yards per game (277.6). His 25 passing touchdowns were a bit low for him (considering he threw an NFL-high 40 touchdowns just two years ago), but he only threw a pair of interceptions all season. Still, Rogers is a two-time Most Valuable Player, former Super Bowl MVP, seven-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro selection. Holiday has made one All-Star team and while he’s an excellent two-way player for the New Orleans Pelicans, he’s not typically regarded as a star. With that said, the 28-year-old deserves credit for filling the stat sheet this year, averaging 21.2 points (a career-high), 7.7 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals.
