The problem is … he’s wrong.
“I’ve known him. I’ve respected him truly,” Trump said about Brown … “Can you imagine him playing in the NFL today what he’d be making? Double what everyone else is getting! He was the greatest.”
Trump’s right — Brown was insanely good and arguably the best NFL player of all time. But, NFL contracts today … it’s a QB’s world!
The highest paid NFL players in 2018 (salary and bonuses, according to Forbes) are as follows …
1) Aaron Rodgers (QB) — $75.9 million.
2) Matt Ryan (QB) — $57.5 million
3) Jimmy Garoppolo (QB) — $43.1 million
And, get this … the highest paid NFL running back right now is Le’Veon Bell … who’s so upset with his contract situation, he’s sitting out!
So, would Brown get paid? Hell yeah. More than Aaron Rodgers … no way.
