Which player is raking in the most dough this past year in the AFC East? It's not that three-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback from New England, or the best cornerback in the NFL who plays for the New York Jets.
Williams made $33.2 million this past year. That number was helped, of course, by a $19 million signing bonus he received in his $100 million contract with Buffalo.
Williams was one of six AFC East players to make Forbes' list of the 100 highest-paid athletes. Here's the AFC East contingent:
No. 16: DE Mario Williams, Bills, $33.2 million
No. 22: CB Darrelle Revis, Jets, $28.3 million
No. 28: QB Tom Brady, Patriots, $27.1 million
No. 38: QB Mark Sanchez, Jets, $24.2 million
No. 51: G Logan Mankins, Patriots, $21.9 million
No. 63: LT D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Jets, $20.3 million
