A Decade of Super Bowl Quarterback Salaries

Super Bowl XLVII contains two teams of very different makeups, systems, and means of production, starting with the quarterback position. While recent Super Bowls have seen a "longshot" or "not-likely" quarterbacks at the helm, the duo of Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick on the big stage seems unprecedented in this generation of football. With both quarterbacks still in their entry-level rookie contracts we thought we'd take a look back and analyze the financial status of the starting quarterbacks from Super Bowls past.
