My guess would be Arizona

Your friend is a moron if he thinks the Niners have anywhere close to the highest paid group or WR's.
Are we talking starters only?

Fitz is getting like $40 mil/4 yr., Boldin about $22.5 mil/4 yr.

DHB got his ridiculous $38 mil/5 yr. contract.

WhosYourMama got $40 mil/5 yr. and Burleson $49 mil/7 yr.

Not sure on other teams, but from my quick research, it looks like Seahawks so far.

keep in mind the raiders are paying walker a pretty high contract (unless he gave some back i cant remember).

honestly i would have to say the cardinals, maybe evne the steelers, didnt they give a big contract to holmes and hines has a pretty big contract too if i recall correctly.

Yes, they do...$32 mil/6 yr. contract and guess what? Branch was on the trading block, I'm sure deadline has passed and looks like no one picked him up.

Edit: Looks like Seahawks win (or lose) the highest paid WR core in the league.

Burleson's contract is not 49/7. That was the "poison pill" end of the deal if Minnesota matched his offers sheet. The deal is actually the same deal we gave Antonio Bryant. four-year, $15 million deal


Quote:

3/24/2006: Signed a four-year, $14.5 million contract. The deal included a $4 million signing bonus. 2009: $3.25 million, 2010: $3.25 million (Voidable Year), 2011: Free Agent

Quote:
To match the deal, though, the Vikings will have to swallow hard. Beyond the size of the total payout and a total of $5.25 million in guarantees, are two devious provisions.

The first would guarantee the entire contract, all $49 million, if Burleson plays five or more games in the state of Minnesota in any season of the contract. The Vikings, of course, play home games in Minneapolis, at the Metrodome there. The second bizarre provision would guarantee the full contract if Burleson is paid more on average per year than all of the Minnesota running backs combined. At least for now, the averages of the Vikings' tailbacks fall well shy of the $7 million average of the Burleson offer sheet.
