Cue the people who are going to see these and make assumptions believing these are yearly averages.
A lot of these that seem inflated are so because guys received bonuses this year. Ex: Athyba Rubin is not the top paid DT, but signed an extension last year which included a bonus this year, thus the highest salary for 2012.
True, these are for 2012, but a good amount are top 5-10 at those positions overall. A good amount are on last year of contracts and will look for new deals.

Zach Miller is the highest TE? lol
Him, Vernon and Marcedes Lewis are top 3 paid, Vernon is #1 I believe overall. Miller got way way too much, and isn't really that good. John Carlson is a much better TE and they let him go to Minnesota for 5yr 25M deal.

This thread reaffirms the great job that our Front Office has done. We have arguably the most talented roster in the NFL from top to bottom, and we have very few players who rank in the top 10 paid at their respective positions. Just a great job of determining the player's value and paying them accordingly.
LOL @ the Bucs committing $22 million on 2 guards. I'm also shocked to see how much Zach Miller, Atyhba Rubin, and Calvin Pace make.
All of the Vincent Jackson's guaranteed money is in yr 1 and 2. But they went overboard with deals this offseason, overpaid Eric Wright, Carl Nicks and Jackson got huge deals, that were outrageous. They will need to extend Freeman at some point, and they have Penn and Davin Joseph already on big deals, plus Jeremy Zuttah signed a good sum deal in the offseason.
Rubin got an extension before the 2011 season, good amount over 25M. Pace I believe without looking at my workbook is in last year of his contract, might have 2 yrs at most left, so he may want a new deal.
