The 'Mo' money, mo' problems season in the NFL is officially upon us' quiz

The NFL free agent floodgates are officially open and unsurprisingly, teams are falling all over themselves to throw as much money as they can at their problems. 

Almost $15 million a year for a QB who has thrown a total 11 passes over the last two seasons? What could go wrong? Nearly $12 million per year combined for the Bills' third and fourth receivers? I guess! The aforementioned Bills signing every fullback they can get their hands on? Whatever you say!

Of course, it wouldn't be the offseason in the NFL if Washington wasn't self-immolating behind the scenes, and like clockwork, the Fightin' Snyders appear to be coming apart at the seams. Their general manager is nowhere to be found and appears to be on the outs with the team anyway, putting the team's fans in full-on mutiny mode. They also just lost their two best wide receivers to free agency, and, oh yeah, the best QB the team has had since Joe Theismann reportedly wants out of Washington in the worst way but is caught in the midst of a petty back-and-forth with the team's notoriously petulant owner. Can't even get the offseason champs thing right these days. 

And that gets us to today's quiz. With NFL teams making it rain all across the country today, we want to see how well you know last year's highest paid players at every position in each conference. Eight minutes are on the clock. 

Good luck!
