For the newbies we do a series called "How Much Do They Make" where we profile players and their salaries. While searching some of the new players I came across the top grossing salary in the NFL. Remember this is just his salary not his endorsements...meet Ben Roethlisberger.
For the 08 season here is his salary:
Base - 2,500,000
Signing bonus - $25,200,000
Other bonus - $$1,920
Total - $27,701,920
Ben was born in 1982 in Lima, Ohio (nickname Big Ben) and is a quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Couldn't find if he had a girlfriend/boyfriend or not...
