Sam Bradford once again leads the Minnesota Vikings in base salary for the 2017 season and no other teammate is scheduled to make even half of what he is now that Adrian Peterson is gone. Bradford is entering the final year of the contract he signed with the Philadelphia Eagles, but after him are a couple of linemen and then defensive backs on the base-salary chart.

My top choice over overpaid is Bradford at this point. Mainly, I want to see a repeat of last year before he's worth the money, but to not pick the QB, Jarius Wright is next on the list for overpaid.

Underpaid (and I'm trying to avoid rookie deals), Danielle Hunter, but I think he's still on his rookie deal. But he definitely deserves a good contract soon. It's hard to find a non-rookie who seems underpaid. Theilen still seems like he might be underpaid.

Lamur, Wright, and Sharrif are overpaid. Bradford really isn't overpaid. He's paid pretty much middle of the pack, and that matches his performance.

Sharif is being paid his 5th year option, which the Bikings can't get away from due to his injury.

I can't agree. As far as the market rates go for QBs, he's right around where he should be paid. He's not overpaid.

In fact, I'm not sure if I could say that there is one player on the roster that is overpaid. Maybe Jarius Wright, but even so, he's not egregiously overpaid. Sharrif Floyd is certainly overpaid as he hasn't been available, but that's a function of the option year, similar to Kalil a year ago.

The next few years we'll see as we still need to see deals for Rhodes, Barr, Waynes, Kendricks, and Hunter. I'm not sure if they'll all be here in 2020, although they probably should be. A lot will also be dependent on the QB position.

OL looks to be an expensive unit once again. Hopefully they perform better than last year and earn it (looking at Boone and Remmers mostly). Reiff isn't too bad for a starting LT.

Floyd's salary hurts if he can't play, lots of money sitting on PUP potentially. Especially if it could have bought us something more in FA.

Looking at only base salaries can be a bit misleading but I would argue that Kyle Rudolph is overpaid more than Jarius Wright.

On the other hand, at least Rudolph plays most of the offensive snaps.

That's fair, but of the other TEs that make less than him in the market, only Rob Gronkowski, Jordan Reed and Travis Kelce could I easily say are better than him, but they all surpass him significantly in base salary in 2018.

In the end, I'd still rather have Rudolph at $5.1M than Coby Fleener at $5.8M, so I'm not sure that he's all that significantly overpaid. I think he's being paid a fair rate.

I would rather have Rudolph for $5.1M than the $6.8M I saw in the table below. Looking it up, I see that the $6.8M is not his base salary this year but his cap hit. Rudolph will be earning $5.5M this year and has a signing bonus proration of $1.3M.

That is still overpaying a TE that is a mediocre at best blocker that drops a lot of important passes IMO but it isn't overpaying as much as I was thinking. To be fair, he has also caught a lot of key balls.
