By now, it is well established that, even with the monumental importance of other positions in a team, the quarterback distinctly plays the most important role. The value in of these quarterbacks in NFL betting is not just limited to the starters, but it also extends to the backups as well. Take the 2014 season for instance, the majority of the highly paid starters in 2014 were starting quarterbacks.For the backups, Buffalo’s Kyle Orton was the highest paid backup quarterback in 2014, earning $5 million for his services. Considerably low when compared to the massive figures racked up by the starting QBs, Orton’s money was still better than most of the top salaries earned in other positions.
Now, whereas money is not the only factor in assessing a player’s value, there is no doubt that it greatly tells a lot about the player’s potential and his value to the team. A good example is Green Bay’s starting QB Aaron Rodgers, the highest paid player in 2014, who went on to have a monster season, taking his team to the conference finals and earning himself the NFL MVP award of the 2014-15 season. Therefore, although the our list of most valuable backup quarterback given below will be focusing on skills and the expected input of the players, the aspect of salary will also be duly considered. That being said, let’s get down to the list, shall we?
