NFL's highest payroll is... - NFL - Rumors - FanNation
Any more complaints ?
An almost completely meaningless story.
What is that based on? This link (which I cannot prove its truthfulness) says otherwise
NFL Salaries 2010 β 2009, NFL Salaries Cap, NFL Salaries By Position, Team.
Trust me, the 'Kraft is cheap', 'Pats are cheap' talk will never end. Fans of opposing teams looking to disparage the Patriots have never facts get in the way of their hot air.
Of course I wouldn't be surprised if some will now say something along the lines of 'Pats trying to buy a championship' and therefore the victories don't count.
But regardless a ranking such as this one is rather meaningless. The Pats just happened to be ranked higher this year because of the contract extensions of Brady and Wilfork. It was actually a great business decision to get those contracts done in an uncapped year.

Forbes says our payroll is $92.7 million. The lowest are the chefs at 80++ mill. We're 58% more efficient than the median.
In 2007, we were the Yankees of the NFL. Now we're cheap. People will use whatever they can to take shots at the Pats.
BTW, I dunno how these numbers were compiled, but I bet it was pretty much all Brady's extension.
