From a salary cap perspective, Seattle Seahawks' superstar quarterback Russell Wilson will be quite expensive in 2020, as he'll carry a $31 million cap hit in his ninth NFL season.

However, there is often a discrepancy between cap hit and the actual money that a quarterback will take home in a given year. In 2020, there will be a $21 million difference in his cap hit and the money that he actually earns in 2020.

With the differences between cap hit and actual earning in mind, here are the quarterbacks scheduled to actually earn the most money in 2020, courtesy of Spotrac:
