It isn't unusual for the QB to be the highest paid player on a team but like I said, he better start earning it because he's not a top ten QB and his salary is about to become just that.
Carr definitely needs to step up his game to earn those numbers in the next few years. For reference here are the franchise (top 5) and transition (top 10) numbers:
Franchise tender: $9,958,000
Transition tender: $8,169,000
Don't think they have been updated for Payton's new salary.
