There is a huge inefficiency in the NFL much like the NBA.
At $15mm per year Lebron James is way undervalued. Because there is a player maximum salary the best player can't be paid their true worth, but for argument's sake the 20th best player Rudy Gay also makes more than $15 million.
In the NFL, the top quarterbacks are making $18, 19 and $20mm. The next tier will make $16 or 17 million, but the second tier quarterbacks are no bargain in a salary cap world.
Then you have guys like Kaepernick and Wilson playing 4 years for $4mm or less and their teams are getting tremendous bargains and flexibility to try to build a superior team in other spots.
