    America's Top 50 highest paid athletes

    SI.com - The Fortunate 50

    Tiger Woods doubles up the second place De La Hoya.

    Surprises to me:
    De La Hoya - I had no clue he made that much
    A-Rod - I thought he would have made more
    Mickelson - $47 million per year in endorsements...Wow.
    Dale Jr - He isn't even a top 5 driver in the sport yet is #10 overall.
    Peyton Manning - I bet he will shoot up the list after winning the SB
    Bonds - Only $2 million in endorsements. He really must be hated.
    Michelle Wie - She can't even win a tournament yet makes $20+ million.
    Vince Young - Didn't expect to see him on the list.
    Dwayne Wade - Will shoot up the list after his rookie contract expires.
    Pujols - Should be higher.
    Tom Brady - Should be higher.

    There are so many over-paid players on the list:
    Grant Hill
    Eddie Jones
    Jalen Rose
    Michelle Wie
    Stephon Marbury
    Jason Schmidt
    Steve Francis

    This is his fourth year, rookie contracts have already expired.

    Thanks for posting this, Me and a few friends had an argument about who made more between Lebron and A-rod and I figured Lebron! Positive Rep for you!

    Dale Earnhart Jr. will skyrocket in the next 2 years once he signs a new contract that allows him more of the merchandise sales and part owner of whatever team he choses. I would guess he will be 2nd in less than 2 years. Yeah Nascar has arrived folks. Get used to it.

    88=what Wei almost shot and would been banned from the LPGA for 1 year. So she faked a wrist injury to get off the course. Now she is going to play in the John Deere against Men. It will be a bloodbath. Go Zach Johnson

    I had no idea Phil Mickelson made that much off endorsements. I knew he had his hand on a few things, but 47 mil is impressive.

    Then he is getting absolutely hosed with his $3.8 million deal. Maybe his new salary isn't included because no way does he make $3.8 now.

    Re: America's Top 50 highest paid athletes

    Wade signed his extension last year, but it doesn't kick in until next season. He will make 12.4 mil next season.

    He may become part owner is a team but it won't be even close to the majority...especially if he goes to Gibbs or Hendrick.

    He already gets nearly 50% of his merchandise so I don't see that increasing much either...unless he starts winning.

    He should thank his dad for putting him in the Top 10.

    How about Michael Finley not being a starter but being one of the top five highest paid NBA players? I thought that was shocking.

    Little E will make 10 fold what he does right now.

    No chance will he be making $250 million per year...because that would be 10 fold. I would be that he'd see an extra $10 million but not 10 fold.

    I just noticed they had a link for the Top 20 International money makers on the top right of the page.
