Peyton Manning One of Top 10 Paid Athletes

Sports Illustrated has listed the top fifty athletes salaries, and I was surprised to see that I had to go down the list to number nine to find the first NFL player, who was Peyton Manning. Between salary and endorsements, Manning makes $30,800,000 a year. Not too hard to believe, especially since Manning is a four-time MVP. In fact, the Mannings place very well on the list, but Eli is listed at number thirteen with salary and endorsements of $26,500,000.
