Highest Paid Football Player: Eli Manning and David Beckham. After signing a very lucrative contract with the NY Giants, Eli Manning is now considered as the highest paid footballer (the American version). However, he has some catching up to do with David Beckham, the other highest paid footballer (the soccer version), who’s making £30.1 million a year including endorsements. That’s pounds, baby, pounds.
Anyways, here’s an NBC report on Eli Manning’s contract with the New York Giants:
The Giants and their quarterback have agreed to a contract extension that will make Eli the highest paid quarterback, per year, in the history of the NFL. The six-year, $97.5 million contract will pay him $15.3 million a season, a million or so more than his brother will earn per season.
So Eli’s got tons and tons of money to buy himself some tons and tons of shirts so he won’t go shirtless anymore, eh?
Check out other shirtless quarterbacks/footballers: Brady Quinn, Tim Tebow, Matthew Stafford, Mark Sanchez, and Nate Montana.
Who of these guys look the hottest without their shirts?
