Athletes Who Are Gold Diggers

There are a number of athletes out there today who care more about themselves and their own pocketbooks than anybody else. Of course, not all athletes are this way, but these 10 men are clearly the biggest gold diggers of the modern sports world.

Mayweather is one of the richest athletes in the world today, but that doesn't mean he is ever satisfied with his bank account. After all, Mayweather repeatedly fights guys well below his level, with the only reason being that a big check is always waiting in the wings.

Cano certainly cares about winning baseball games, but that doesn't mean that his own fortunes don't come before those of everyone else. For anyone that needs proof of this, look at the move Cano made from the New York Yankees to Seattle Mariners, which placed money above loyalty.

Welker puts his body on the line on the football field, but off it he is a shrewd businessman, and the New England Patriots previously learned this the hard way.

Bledsoe is threatening to sit out the 2014-2015 season, because no team will ante up the contract that he wants. Doing this will leave Bledsoe without any salary, so one must wonder whether his threat of sitting out scares any team in the NBA.

6. Samuel Eto'o

Eto'o played in Russia from 2011-2013, with the stated reason being that Anzi Makhachkala offered a contract that no other team in the world would match. If that doesn't exemplify a gold digger, than nothing else does.

Williams chased the money in his move to the Buffalo Bills in 2012, accepting \$50 million in guaranteed salary in the process. But really, any talented player that joins the Bills in free agency is probably a gold digger.

4. Kris Humphries

Humphries has not been a gold digger in regards to his own career, but his 72-day long marriage to Kim Kardashian in 2011 certainly cements a spot on this list.

3. Alex Rodriguez

Rodriguez has been constantly chasing the money throughout his entire career, becoming a very rich man in the process, but also one that is almost unanimously disliked by sporting fans.

Ibrahimovic has never been shy about letting the world know that he cares more about himself than anyone or any team in the world today. That doesn't mean that he is a bad guy, just that he will chase the money.

Rodman went to North Korea multiple times and hung out with Kim Jong-un with no other apparent reason than to make a quick buck. If that is not the ultimate gold digger, than I do not know what is.
