Top 5 Most Overpaid Professional Athletes
Athletes Who Make Far Too Much Money
Have you ever wondered which athletes are far too overpaid for their own good? We all know that there are a wealth of those guys in sports, and some may argue that all athletes are overpaid because they get to play a game for a living.
However, the reality of it all is that these guys put their health on the line every day -- and sometimes lose the battle to stay healthy and end their careers early. Guys like Alex Rodriguez are surely overpaid, right? I mean the guy cheated his way through baseball and somehow has the audacity to remain in the game and appeal the year and a half suspension placed upon him by the MLB. It's almost unfair that a guy who doesn't produce like he should have when he signed a monster deal play meaningful games late in the year.
On the other hand, there are some athletes who are severely underpaid and most of which are still under their rookie contracts. It's hard to tell how much an athlete is going to live up to expectations when they sign a huge contract for a long period of time, but more often than not, it doesn't turn out well for the organization.
Athletes have been increasingly making more, on average, throughout the years and some of these contract that pay the players $100 million or more are just ridiculous. How can you say the guy is going to be as good as he's been in years past. Another factor that decides athlete's high pay is how well they perform in a contract year. This means that their contract is about to be up and they know they need to play their best in order to earn a high salary for the following season.
We have compiled a list of the five most overpaid athletes in sports today. Tell us who we missed and who shouldn't be on the list.
