Top Ten Highest Paid Retired Sports Athletes

We always hear of sports figures filing for bankruptcy a few years after leaving the sport that paid them so much. We always have the same question, how is that possible? Well here are the top ten athletes that continue to rack in the money after they retired. 

The guys over a Forbes got a hold of some of the most famous figures in sports bank accounts. After what is I am sure exhaustive research, seriously imagine every sports athlete that has retired? They have determined which ones are still making a good living.

I know no one out there is shocked by the number one person, but I was shocked to find not a single NFL Player in the top ten. The closest NFL player comes in at number 12 and it is former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach. Also Roger Staubach if you want to hook up the biggest Dallas Cowboys fan with some money, that would be cool.
