Some of the names on this list fooled me, not gonna lie.

Sure the top three of McGregor, Messi and Ronaldo is unsurprising…but Dak checking in at #4 in the entire world makes no sense whatsoever. Don’t get me wrong, Prescott is a solid QB, and the Cowboys were right to lock him up. But the dude shouldn’t even be the fourth highest paid player in the NFL…not even close.

It just goes to show that sometimes being the highest paid athlete just comes down to the market, not the actual talent.
