Four Philadelphia Athletes Among 50 Highest Paid American Sportsmen

Sports Illustrated published its annual list of the highest paid American athletes this year and four local guys made the list. They combined salary (the first number) with endorsements, appearance fees and other earnings to get the total compensation for the year (the second number). Tiger Woods is still hanging on as the #1 earning athlete in the country with a whopping $62,294,116 in earnings. Amazingly, all but about $2 million is from endorsements.

As for the local guys, we've got three Phillies and one 76er. Assuming Michael Vick plays under the franchise tag next year at around $18 million, he'll definitely be on this list next year.

Ryan Howard, who is the highest paid athlete in town makes more in endorsements ($1.5 million) than any other athlete in town. Subway money.

#46 Elton Brand - $15,959,099 in salary, $16,459,099 total.

#45 Roy Oswalt - ⇥⇥⇥⇥$16,000,000 in salary, $16,500,000 total. It is worth nothing that the Astros are paying $7 million of his salary this year.
