Total earnings: $28.3 million
Salary/winnings: $27 million
Endorsements: $1.3 million

 

Revis held out of training camp for a bigger contract in 2010. The New York Jets rewarded the NFL’s top cornerback with a four-year, $32 million deal. Revis shills for Nike and Range Rover. He is the only male athlete in North America used by Range Rover as a pitchman.

 

 

#38 Mark Sanchez

Total earnings: $24.2 million
Salary/winnings: $23.2 million
Endorsements: $1 million

 

 

 

 

The New York Jets quarterback restructured his contract in March to help clear salary cap room.

 

Part of his 2012 salary was converted to an $8 million signing bonus and the Jets added three option years starting in 2014. Sanchez will have competition this year from lightning rod QB Tim Tebow.

IslesWin86 .@KMart_LI So @Revis24 is paid more than a two-time SB MVP and a five-time World Series Champion…but is going to holdout for more. WOW. 6/19/12 10:47 AM
ElPlungeo Man, @revis24 is without question the most underpaid athlete in sports. I don’t blame him at all for holding out again. Dig your heals in! 6/19/12 10:37 AM

    I can’t tell if the two guys saying he’s underpaid and don’t blame him (Revis) for complaining are being sarcastic or not.
