Hey, Anybody Got A Loan For Eli Manning?

Remember back in 2009 when Eli Manning signed a seven-year, $106.7-million contract that made him the NFL's highest-paid quarterback? Remember all the gnashing of teeth? All the cries of 'Eli Manning doesn't deserve to be the highest-paid quarterback?'

Well, a couple of years later, Manning doesn't have to worry about that. According to SI.com's list of the Fortunate 50, the highest-earning American athletes, Eli isn't even the highest-earning quarterback in his own city any more.

Manning placed 47th on the list, having earned a cool $16 million between salaries and endorsements during the past year. Eli was 13th on the list a year ago.

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez surpassed Manning in earnings over the past year, raking in $17.75 million, to place 38th overall. Sanchez made $15.25 million of that in salary and bonuses.

It doesn't seem right that, to be honest, that a second-year quarterback who has not yet accomplished nearly what Manning has now brings in more cash than Manning does. That, however, is the nature of the business.
