In their recently released numbers for 2014, Manning came in tied for No. 66 overall with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees and professional boxer Canelo Alvarez, earning a cool $41 million this year alone.
Manning's breakdown shows him earning $21 million in pay, $13.5 million in salary/winnings and an additional $7.5 million in endorsements (Toyota, Dunkin Donuts, DirecTV, etc.).
World famous boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. topped the list with $210 million in projected earnings for 2014 (amazing when you consider he has $0 in endorsements), with soccer player Luis Suarez rounding out the Top 100 with projected earnings of $34.6 million.
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo did not crack the Top 100.
