Top 10 Highest Paid Athletes 2011

1 Tiger Woods
Last Year's Rank: 1
Tiger's empire has crumbled, but Rome wasn't built in a day. His Nike and EA deals still keep him on top of the charts while other endorsers -- and his game -- have gone in other directions. But his reign at No. 1 may soon be over. For more on Tiger go here.

2 Phil Mickelson
Last Year's Rank: 2
Lefty's hefty sponsorship portfolio isn't flashy -- deals with Callaway, KPMG, Rolex, Barclays Capital, ExxonMobil and Amgen/Pfizer -- but he's one of the most reliable endorsers in pro sports. For more on Phil Mickelson go here.

3 LeBron James
Miami Heat (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 4
There's plenty of room for LeBron's talent in his $9 million Coconut Grove mansion. King James' compound features a wine cellar, library, home theater and dock that can fit two 60-foot yachts. But all the money in the world can't buy an NBA title.

4 Peyton Manning
Indianapolis Colts (NFL)
Last Year's Rank: 9
Who needs a lucrative new contract, anyway? If the Colts place the franchise tag on the four-time NFL MVP again next year, Manning will earn more than $50 million in salary over two seasons.

5 Alex Rodriguez
New York Yankees (MLB)
Last Year's Rank: 5
If A-Rod's bat catches fire, he could cash in this season on the first milestone bonus written into his contract: another $6 million for passing Willie Mays (No. 4 at 660) on the all-time home-run list.

6 Kobe Bryant
Los Angeles Lakers (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 7
Kobe relinquished a pair of back-to-back titles this spring: the NBA championship and his crown as the NBA's top jersey seller worldwide. LeBron's No. 6 Heat top now outsells Kobe's No. 24.

7 Kevin Garnett
Boston Celtics (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 15
This could be KG's final appearance on this list, as he's set to earn $21 million next season in the last year of his contract and could retire. He'll have earned more than $300 million over his career.

8 Matt Ryan
Atlanta Falcons (NFL)
Last Year's Rank: NR
The bulk of guaranteed money in Ryan's six-year, $72 million contract he signed in 2008 should be paid out this year, when he'll earn a $22 million roster bonus on top of his $10.25 million salary.

9 Tom Brady
New England Patriots (NFL)
Last Year's Rank: T-28
Brady's four-year, $72 million extension signed last September gives him the highest average annual salary in the NFL. He's due to collect $10 million of his $16 million signing bonus in August.

10. Dwight Howard
Orlando Magic (NBA)
Last Year's Rank: 12
Any dream of Superman joining Lakers needs a cold dose of reality: Howard would have to accept a huge reduction from $17.9 million he's own next year; Kobe might have to take a pay cut, too.
