Football, not baseball, is Americas real pastime, if Nielsen ratings mean anything. We love knowing that our favorite NFL players risk career-threating injuries for our viewing pleasure. Its a lucrative sportnearly 200 players make over $3 million in overall salary and even the poorest NFLers income ($400k minimum) puts them in a higher tax bracket than most of us. Still, some of these salaries dont match the performance; a high cap number tends to limit what the team can do as far as signing other players. Hopefully these guys are giving to others this holiday season!

Cutler has also gained a reputation for accumulating stats only during garbage time. He signed a 7-year, $126.7 million deal in January. Cutler has appeared in one Pro Bowl in his career.
