Oh, to be rich!

Sports Illustrated once again compiled its annual list of America’s richest athletes and ranked them from 1-50.

Not surprisingly, Tiger Woods tops the list at #1. Nobody else even comes close to Woods, whose yearly income (which includes each athlete’s salary/winnings plus endorsements) is more than double that of any other athlete on the list. Woods is closing in on $100 million.

At #2 is another professional golfer, Phil Mickelson, totalling almost $46 million a year. The largest jump from last year’s list has to be Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer. Not even ranked last year, Palmer lands at #5, thanks to his $119 million contract extension. Albert Pujols made a significant leap as well, jumping to #21 after failing to make the list last year.

After Woods and Mickelson, the rest of the top 10 goes in this order: Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Carson Palmer, LeBron James, Derek Jeter, A-Rod, Dale Earnhardt, Jr, and Michael Vick. See SI.com for the rest of the top 50.
