Well, I can promise you one thing; there aren’t going to be any NBA players on this list! Going forward there are five guys that I can see getting paid some serious money in the next several months. Oh wait, they already get paid serious money, so let me rephrase.. Five guys that are going to get paid even more serious money this year.
The market for players of this caliber is out of control. The direction that professional athlete salaries is headed is truly mind-boggling. But hey, it’s sports fanatics like me that make that a reality. Stay tuned in on these players, it’s going to be fun…
Here are the five guys….
Breezy isn’t going to get Peyton money (about $23M/year) but he’s going to be close to the 20′s. You better believe that, which is more than he’s making now.
It’s just business. CC is going to opt out of his contract. The Yankees will freak out. He will get more years, and more money. Pretty sweet you can do that with a $160 million contract.
You’d be hard pressed to find someone who deserves a bigger pay raise in all of professional sports. DeSean is making about $550,000 this season. He’s going to get a contract, and it’s going to be a huge huge raise.
Prince is leaving Milwaukee, and he’s going to get PAID. He’s going to get paid a lot. If Adrian Gonzalez got 7-years, $154 million. It’s not inconceivable that the 27-year old Fielder could get close to $200 million.
This is going to get stupid.. Pujols wants 10-years, $300 million. He may just get it. It’s scary. This will be the biggest contract EVER!
