10. Cristiano Ronaldo
Ronaldo might not be a household name in every corner of the United States, but rest assured, he is a god among men in any home where football is being watched on a regular basis. The Real Madrid star has scored 50 goals per season for six years running now and his endorsement portfolio has grown to match his outsize salary.
He earned $79.5 million in 2015 alone, taking home a hefty $52.6 million in player salary and winnings, tacking on a handsome $27 million worth of endorsements. Thanks to his massive social media following of over 200 million people, there are few athletes in the world today who can match his level of worldwide reach.
