Vick has made $121,211,000 in his checkered career. Easily tops on this list.
Deangelo Hall has banked $71,120,00 in his lengthy career. He probably doesn't clip coupons on the way to the store.
Brandon Flowers has quietly earned $42,167,000 as a graduate of D.B.U..
Eddie Royal had a great career at Tech, and has banked $22,943,938 in the N.F.L.
