Tom Brady Headlines Boston Athletes On Forbes' World's Highest-Paid Athlete List

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady came in at No. 28 on Forbes' list of the World's Highest-Paid Athletes (via Forbes).

The No. 1 and No. 2 earners were both boxers: Floyd Mayweather ($85 million) and Manny Pacquiao ($62 million). Brady earned $27.1 million, $4 million of which came from endorsements with Under Armour and UGGs. Brady was joined on the list by teammate Logan Mankins, who was No. 51 ($21.9 million).

The lone Boston Celtics player on the list was Kevin Garnett at No. 57 ($21.1 million). The only Boston Red Sox player to rank in the top 100 was injured outfielder Carl Crawford No. 98 ($16.9 million).

While you won't see any of the New England Revolution on this list any time soon, Fenway Sports Group saw Liverpool FC midfielder Steven Gerrard make the list at No. 97 ($17 million).
