7. Larry Fitzgerald-$118,282,500

Palmer’s teammate Larry Fitzgerald cashed in on one of the richest NFL contracts of all time. For seven years and $113 million, Fitzgerald established strong financial foundation to invest in Phoenix area real estate, a strategy that has netted the Pro Bowl wide receiver millions more in net worth. The overall third pick in the draft, Fitzgerald has benefited from ending contracts at times when less accomplished wide receivers passed him in annual earnings. Many people consider Fitzgerald one of the three greatest wide receivers of his generation.
