Peyton Manning makes the list - but isn't as high as you think.

It's NFL free agency time again and that means two things; endless rumours and speculation about who's going where and average players getting millions more dollars than they are worth.

Welcome to the players that make the best and brightest of the Champions League and Premier League look like peasants.

To put things in perspective, with his £300,000 a week, even Wayne Rooney would struggle to crack this list.

That's how much NFL franchise owners pay their star players in the hope of that all-important Super Bowl success.
