Retired Players Get Their Due

Earlier this week, the National Football League Players Association was denied an appeal of a lawsuit brought about by retired NFL players, who claimed that the union failed to market their names and likenesses.

The previous verdict was for $7.1 million in compensatory damages and $21 million in exemplary damages.

That's not to say, however, that the marquee retired players didn't make a dime.

Here's a list of the top 10 retired players we've obtained from the U.S. Department of Labor. It indicates the amount the NFLPA paid these players last year.
