Him? How much?

Eli Manning will get $106.9 million over the next seven seasons as quarterback for the New York Giants. That's an NFL-high average annual income of $15.27 million.

The guy doesn't even look athletic much less like a pro football player!

Moni -- they do seem to have a lock on things:

"Peyton Williams Manning (born March 24, 1976 in New Orleans, Louisiana) is an American football quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League. One of only two three-time NFL MVPs, he is statistically one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. He was drafted by the Colts as the first overall pick in 1998 after a standout college football career with the Tennessee Volunteers. The son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning, he is the older brother of current New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning."
