Terrelle PryorAfter maintaining his position as the second-highest paid athlete in the world for more than three years, former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor finally passed Tiger Woods on the list of highest-paid athletes with earnings of $76 milllion over the past 12 months.

Pryor, who decided on Tuesday to skip his senior season at Ohio State, raked in about $45 million from selling Buckeye memorabilia, $20 million from selling autographs and $11 million in other assorted improper benefits.

Rounding out the list at No. 3 is NBA star Kobe Bryant with $53 million, followed by recent top NFL draft pick Cam Newton at $49 million and USC freshman running back Dillion Baxter at $47 million.
