This is a list of the most overpaid professional athletes right now. There are various reasons for different players to be overpaid in 2019. They could be injury-prone, maybe they're performing below expectations, or perhaps age is catching up with them.

One thing to remember is that if teams are dumb enough to overspend, the players are smart enough to sign the contract. So we can't fault any player on the list for doing what's best for them and their families. You have to question some NBA and NFL front offices' decision making, since they're the ones ultimately handing out the bad contracts to players like Jared Goff and Chris Paul. MLB players also have a place on the list, with some of the worst contracts in sports belonging to baseball players like Bryce Harper and Giancarlo Stanton.

So vote for who you think are the most overpaid athletes in all of professional sports! Be sure to share the list with your friends to have them vote as well!
