Kansas City Chief Tyson Jackson is the 42nd highest paid athlete

Chiefs defensive end Tyson Jackson is getting paid. Sports Illustrated put together a list of the highest paid American athletes called the Fortunate 50 and last year’s No. 3 pick out of LSU cracked the bottom half of the list.

Between his salary and endorsements (but mostly salary), Jackson is pulling in $18.2 million. That placed him at No. 42 on the list.
