Who wouldn't take Beckham's 'slump'?

Word from England is that Galaxy star David Beckham's endorsement income dipped by 10 percent last year, to a measly $14.6 million.

You can add to that $6.5 million from the Galaxy, plus his salary -- handsome, we're sure -- from his loan stint at AC Milan. And Brand Beckham, the company that manages his income from Galaxy merchandise and joint endorsements with his wife, Victoria, throws several million (nearly $5.85 million in 2008) his way.

So the Beckhams aren't exactly hurting.

Beckham's Footwork Productions manages his endorsement income, and its filing with Companies House, the official British registry of companies, was made public Friday.
