Jerry Rice, Football
Arguably the greatest football player ever, Rice was a three-time Super Bowl champion, a 10-time first-team All-Pro and the NFL career leader in receptions, receiving yards and touchdown catches before he turned 40.
In 2002, the year Rice turned 40, he caught 92 passes for 1,211 yards, both his best marks since 1996. Rice played until 2004 and signed a one-day contract with San Francisco for $1,985,806.49 before officially retiring in 2006. He didn't collect on that ceremonial deal, the amount of which was derived from his first year in the league (1985), his uniform number (80), the year ('06) and the team he played for over his first 16 seasons (49ers).
