Sitting For Dollars

A run of success can get a player a nice contract, but not all are lived up to. Injuries or ineffectiveness can land a player on the bench for long stretches as he counts his money. By our count, these are the 10 most expensive bench warmers in sports. Note: we cut some slack for players who fell victim to sudden injuries, but not for those out who over time have fallen into a pattern in which their time on the DL rivals that on the active roster. *Salary source: (Brian Garfinkel/Getty Images)
