PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Forbes has released their list of the 100 highest paid athletes for 2012, and there are a few Philadelphia connections on the list.

Michael Vick will make the most of any Philadelphia athlete, coming in at #50 overall with $22 million. Ryan Howard was next at #53, making $21.5 million. Roy Halladay, Howard’s teammate both on the Phillies and on the disabled list ranked 61st with $20.6 million.
