There are a lot of professional athletes who play for teams in Minnesota. But just which athletes are set to take home the most money this year?

That was the question that Axios-Twin Cities reporter Nick Halter set to answer. He put his detective skills to the test and compiled the list of the 10 Highest Paid Professional Athletes in Minnesota in 2022. And, yeah, they ALL make some pretty decent money!

Of the 10 athletes on the list, the Minnesota Vikings take up five spots, while the Timberwolves notched three spots on the list this year. The Twins have the remaining two entries. Halter also noted in his story that the highest paid hockey player in Minnesota is the Wild's Kirill Kaprizov, who's set to make $10 million this year, putting him 13th on the list.

So who ARE the highest paid athletes in the Land of 10,000 Lakes in 2022? Keep scrolling to find out. (And keep scrolling after that to see how these pro athletes compare to the richest people overall in Minnesota!)
