Top Athletes - Last Names Starting with "R" - Post 1980

"R" is for Record-Breakers.  This list features a number of record breakers across several sports.

10. Dennis Rodman (NBA)
9.  Ed Reed (NFL)
8.  Manny Ramirez (MLB)
7.  Nolan Ryan (MLB)
6.  Patrick Roy (NHL)
5.  Mariano Rivera (MLB)
4.  Cal Ripken (MLB)
3.  David Robinson (NBA)
2.  Alex Rodriguez (MLB)
1.  Jerry Rice (NFL)

Rice was the obvious choice for #1, followed by an extremely talented and somewhat controversial group with A-Rod and Man-Ram.  Despite PED allegations, Rodriguez is one of the best I have ever seen.  Sandwiched between he and Ramirez are 5 of the greatest professionals ever.  Rodman grabbed the final spot over Ivan Rodriguez, Jim Rice and Andre Reed.
