There is no limit of how long a player can play; however if his or her contract expires and they do not get it renewed, they are either done playing or play with the team with no money and at the same time look to play for another team.
Life expectancy of athletes: There seems to have been only one
detailed study on this topic, which was published by a group from
Finland in 1993:
The study found the following life expectancies, when world class
athletes were compared with each other and a reference group of
non-athletes "The mean LE adjusted for occupational group, marital
status, and the age at entry to the cohort (and its 95% confidence
limits) was in endurance sports (long distance running and
cross-country skiing) 75.6 (73.6, 77.5) yr; in team games (soccer, ice
hockey, Basketball, as well as jumpers and short-distance runners from
Track and Field (73.9 (72.7, 75.1) yr; in power sports (boxing,
Wrestling, weight lifting, and throwers from field athletics) 71.5
(70.4, 72.2) yr; and in the reference group 69.9 (69.0, 70.9) yr." The
increase in life expectancy found in athletes was mainly due to
decreased cardiovascular mortality and participation in team sports.

A sports manager usually manages professional or semi professional sports teams. Sometimes they manage college teams. It is a stressful, exciting career that involves travel and competition.
The average income of a professional athlete varies by sport, time played and performance, For example in the NHL a first year player is signed to a contract of $350000 a year for 3 years, after that the player can be signed to a much larger contract based on their performance. By the time a player reaches their tenth year with good play they can have a contract of $10,000,000 a year or more if they are good enough.
