Former NFL Stars Who Are Surprisingly Poor

Former NFL Stars Who Are Surprisingly Poor


By now, tales of former NFL stars losing millions
of dollars hardly surprise us. Many of the stories about these guys burning
through cash to the point of bankruptcy are downright sad. They’re also cautionary tales. Here are some former NFL stars who are surprisingly
poor. Former Texas Longhorns quarterback Vince Young
was selected for induction into the College Football Hall of Fame in January 2019. He was drafted by the Tennessee Titans with
the third pick of the 2006 NFL Draft, and he won Rookie of the Year honors and then
Comeback Player of the Year for the 2009 season. He earned over $35 million from his NFL contracts,
as well as a much lesser amount during a short stint in the Canadian Football League. In June 2017, Greg Bishop of Sports Illustrated
spoke with Young about the quarterback’s financial issues. Bishop made note of Young’s, quote, “unchecked
generosity,” and Young noted that he never closely examined his own finances, instead
trusting a financial advisor and an uncle whom he appointed as his manager. “People out there are just- this is ruthless,
man.” In court documents from January 2014, Young’s
debt was listed as “between $1,001,000 and $10 million.” Young was attempting to resurrect his career
in the CFL when Bishop’s story went public, but the QB never made it up North nor back
into the NFL. In June 2019, Young told Houston’s Sports
Radio 610 he had completed a stay in a rehab facility and was four months sober at that
time. Warren Sapp will forever be remembered as
one of the greatest defensive tackles in NFL history. Named to seven Pro Bowl squads and six All-NFL
Teams, Sapp won Defensive Player of the Year in 1999, and he was part of the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers squad that routed the Oakland Raiders to win Super Bowl 37. Unsurprisingly, Sapp was voted into the Pro
Football Hall of Fame in 2013, his first year of eligibility. Following his retirement, he became a fixture
on the NFL Network. Sapp earned over $82 million during his career,
but by April 2012, he reportedly had less than $1,000 in his checking account. According to the Associated Press, he owed
more than $6.7 million to creditors and back child support and alimony at the time. His situation became even sadder in February
2015 when he was arrested on charges of soliciting a prostitute and assault. The NFL Network terminated his contract, although
those charges were dropped later that year. Terrell Owens represents different things
to different people. Some see him as one of the greatest wide receivers
in NFL history who deserved to be voted into the Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility
and who heroically returned from injury to start for the Philadelphia Eagles in Super
Bowl 39. Others within the football community remember
him as the quintessential diva: a me-first player who became an outcast with three separate
franchises and who cared more about his touchdown celebrations and his brand than about winning
a championship. In October 2017, Owens told the Associated
Press he had run through most of the $80 million he made over the course of his 15-year career,
due to bad investments and business deals. Back in 2012, he told GQ, “I’m in hell. I don’t have […] friends. I don’t want […] friends. That’s how I feel.” Perhaps that’s why the eccentric wideout continues
to appear in public in a variety of ways, whether on MTV reality shows, video-game covers,
or his own Hall of Fame ceremony. He also joked about returning to the NFL for
the 2019 season. Or at least we assume he was joking. You never know with Owens. “To me, I wouldn’t say I’m broke, you know,
maybe in a financial bind. But to say that I’m broke, I think that’s
a stretch.” William Perry, affectionately known as “The
Refrigerator” or “Fridge” thanks to his imposing size and alarming athleticism, was arguably
the most popular player on the all-time great Chicago Bears defense that helped the club
win Super Bowl 20 in 1986. Perry was also occasionally used as a fullback
in short-yardage situations, which only increased his commercial appeal. He even tallied a rushing score in that championship
win. While he struggled with his weight throughout
his career, he managed to play for nearly a decade from 1985 through 1994. Perry’s downfall has been almost as well-documented
as his on-the-field achievements. In 2011, ESPN wrote about his struggles with
health issues such as alcoholism and diabetes. In 2015, Perry’s brother, Michael Dean Perry,
told Fox 32 Chicago that the former NFL star was living off a monthly social security disability
check and some disability money from the NFL. And in June 2016, Sports Illustrated reported
that Perry was at least 150 pounds overweight and that his earnings were, quote, “long gone.” Mark Brunell was the first great quarterback
to ever play for the Jacksonville Jaguars. The team traded for Brunell’s rights ahead
of the 1995 regular season, and he started in 117 games for them through their 2003 campaign. He led the NFL in passing yards in 1996 and
guided the Jaguars to the AFC Championship Game twice. The Washington Redskins traded for Brunell
in 2004, and then he won a Super Bowl ring as a backup with the New Orleans Saints in
2010. He eventually made his way to the New York
Jets for a couple of seasons before announcing his retirement in 2012. Afterwards, he became an assistant coach at
a prep school. Brunell’s finances came underneath the microscope
in June 2010 when he filed for bankruptcy. It was a series of poor real estate investments
that sunk him. He listed $24.7 million in liabilities when
he filed. His involvement with Whataburger franchises
in the Jacksonville area also contributed to his money problems. Outside of his financial troubles, Brunell
works with the Game Plan for Life organization, he’s a head coach at The Episcopal School
of Jacksonville, and he works as an analyst for News 4 Jax. Few former NFL players can adequately compare
to the highest of highs and lowest of lows that wide receiver Andre “Bad Moon” Rison
has gone through. Rison made the Pro Bowl every season from
1990 through 1993 and again in 1997, and he was with the Green Bay Packers when that storied
franchise defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 31. He also famously lost a home in a fire started
by his then-girlfriend, Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes of the R&B girl group TLC. We would later learn that that wasn’t his
only asset that would eventually go up in flames. Rison filed for bankruptcy in 2007 because
of overdue child support bills. He had gone through the $17 million he earned
with the Cleveland Browns, and that doesn’t account for other NFL contracts he signed
during his 12 years in the league or the money he made with the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts. In the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary Broke, Rison
claimed to have spent at least $1 million on jewelry and that he had lost back-to-back
houses at some point in his career. Running back Deuce McAllister earned back-to-back
trips to the Pro Bowl in 2002 and 2003. Two years later, the New Orleans Saints rewarded
him with a new contract. It was one of the most lucrative deals ever
signed by a running back at the time. McAllister remained with the Saints until
the end of the 2008 season, when he became a salary-cap casualty. However, the team gave him a championship
ring even though he wasn’t an active member of the Super Bowl 44 roster, and he’s in the
Saints Hall of Fame. McAllister wasn’t as good at selling cars
as he was on the field, though. In 2009, Nissan sued the former back’s car
dealership and claimed he owed the company $7 million. His dealership company also filed for bankruptcy
that same year. In August 2011, The Times-Picayune reported
a home once owned by McAllister was auctioned off for nearly $900,000. Nissan again sued him in January 2013, after
claiming he hadn’t paid on a judgment stemming from the previous case. In 2018, he began working as an analyst for
the New Orleans Fox affiliate WVUE. After two successful seasons with the Denver
Broncos, running back Clinton Portis found himself traded to the Washington Redskins
in 2004. Part of that transaction involved Portis putting
pen to paper on a contract that included $17 million in bonuses and that could have been
worth more than $50 million in total earnings. That deal made him the highest-paid back in
NFL history at the time. He spent seven seasons with the Redskins and
retired in August 2012. In June 2017, Sports Illustrated reported
on Portis’ post-playing hardships. He had entrusted millions of dollars to financial
advisors for projects such as a casino that was shut down in 2012. He reportedly had only $150 in his bank account
and was hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt when he declared bankruptcy in 2015. Portis went so far as to admit to SI that
he considered murder as a form of revenge against those who wronged him. Fortunately, though, he never took that leap. Unlike many of the other players on this list,
quarterback Charlie Batch never played in a Pro Bowl or was widely considered one of
the top starters at his position. While he won a pair of Super Bowl rings with
the Pittsburgh Steelers, he did so as a backup. Nevertheless, he had a fairly long career,
playing in the NFL from 1998 through 2012. Theoretically, his finances should’ve been
in order before he took a knee on his career. He earned a $13 million signing bonus with
the Detroit Lions in 2000, and it’s estimated that he made well over $20 million in the
rest of his playing days. Batch was still on Pittsburgh’s roster behind
starter Ben Roethlisberger on the depth chart when he filed for bankruptcy in 2011. Court documents showed that Batch was $6 million
in the hole when he filed. Fortunately, though, in contrast to other
stories of pro athletes who go broke, this one has a somewhat happy ending. The court discharged many of Batch’s debts
in June 2011, which allowed him to keep his Super Bowl rings, among other assets. Currently, he makes appearances on CBS Sports
Radio. The Buffalo Bills selected running back Travis
Henry in the second round of the 2001 NFL Draft, and he looked like an absolute steal
by the end of his second season in the league. He rushed for 1,438 yards and 13 rushing touchdowns
in 2002, which earned him a Pro Bowl berth, and he followed that by tallying 10 rushing
TDs and over 1,300 yards on the ground the next season. Alas, injuries ultimately ended his time with
the Bills, and multiple drug-test failures kept him off the field after 2007. The league reinstated him in 2012, but he
never played again. In 2009, Henry told the New York Times that
he was broke after fathering nine children with nine women. Those financial burdens resulted in him allegedly
turning to a life of crime, and he was sentenced to three years in prison for his role in financing
a drug trafficking operation. By the time he was released and reinstated
by the league, he had 11 children with 10 women. No wonder he tried to make a comeback even
though he was 33 years old at the time. If you’re not a Cleveland Browns fan, you
may not realize that quarterback Bernie Kosar remains a beloved legend in the area even
though he last played for the franchise in 1992 and never won a title. He earned a pair of Pro Bowl nods during his
career, and he guided the Browns to three AFC Championship contests, which the Browns
lost each time. After coach Bill Belichick controversially
released Kosar in 1992, the QB caught on with the Dallas Cowboys, where as a backup to Troy
Aikmanhe won the ring that eluded him when he called northeast Ohio home. Kosar has openly spoken about how much money
he lost post-retirement and also about the symptoms he’s suffered due to the concussions
he sustained as a pro. When he filed for bankruptcy in 2009, he had
only $44 in his checking account. None of his off-the-field woes have affected
his popularity in the Cleveland area, though. His name is attached to a restaurant in the
area, and he’s also a fixture on local sports talk radio programs during the football season. “And the camaraderie of family is just so
phenomenal. It’s phenomenal.” Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Grunge videos about your favorite

    I would buy myself a good home for cash and have no loan against it.
    I would put 1/4 of my salary into a trust that can't be touched until I'm 65
    I would put 1/4 of my salary into another trust that pays me out quarterly where I can't withdraw anything extra.
    I would buy long term investments in gold, silver, palladium and other precious metals

    Essentially, other than living off 200-300k a year which is an amazing amount of money, all of my 35-80 million dollar money would be put away

    I was in So California during the mid 70's. I was in a record store one day, there was also a huge black man in an LA Ram's shirt buying $5000 worth of records and another $3000 for his bimbo, I mean girlfriend, who was clinging onto him like wool socks on polyester pants just out of the dryer. Not mentioning his name, but I remember he had just signed a big contract with the Ram's straight out of college. I remember hearing a few years later that he was cut during preseason training camp, and had tried to play in Canada, but wasn't able to pass the fitness test. Then about a year later, I read a story he was broke, his girlfriend was suing him for alimony and child support for three kids. It's sad to note, that most of these guys are black men, all of them seem kind, and generous, to a fault, but they were never given the skills to handle their sudden wealth and couldn't get rid of the leaches who clung onto them. I suspect it's still going on, and in the pro-sports leagues as well.
