Top 10 Richest NFL Players of All Time

between salary cap hits statistical


playoff performance and award voting

there are plenty of ways to see how nfl

players stack up against one another

however regardless of how everyone does

on the field

fathered time is undefeated when careers

are all said and done

there remains one stat that matters most

of all

how much is in each player's bank

account here are the 10 richest nfl

players of all time

brett favre a hundred million dollars

as jordan love gets ready to replace

aaron rodgers

it's hard not to see this story go full


brett favre was of course the starting

quarterback for the green bay packers

for roughly 15 years

before the team drafted rogers late in

the first round

favre eventually would move on to the

new york jets and minnesota vikings

before retiring for the final time when

he hung up his cleats

favre held the all-time career record

for passing yards and passing touchdowns

while those records have since been

broken farv remains one of the biggest

names in football

and has a massive endorsement deal with


the three-time ap nfl mvp made close to

140 million dollars over his career

and was inducted into the pro football

hall of fame in 2016.

now that his focus is entirely on

business ventures

farv has had financial success that

mirrors his time on the gridiron

known in his football career for

longevity it looks like he's building

the same thing in the financial industry

aaron rodgers 120 million dollars

after the green bay packers selected

utah state quarterback jordan love in

the first round

it's fair to wonder how many seasons the

great aaron rodgers has left with the


for now though he's been the starter in

green bay for over a decade

and consistently been considered one of

the best quarterbacks in the league

he used that celebrity to earn over 230

million dollars in salary

and sign multi-million dollar

endorsement deals with droves of

companies like state farm insurance

a two-time first-team all-pro and

two-time mvp

rogers has been selected to eight pro

bowls and if not for a couple of serious


you'd have been selected to 10. we've

seen other players like brady and

manning move on to new organizations to

choose out their careers

and it'll be interesting to see if

rogers chooses to follow that path

or is willing to hang up his cleats

instead drew brees

120 million dollars brees has been in

the league so long

most fans have probably forgotten about

his tenure with the san diego chargers

but after a promising start to his

career was halted by an injury

the chargers decided to draft philip

rivers and let brees walk in the free


where he signed with the new orleans

saints there's no doubt the big easy has

been happy to welcome brees to the


as the city dealt with the fallout from

hurricane katrina

brees played a pivotal role in bringing

the saints to football relevance

and brought the franchise to its first

super bowl victory in 2009

already 41 years old it's fair to wonder

how much

brees has left in the tank but his play

the past few seasons has continued to

rank among the league's best

before it's all said and done he'll have

made over a quarter billion dollars in


and he'll get to pair that with a ton of

the largest endorsement deals in sports

and you have the makings of one of the

richest players in football history

russell wilson 135 million dollars

easily the youngest player on our list

wilson may be in the better position


anyone in league history at this point

in his life

still just 31 years old the seattle

seahawks star has led his team to a pair

of super bowl appearances

including a victory over peyton manning

in the denver broncos

while the seahawks were known for the

legion of boom on defense in his early


wilson is the uncontested centerpiece of

the franchise now

the quarterback is already worth 135

million dollars

from june of 2018 to july of 2019

wilson earned over 90 million from

endorsements and business ventures alone

tack on his record-setting 140 million

dollar extension and you can see how

wilson rocketed onto this list

the crazier part is wilson will be due

for another contract in a couple of


after players like dak prescott desean


and patrick mahomes reset the

quarterback market even higher

no one would be surprised if in a few

years wilson is bringing in

45 mil a year from football alone

john elway 145 million dollars

born into a football family john elway's


jack was a collegiate head coach for

over 15 years

but john took the family's fortune to

another level

much like eli manning a couple decades

later elway would

leverage his way to force a trade out of

an undesirable situation in indianapolis

with the colts

elway ended up with the denver broncos

and spent his entire 16-year career in

the mile-high city

culminating a pair of super bowl


like many of his peers on the list

before he hung up his cleats

elway put himself into the conversation

as one of the greatest quarterbacks in

league history

however in a unique twist elway ended up

returning to the broncos organization

in a different capacity instead of

contributing on the field

elway has served as the team's general

manager and president of football

operations since

2011. as the person in charge of the

team's football decision making

elway helped deliver an additional title

to denver in 2016.

none of his super bowl rings have been

the largest suppliers of his wealth


instead outside business ventures

including a series of car dealerships

that he sold for 67.5 million dollars

back in 1997

make up the majority of his 145 million

dollar net worth

eli manning 150 million dollars

the manning family is football royalty

and it should not shock anyone that the

youngest brother in the family's long

line of quarterbacks joins this list

while eli was never the same caliber

player as his older brother payton

he took advantage of the favorable

circumstances around him

drafted with the first overall pick by

the san diego chargers in the 2004 nfl


eli used the leverage his brother and

father had built in the nfl to force a

trade to the new york giants

for the next 16 seasons manning started

for the most popular football team in

the biggest market in american sports

a four-time pro bowler manning was never

an elite regular season quarterback

but when it mattered most he rose to the


winning two super bowl mvps against tom


and the new england patriots he turned

his strong performance and clutch

moments into massive contracts that paid

him just over a quarter of a billion

dollars in his career

combine that with substantial

endorsement contracts with companies

like nike

directv and gatorade you've built one of

the strongest financial portfolios of

any former player tom brady

180 million dollars long time new

england patriots quarterback tom brady

recently signed a lucrative 50 million

dollar contract

to take his talents to tampa bay and

join the buccaneers

while he has long been one of the

highest paid players in football

his wealth is dwarfed in comparison to

his wife

gisele brady has a net worth of around

400 million dollars

over double the value of her husband of


tom's 180 million dollar valuation ain't

too shabby either

over his career brady has earned over

200 million dollars in salary

and has always been a highly desirable

endorsement candidate

brady seems persistent on playing pro

football into his mid-40s

and a few more seasons as one of the

highest paid players in the league

will only help grow his wealth


as lucrative as brady's career has been

he's never been the highest paid player

in the nfl

at any one time still his longevity as

one of the premium quarterbacks in a

league desperate for quality quarterback


has long ensured him annually making

upwards of 20 million dollars a year

steve young 200 million dollars

one of the most exciting quarterbacks of

the 1990s

young had one of the shortest but

explosive stretches of play in

nfl history after stints with the usfl

and the tampa bay buccaneers

young replaced all-time great joe

montana as the san francisco 49ers

starter in 1991.

over the next eight seasons young was

selected to

seven pro bowls won a pair of mvp awards

and was a three-time first team all-pro

sadly for the 49ers a series of

concussions forced

young to retire before his career ran

its course

young comes from a family famous outside

the field of sports

his great great great grandfather

brigham young

was the second president of the church

of latter-day saints

and is the namesake for the very

university young attendant

byu young co-founded an equity company

in 2007

where he still serves as the managing

director and he remains on staff at espn

appearing on nfl live as an analyst all

that put together has made young one of

the richest players in nfl history

peyton manning 200 million dollars

i told you the mannings were football

royalty right

and just like the royalty in any kingdom

the mannings sure have plenty of gold

the first overall pick in the 1998 nfl

draft had an

18-year career primarily with the

indianapolis costs

before joining the denver broncos the

future hall of famer finished his career

with a pair of super bowl victories

and numerous all-time passing records


no doubt that manning established

himself as one of the greatest

quarterbacks in nfl history

still once he stepped away from the

field that did not stop the cash from

flowing in

according to forbes the year after

manning retired

he made 150 million dollars from


he's become the host of payton's place a

show on espn

and he has plenty of revenue streams

from off the screen as well

he owns dozens of papa john's franchises

and has

numerous other investments he reportedly

turned down an

opportunity to host espn's monday night

football crew

but will have numerous opportunities to

enter the broadcast booth if he ever

wants to go that route in the future

either way there's plenty of reason to

believe the 44 year old

has an empire destined for even bigger


roger staubach 600 million dollars

you probably were not expecting to see

an old-time legend on this list

but long-time cowboys quarterback roger


tops the list staubach was the signal

caller for america's team

through the entirety of the 1970s and

was a part of multiple super bowl

championship runs

yet at 37 staubach decided to hang up

his cleats even

after leading the league and pass a

raiding and taking the cowboys to the


of course it makes it easier to step

away from the gridiron if you have a


financial enterprise waiting for you


recent stars staubach made most of his

money after he hung up his cleats

as his career was coming to a close

starback created a real estate company

that is boomed into a multi-million

dollar business

in 2008 after owning the company for

over 30 years

it was sold for 613 million dollars

his successful business ventures have

combined with lucrative sponsorship

deals to form a foundation for an

incredibly large financial empire

so what would you guys do if you had all

this cash

and do you think any other quarterbacks

are gonna make it into this list anytime
