Terrell Owens Earned An Estimated $80M In The NFL But Admits He Lost It After Letting People Control His Finances — 'They Just Basically Stole From Me'

One common argument among sports fans is the GOAT (greatest of all time) conversation. When it comes to the NFL, one of the consistent names that comes to mind is former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. However, top-performing players do not start and stop with the leading position. They need wide receivers to throw to, and you can’t ignore Terrell Owens when looking down the history of top-performing athletes at that position. The NFL lists Owens as the No. 6 greatest wide receiver of all time. He had 1,078 receptions, 15,934 yards, and 153 touchdowns during his professional football career. While his high-performing career did not yield him a Super Bowl championship, he was inducted as a 2018 Football Hall of Fame class member. View this post on Instagram A post shared by NFL (@nfl) Terrell Owens, a father of five, had an estimated net worth of $80 million from the height of his career, with most of his earnings coming from on-field play totaling nearly $80 million,...

These 10 Black Athletes Dominate As Professional Team Owners While Remaining Active In Their Respective Sports

For years, there was a disconnect between the representation of athletes playing on the field or courts and those who made the big decisions for the sports industry. As time evolves, more and more Black athletes continue to dominate the world of sports, particularly in the NBA and NFL. According to data from Statista, Black athletes make up over 70% of active NBA players during the 2023 season. For the NFL, Statista further reports that a bit more than 56% of players in 2022 were Black athletes. Although the percentage of Black players is disproportionately lower in other major sports leagues such as the MLB (6.2%) or the NHL (less than 5%), the push and impact of Black players can be felt across the entire sports landscape. The increased diversification throughout sports as an industry, some would argue, necessitated the need for more decision-makers in executive roles — primarily team ownership. In 2002, the barrier was broken as the founder of BET, Robert “Bob” Johnson, became...

What's Shannon Sharpe's Reported Net Worth In 2023?

From deep sports fans to those who simply show up for the watch parties, anyone who’s even adjacent to sports has likely heard of Shannon Sharpe. And if for no other reason, it’s for the coveted yelling of his former co-host’s name, “SKIIIIIIIPPPPP.” The energy behind that exclamation indicates his life’s example — full of joy, fever, and passion.

How Vince Young Wiped Out Over $25M Thanks To His Love For The Cheesecake Factory And Other Spending Habits

An old saying suggests, “life comes at you fast.” And that’s a sentiment that proved to be true for former NFL player Vince Young. Young was a college quarterback standout for the University of Texas Longhorns. He would lead the team to a national championship win over the University of Southern California Trojans in the Rose Bowl in 2006. His collegiate performance on the field led to his drafting as the No. 3 pick to the Tennessee Titans later that year. According to Spotrac, Young’s initial contract with the Titans earned him $25 million. Throughout his career, he would go on to be signed by the Philadelphia Eagles, Buffalo Bills, and Green Bay Packers. During his overall time on the field, he averaged 8,964 passing yards and threw 46 touchdowns. However, it was his time with the Titans that launched him into NFL superstardom. According to Bleacher Report, Young became the first-ever rookie quarterback to rush for over 500 yards, leading the Titans to a record of an 8-8 finish...
