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.

He Earned An Estimated $80M Fortune, Then Terrell Owens Lost It All — But Here Are The Lessons He Learned

At the height of his career, NFL star Terrell Owens was worth $80 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. The outlet estimates Owens “earned a bit under $67 million in salary alone” and “approximately $13 million on top of that from endorsements” when he was playing with teams like the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys alone, in fact, signed him to a blockbuster three-year, $25 million deal in March 2006, and quickly became known for being the “bad boy” of the field, flagrantly ignoring the advice of coaches and doctors alike in his pursuit of success. Things once got so bad for the NFL star that he was even fined more than $100,000 for “excessive celebrations” of his various wins. However, thanks to a series of bad financial decisions — and even a suicide attempt — Terrell Owens was completely broke by 2011. Today, Celebrity Net Worth estimates he’s worth about $500,000. Recently, however, he sat down with Insider to give financial advice about the things he learned after looking back...

Former NFL Players Jay Barnett & Terrell Owens Team Up To Tackle America's Mental Health Crisis

Here’s to breaking the stigma when it comes to Black men and mental health. Ahead of World Mental Health Day on Oct. 10, former NFL player turned therapist Jay Barnett — a survivor of two suicide attempts — has doubled down on his commitment to changing the narrative when it comes to Black men and their mental health. “ It wasn’t until after football that I realized I needed help. I hid behind football for a number of years. I was a free agent back in 2006, and I bounced around trying to find a place to stick and I couldn’t,” Barnett told AfroTech exclusively. “After working out for the Packers and before training camp, I went to play in the Arena League. I discovered that my desire to play was from an unhealthy place. I wanted to play because I wanted to prove to my father I could be everything that he wasn’t. Football was how I coped and when I couldn’t play — I felt useless.” To help others get the help they need, Barnett recently teamed up to moderate an open conversation...
