Brandon McManus has been in the news for all the wrong reasons this week. The Washington Commanders kicker has been accused of sexual assault by two women for an incident that took place last year during an overseas flight to London when the player was with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

With McManus in the spotlight, fans have been curious to learn more about his salary this year. As per Spotrac, he signed a one-year, $3.6 million contract with the Commanders in March.

His deal includes a $1.5 million signing bonus, and he will receive $1.71 million in base salary in 2024 of which $1.5 million is guaranteed.

Brandon McManus will enter his 11th season in the NFL when he plays for the Commanders in 2024. He has made a small fortune in career earnings.

Spotrac claims that McManus has made $27,366,667 in career earnings. He spent nine seasons with the Denver Broncos and made $25,359,667 before joining the Jaguars in 2023 earning $2 million during a one-year stint.

In 2013, he spent time on the Indianapolis Colts practice squad, where he made $7,000.

McManus went undrafted in the 2013 NFL draft. He was signed on the Colts practice squad later that year but was waived before the season began. Before the 2014 season, the kicker joined the New York Giants practice squad before signing for the Denver Broncos.

McManus helped the Broncos win the Super Bowl in 2015. He left Denver in 2023, to join the Jaguars. After one season in Jacksonville, he signed for the Commanders.

However, just two months after signing with Washington, he has become the NFL's public enemy number one. In a statement this week, the Commanders said:

"Earlier today, we were made aware of the civil lawsuit filed on May 24 against Brandon McManus. We take allegations of this nature very seriously and are looking into the matter. We have been in communication with the League Office and Brandon's representation, and will reserve further comment at this time."

It remains to be seen whether McManus will be able to play for Washington in 2024 amid a sexual allegation lawsuit against him.
