Terry Bradshaw has accumulated around $45 million of net worth over his career as an NFL player and broadcaster.

He had a legendary playing career. In the 1970s, he was the starting quarterback for the Pittsburgh Steelers' dynasty. With them, he won four Super Bowls, making him the first quarterback to do so. He was also the Super Bowl MVP in the last two of those victories. In 1978, he was also named NFL MVP.

Despite his success on the field, his NFL earnings did not contribute significantly to his net worth. Players were not compensated as well as they are now when he was playing. During his first year with the Steelers, he had to work as a used-car salesman.

Much of Terry Bradshaw's net worth came away from the field

After his retirement from the game in 1984, he joined CBS as an analyst and became a studio analyst in 1990. Since 1994, Terry Bradshaw has been part of the Fox stable and regularly appears on our screens on Sunday Night Football. He has won three Sports Emmy awards for his career on the screen.

In addition to his playing and broadcasting career, he has been involved in business ventures over the years. He sold peanut butter using his name and image. He has also written five books and recorded six gospel albums. He has appeared in many movies as well.

Terry Bradshaw had two main career goals: win multiple Super Bowls and cut a gospel album with a guy who had a dead raccoon on his head.

Since early 2000s, he has been involved in the world of NASCAR. Since 2020, he has ventured into the distillery industry by launching the Terry Bradshaw Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a collaboration with Silver Screen Bottling Company.

In addition to such ventures, he has taken a keen interest in real estate and the private jets market. His real estate ventures were not particularly successful. It is said that he made a net loss of $1 million during his time flipping houses. The main reason for the loss was the collapse of the housing market in the financial crisis of 2008. However, he did not concede any regret for having gone into those ventures.

Where he has been more successful is in flipping private jets. He buys private jets and sells them to potential owners for profit. His latest muse is the Lear 40XR, which he claims to own because it gives him a larger headspace.

Why Terry Bradshaw flips $5 million planes the way some people flip houses

Over the years, Terry Bradshaw has amassed a significant fortune. Most of that has come from his broadcasting career and his other business ventures rather than what he achieved when playing in the NFL.
