Having played in the NFL for 16 seasons, Terrell Owens is a former wide receiver who represented six different franchises during his playing career but made his name with the San Francisco 49ers. Known popularly as T.O., i.e., his initials, Owens was one of the greatest players of his time but was known for both the records he was setting on the field as well as the controversies that he was getting into. The now 45-year-old has six Pro-Bowl selections and five All-Pro first team selections to his name.
An induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2018 is an indicator of the immense career that Terrell Owens had. However, poor financial planning saw him almost go broke in 2011 and his current net worth is estimated at $100,000.
Terrell Owens Salary
Owens was one of the better-paid players in his position, making almost $80 million in cumulative salary earnings. The last contract he had signed was a one-year $925,000 deal with the Seattle Seahawks in August 2012. However, he was released by the organization 20 days later.
The 1996 NFL Draft inductee's biggest paycheck came his way in his final season with the Dallas Cowboys in 2008 where a $12.9 million signing bonus saw his pocket a little over $13.7 million.
Terrell Owens Endorsements
Owing to his notorious reputation and for several controversies both on and off the field, Owens was never offered an endorsement deal during his playing career. It was only after his retirement that Owens was offered a deal by American fast food chains Carl Jr's and Hardee's in 2013. Later on in 2014, the former Philadelphia Eagles star signed a deal with Draftster, a daily sports fantasy platform.
Terrell Owens Charity Work
Back in 2009, Owens was honored by the National Alzheimer's Association with the Young Champions Award for raising awareness about the disease. He has also supported the Andy Roddick Foundation which focuses on improving the standard of living of children by providing them with opportunities, both educational and economic.
