It’s disgusting for Albert Haynesworth to be included with the rest of the people in this article, he was nothing more than a locker room cancer and his bank account reflects the stupidity and deep pocket attitude of Dan Snyder, owner of the Washington Redskins.
Jerry Richardson spent his 1959 NFL championship bonus on the first ever Hardee’s franchise and 35 years later controlled more than 2,500 restaurants and 100,000 employees. In 1993, Richardson became owner of the expansion Carolina Panthers and today boasts a reported net worth of more than $500M
Nice Overview of how it can be done! Thanks!
Larry Fitzgerald “was honored as MVP at the Super Bowl in 2009.” Santonio Holmes might have something to say about that statement.
The L A Rams offered most of the 1954 rookies a “non negotiable” $5000/year contract. and contained many restrictions. The rumored salary of then RAM football greats at that time such as Elroy Hersh. Bob Waterfield, and other notables was said to be in the “twenties”. Johnny Unitas played “semi-pro ” in 1954-55 for the “love of the game” . He was “paid” by his share of donations by the crowd; usually less than $10.00. Television has sure made the difference.
Jerry Richardson is a major omission from this list.
Did anyone other else notice that they didn’t include that John Madden was, umm, kind of , a COACH!!!????

A lot of money doesn’t preclude one from being a jerk. And believe me, there are a lot of jerks in professional sports.
