How much is Antonio Brown worth?




Scandal-embroiled NFL free agent Antonio Brown was once one of the "world's highest-paid athletes" and ranked among Forbes' 30 under 30.

But 2019, and even so far in 2020, has not been kind to the wide receiver, who was at one time the highest-paid NFL athlete to play that position, Forbes reported.

Brown, 31, was the 24th highest-paid athlete, globally, in 2017, when he was worth an estimated $31.9 million, according to the outlet. The father of four also raked in approximately $2.5 million that same year, from sponsorships with Facebook, Nike and Pepsi, the outlet reported.

Brown then signed a $15 million contract with the New England Patriots, but the team released him in September after a second woman in 10 days accused him of sexual misconduct. He played just one game with the team.

Marketwatch estimated he was only paid roughly $158,000 before he was released.

Despite that, the contract included a $10 million guarantee, Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reported Brown's behavior nullified that portion of the deal.

Brown is now trying to recover at least $30 million he was allegedly guaranteed by the Oakland Raiders.

Steve Belichick, the 32-year-old son of legendary Patriots coach Bill Belichick, has emerged as one of the team's most important assistant coaches in recent years, prompting some to wonder whether Steve Belichick and not Josh McDaniels will become the eventual in-house heir to Bill. Henry McKenna of USA Today recently took a close look at the younger Belichick, including the obvious questions raised when a son of a coach is perceived to receive unfair advantages in an industry that is commonly criticized for lacking diversity.
