How much is Barry Sanders Worth? by Kenyans247(1): Thu 03, December, 2020 01:32pm
Barry Sanders Net Worth:
$20 Million

Barry Sanders net worth and salary: Barry Sanders is a retired professional American football player who has a net worth of $20 million dollars. A running back, he played his entire career with the Detroit Lions.

Early Life: Barry Sanders was born in 1968 in Wichita, Kansas where he played high school football for Wichita North High School. He played college football for the Oklahoma State Cowboys from 1986 to 1988. In 1988 Sanders had what has been called the greatest individual season in college football history. He led the nation with an average of 7.6 yards per carry and over 200 yards per game, including four games where he rushed for more than 300 yards. He also had 516 yards on special teams. He won the 1988 Heisman Trophy as the best college football player of the season.

Sanders entered the 1989 NFL Draft, forgoing his senior season. He was chosen in the first round with the third overall pick by the Detroit Lions. Barry Sanders spent his entire professional career with the Detroit Lions. He is a member of both the college and NFL football halls of fame, and was ranked by "NFL Top 10" as the most elusive runner in the history of the NFL. He averaged more than 1.500 rushing yards per season and retired in 1998, after an 11 year professional career, just 1,457 yards short of the NFL's all-time rushing record. Sanders was a ten-time Pro-Bowl selection, six-time First Team All-Pro selection, and won multiple MVP and Offensive Player of the Year Awards.

Contracts: In 1989, Barry signed a 5-year $9.5 million contract with the Lions. That the same as around $20 million after adjusting for inflation. In 1997 he signed what was then the largest contract ever paid to a running back, a 6-year, $34.5 million deal that came with a record-smashing $11 million signing bonus. The bonus alone was worth the same as around $18 million in today's dollars. Barry retired unexpectedly just two years into the contract. The Lions sued Barry, demanding that he repay a portion of the signing bonus. A judge eventually sided with The Lions and Barry paid back roughly $7.5 million of the bonus.

Personal Life: Barry was married to former Detroit TV anchor Lauren Campbell from 2000 to 2012. They have three children together.
