Brian Dawkins Net Worth $18 Million
Brian Dawkins spent his childhood in his hometown, where he attended Jacksonville William M. Raines High School, where he began playing football, as well as basketball. However, upon matriculation in 1992, he enrolled at Clemson University in South Carolina, and decided to pursue a career in football, beginning with the college team. He was named a Sportingnews All-American, and received First-Team All-ACC Honors, among many others sports honors.
He entered the 1996 NFL Draft, and was selected by the Philadelphia Eagles as the 61st overall pick, which marked the beginning of his professional career, and of his net worth. In his first season, he replaced Eric Zomalt in the free safety position and played in 14 games, 13 of which were starts. He recorded 75 tackles, three interceptions and one sack. In the second season he kept the same numbers, in 15 games this time. In his third season he had 55 tackles, 1.0 sack and two interceptions, and continued to play successfully for the Eagles until 2008, recording impressive numbers, and increasing his net worth during the same time. In the 2002, he became the first player to record a touchdown reception, a sack, an interception and forced fumble in a single game. Thanks to his successful plays, he earned a seven year long contract extension, which added a substantial amount to his net worth.
Unfortunately, he and the rest of the Eagles could only reach the Super Bowl on one occasion, in 2004, when they narrowly lost to the New England Patriots 24 to 21. In 2008 his contract expired, and soon he became a part of the Denver Broncos, signing a contract worth $17 million over five years, which increased his net worth to a large degree. His first season with the Broncos became the best of his entire career, recording 116 tackles, once forced fumble and two interceptions. Unfortunately he became injury prone, and in 2012 announced his retirement, but before that, he signed a one-day contract with the Eagles and during halftime in the game against the New York Giants, the Eagles retired Brian`s jersey no. 20. His career was officially over.
Following a period as an analyst, most recently Brian returned to the revered club as the Football Operations Executive, with the focus on helping player development.
Speaking about his personal life, Brian Dawkins has been married to Connie Kerrin since July of 1994; the couple has four children. Their current residence is in Voorhees Township, New Jersey.
