Peyton Manning became a two-time Super Bowl champion in the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl this year after the Denver Broncos beat the North Carolina Panthers.
One of the most famous quarter back’s in present time, Manning is not only a successful football player; he’s also made a name for himself through several high-profile endorsements. The combination of the two has helped to accrue more than just an impressive career in the NFL- Manning is loaded.
Find out how much Peyton Manning is worth in 2018 after his second Super Bowl win.
Drafted as first-round pick in 1998’s NFL draft, Manning began his career by signing a $48 million contract which was sweetened by a $11.8 million signing bonus.
In 2004, Manning was a part of NFL history after the Colt’s offered him a $98 million extension and a $34.5 million signing bonus– which was double the previous highest signing bonus before it.
According to Forbes, the Colts would pay Manning a total of $173.6 million in the 14 years he was on the team.
In 2011 alone, they paid him a compensation of $26.4 million.
Though Manning would have to take a $4 million pay cut when he would eventually join the Broncos, the team he won his second Super Bowl with, football was never the only revenue Manning has had to rely on.
Manning has been a master at endorsements his entire career. Forbes said in 2018 that Manning leads the NFL with most money generated off-field, earning $12 million in additional earnings.
A lot of these earnings come from smart endorsement contracts; Manning had a 12-year contract endorsing Reebok. Though he would eventually leave Reebok to sign with Nike, sneakers aren’t the only partner companies Manning has worked with.
Manning also has had high-profile contracts with Sony, DirectTV, Nationwide and Gatorade. Endorsements aside, Manning has invested in 21 Papa Johns in the Colorado area in 2012. After winning the Super Bowl, Manning made headlines for his first post-game kiss being Papa John himself.
Manning has some of the highest-earning power in the league. By just uttering to media outlets that he would be drinking Budweiser after his 2018 Super Bowl win, he reportedly gave the company $3.2 million in free advertising.
Thanks to all of this cash flow, Manning has been able to lead a lavish lifestyle. His latest house in Denver is a $4.75 million mansion complete with seven bedrooms and ten baths.
