Peyton Manning’s Net Worth: $250 Million

With nearly two decades of NFL salaries, Manning made most of his income playing football. His highest NFL salary was $18 million, though he made over $40 million some years thanks to his various endorsements. Even now that he’s retired, he still earns over $10 million a year from his endorsement deals alone.

Peyton Manning’s Career Highlights

Manning joined the NFL in 1998 when he was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts. In 2006, he got his first Super Bowl victory against the Chicago Bears; he made it to the Super Bowl once again in 2009, but unfortunately, his team lost to the New Orleans Saints. Setbacks kept coming Manning’s way, as he had a neck injury that forced him to sit out the entire 2011 season and resulted in a trade to the Broncos football team. But Manning got back into action the next year with Denver, and in 2016, he won his final Super Bowl.

Peyton Manning’s Endorsements

Peyton Manning was ranked as the highest earner from licensing deals with the NFL in 2019 — even though he had been retired since 2016. He reportedly earned $3.35 million just from marketing and royalties from video games, apparel and trading cards in 2019.

However, that total does not account for Manning’s personal endorsements. He’s partnered up with ESPN, Sony, Reebok, DirecTV and more, and these deals earn him $25 million a year.

Manning has given back much of his earnings through various philanthropic acts, including donating 30,000 pounds of supplies during Hurricane Katrina. He also founded the Peyback Foundation to help support disadvantaged kids. So far, the charity has provided more than $15 million in grants to children in need.
