Rob Gronkowski is undoubtedly one of the best success stories in the NFL. The iconic tight end has had a championship career both on and off the pitch and his current net worth should speak for itself. Today we’re going to talk about Rob Gronkowski’s net worth in 2020.
Gronk is reported to start the new decade with a net worth of $40 million. Not bad for a 30-year old who still has a few more years of professional football in him.
The New York native was drafted by the New England Patriots in 2010 where he had a very successful nine-year stint. In his almost-decade long career with the Pats, Gronkowski raked up quite the silverware – four First-Team All-Pro selections, a handful of Pro Bowl appearances and of course three shiny Lombardi trophies. In nine years in Foxborough, the tight end has earned more than $53 million dollars in salaries which he has reportedly untouched, to this day.
Though his initial contract money (which was reportedly just at $24.7 million) was a bit underwhelming for a superstar like Gronkowski, extra signing bonuses and incentives in his contract helped the tight end double that cash. And, a majority of this $53 million career earnings remain to be in tact up to this point.
“I saved it all throughout my whole career, which is very nice,” Gronkowski told FOX Business Network in September 2019. “I’m in a great place and that’s where I wanted to be. I mean, I’ve just been told throughout that the NFL is not for long.”
Gronk has proven time and time again that his portfolio game is just as strong as his gridiron play. He saved all his NFL contract earnings and simply relied on his endorsement deals to cover all his expenses. That wasn’t going to be too hard given that he had huge endorsement deals with major brands like Nike, Dunkin’ Donuts, T-Mobile, Visa and Monster Energy to name a few.
After nine very successful years with Tom Brady and the Patriots, the tight end announced his early retirement at a young age of 29 citing that the numerous injuries he has suffered in his professional career had already taken a toll on his mental health. But, life after football wasn’t going to dull for the three-time champion.
He continued on his thrifty journey outside the NFL and invested in different companies like Gronk Fitness Products – his very own training product brand. He also served as an NFL analyst for Fox Sports and even signed a deal with the WWE which included hosting duties for WrestleMania 36.
Oh, and did we mention that he was also crowned as WWE 24/7 champion? Add that to the trophy cabinet, Gronk.
After a quick year off from the NFL, Gronkowski decided to return to professional football in the spring of 2020 to reunite with longtime Patriots partner Tom Brady in Florida as they were both signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. With his return to the NFL, Gronk’s career earnings is set to immediately increase by at least $10 million as he suits up on his first year in Tampa Bay. That’s another eight-digit deposit to his already massive savings account.
Nonetheless, that’s Rob Gronkowski’s net worth in 2020.
