Boomer Esiason Net Worth is $15 Million (as of 2020)
Boomer Esiason net worth is currently estimated at $15 million dollar. During his prime years as American football quarterback Boomer, real name Norman Julius, has played in the National Football League (NFL) for teams like Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals. His career in NFL lasted for 14 years and during this time the athlete has earned more than 20 million dollars. However, as so many other footballers, Boomer did not save or invest much of this income. In fact, this have been clearly stated by Boomer himself: „ I made 22 million in 14 years… with taxes, and travel and everything else, it gets blown out the window… which is why I still need to work.“ After retirement he started working as football analyst and as for the day, this job is the main source of Boomer Easton net worth. In the following paragraphs we will discuss his career and income in greater detail. Plus, we will tell you how Boomer used his fortune to help increase the life expectancy of people who have been diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF), an incurable genetic disorder which has affected his son.

Before we start, let me tell you how the athlete got the nick name he is known by till this day. Apparently, the would-be millionaire was already a tuff guy while still in his mother’s womb and kept kicking day and night. Hence, she gave him a nickname before the baby was even born. Norman felt like the nickname really suits his personality and kept it not only through his childhood, but also as a Professional football quarterback. Now speaking about football, Boomer started developing his skills while still at high school. However, this was not the only sport he played back in the day: Eason was a three-sport varsity player in football, basketball, and baseball. After graduation from high school he started playing for University for Maryland, this time football only. Boomer Easton net worth started to grow as he was drafted by Cincinnati Bengals, in 1984. He remained with this team for eight years, the most successful and important period in his career. While with Bengals, Eason earned his most important awards, including 3 Pro Bow and UPI AFC Player of the Year.
Now as I have already mentioned, Boomer Eason net worth, or to be more particular – Boomer Eason Foundation (to which he contributed himself), is responsible for the fact that over less than decade the life expectancy of people with cystic fibrosis has increased from 20 to 40 years. This also means better prospects for Gunnar, his sun, who was diagnosed with CF at the age 2. In one of his interviews the athlete has said: „My goal is for Gunnar to outlive me. That’s the way it should be. My dream is for him to be a dad himself one day, so he can find out all the anxiety that kids bring to their dads.“
