According to Spotrac, the professional athlete has made $103,215,972 in career earnings throughout his 15 seasons in the NFL. However, a report by The Athletic in 2019 revealed that Peterson was being sued for allegedly defaulting on a $5.2 million loan, which was being used to pay off other debts.

While this doesn’t necessarily mean that Peterson is “broke” or has a net worth as low as reported, investment fraud attorney Chase Carlson, reported that the running back was taken advantage of financially. Regardless, Peterson has a boxing match on July 30 against another NFL running back in Le’Veon Bell, where both players could be signed by an NFL team after their match.

Peterson is a future first ballot hall of famer when he decides to retire, but it’s still very possible a team could sign him for the upcoming 2022 NFL season.

At the age of 37, it’s rare for a running back of his age to still be playing in the NFL, especially when you consider the physicality of the position and the amount of impact running bans constantly endure. But with Peterson’s illustrious NFL career, it still may be too early to count him out.
