Folks with a deep affinity for football are likely aware that Shannon Sharpe is considered to be one of the greatest tight ends of all time. Throughout the trajectory of Shannon’s career on the field, he made history as the first tight end to earn more than 1,000 receiving yards. In total, he ended his career with 62 touchdowns and 815 receptions for a whopping 1,060 yards.

Not to mention, Shannon has won three Superbowl titles in his career.

Shannon Sharpe’s net worth is pretty cushy.

According to Celebrity Net Worth, Shannon is currently working with a net worth of $14 million. This figure reflects his career as a former NFL player with the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens along with being a sports analyst.

Shannon currently co-hosts Skip and Shannon: Undisputed with sports columnist Skip Bayless on Fox Sports. The 54-year-old also has his own podcast Club Shay Shay, has served as a columnist and spokesperson for FitnessRX For Me Magazine, and co-hosts Sirius NFL Radio's morning show Opening Drive.

Given Shannon’s extensive career on-and-off the field, it makes sense why he’s amassed such a generous net worth.

Sources told the outlet that Fox Sports and Shannon have reached an undisclosed buyout agreement. There is no news on whether the frequent tension between the men — from Shannon’s friendship with Lebron James to Skip’s insensitive comments about Damar Hamlin — caused Shannon to part ways with the network.
