The retired NFL player Jon Dorenbos reportedly has a net worth of $6 million. Dorenbos has amused his fans not only with his footballing skills but also with his magical ones.
Dorenbos had vowed to become a full-time magician after his retirement from the NFL. Even before his retirement, Jon had let the public know about how much he loved showing magic tricks. After all, magic helped him cope with the most tumultuous situation of his life.
Recently, the former Eagles player participated in the show AGT: Fantasy League. The premiere episode aired on January 1 on NBC, with ten all-star acts taking to the stage.
But by the end of the episode, only six acts were to advance to the next stage. And unfortunately, Dorenbos didn’t make it through. The footballer-turned-magician is highly unlikely to be let down by this, and we might soon show off his magic tricks in another show.
Jon Dorenbos Net Worth 2024
Jon Dorenbos net worth doesn’t only stem from his football career. Many might be familiar with his career as a magician and keynote speaker.
A native of Humble, Texas, Dorenbos didn’t have the perfect childhood. His father had murdered his mother, Kathy, when he was only 12. He lived for quite some time in a foster home before being adopted by his uncle and aunt.
Though it was difficult to accept what had happened, Dorenbos powered through in his life. He graduated from UTEP and was drafted as a free agent by the Buffalo Bills in 2003.
Since retiring from football in 2017, Jon Dorenbos reportedly has a net worth of $6 million. During his time, Dorenbos wasn’t the most sought-after player and never received the big-time contracts like some NFL stars.
After retirement, the former long snapper focused on his career as a magician. He participated in shows, and later, he also became a keynote speaker.
He built a career as a successful motivational speaker and used his magic tricks to inspire others. In 2019, he also published a book titled, “Life Is Magic,” and has been invited to several events as a guest to promote and talk about his book.
He has been featured by NBC, HBO, FOX Sports, ESPN, E! True Hollywood Story: An American Story, ABC, and CBS. Several Fortune 500 companies have invited Jon as a keynote speaker to their celebrity-filled events.
In 2020, it was reported that Jon had sold his two-bedroom townhome in Huntington Beach’s guard-gated Seacliff on the Greens for $1.15 million. He purchased the house with his wife Annalise in 2018 for $1.055 million.

But that same season, Dorenbos was waived during the roster cuts, and the contract was terminated. He signed for the Titans and received a similar deal.
In 2006, he re-signed with the Titans, but only for them to release him a few days later. The Eagles picked up Dorenbos from free agency and handed him a two-year contract of $1,095,000.
The Eagles re-negotiated the contract with Jon in 2007 and gave him a revised $4,535,000 contract for five years. During this time, he also made it to the NFC’s Pro Bowl team.

But in 2017, he was traded to the New Orleans Saints for a seventh-round draft pick. Jon could never make an appearance for the Saints after he underwent heart surgery, and on September 9, he announced his retirement.
While having a career as a football player, Jon also appeared in the popular show America’s Got Talent. He wowed the public with his magic tricks and charming nature, which led him to finals. He couldn’t get his hand on the $1 million cash prize but came third.
