Ronald Powell’s net worth before his death is estimated at $1 million. Powell never became a star in the NFL, and his career was cut short. 

When he was drafted by the Saints in the fifth round in 2014, Powell had signed a four-year $2.3 million contract. The contract included a $168,680 signing bonus and an average annual salary of $597,215. 

But that contract didn’t last long, as the Saints released Powell in 2015. The Chicago Bears signed Powell in 2016 but only to the practice squad.

In December 2016, the Seattle Seahawks signed Powell to their practice squad and later gave him a two-year $1.14 million contract. The deal made sure he earned an average annual salary of $570,000.

But in 2017, Powell was waived by the Seahawks and placed on injured reserve. He was released by the Seahawks a week later. Seahawks was the last team Powell played for in his NFL career. 

In 2018, Powell signed for the AAF team, Orlando Apollos, but such was his fate that he couldn’t build his career even there. Powell had stayed out of the public limelight long before his demise.
