Troy Aikman is best known for his time as the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys from 1989 to 2000. He was the number one draft pick when he was claimed by the Dallas Cowboys in 1989, winning three Super Bowls and named the Super Bowl XXVII MVP. Aikman’s present net worth is estimated to be $25 million.
Aikman spent his entire football career with the Dallas Cowboys, and only stopped playing in 2000 to retire with the mass wealth he had accrued by that point. As a result of his hard work, tireless performance, and passion for football, Aikman was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2006 and the College Football Hall of Fame on December 9, 2008 in New York City.
Since Aikman retired, he has pursued many outlets that allow him to be involved with sports, but without playing. In 2001, he participated in Fox’s NFC telecasts as a color commentator. The next year, he moved to the network’s lead crew with Joe Buck and Cris Collinsworth. His work with the program earned him an Emmy Award nomination in 2004. He has also helped broadcast four Super Bowls (XXXIX, XLII, XLV and XLVIII) to date.
Additonally, Aikman hosts a weekly radio show on Thursdays with Sporting News Radio, along with making appearances each week on the Dunham & Miller morning show on Dallas sports talk radio station 1310 The Ticket.
Nowadays, Aikman works as a television sportscaster for Fox Network, and he is the partner/spokeman for IDLife. He was married to former Cowboys publicist Rhonda Worthey on April 8, 2000, in Plano, Texas. Rhonda had a daughter from a previous marriage, and the couple had two daughters together. They separated at the beginning of 2011, and were divorced by April the same year.
