Israel Idonije Net Worth

Israel Idonije spent 10 years terrorizing opposing offensive lines in the NFL. Now, as a former Chicago Bears defensive end he is spearheading something completely different: creating an impact house to unite grantors, entrepreneurs and innovators in Chicago’s Loop area – scheduled to open March 2020 at 200 W Madison in Multi-Employer Property Trust’s 45-story building 200 W Madison.

Idonije was born in Lagos, Nigeria and moved with his family to Brandon, Manitoba when he was four. At Vincent Massey High School he initially disliked football but eventually agreed to participate after his coach Kevin Grindey convinced him otherwise – this allowed Idonije to develop his abilities further and lead their Vanier Cup championship victory team.

Once Idonije graduated from the University of Manitoba, he was signed by Cleveland Browns but later released. That following year he signed to Winnipeg Blue Bombers practice squad before later being picked up by Ottawa Renegades of Canadian Football League although never actually playing a game for them.

Idonije published The Protectors through his publishing company Athlitacomics in 2012. Set in the future and featuring athletes who discover super powers that help save humanity. After creating what he called its “Bible,” he brought in writer Ron Marz and illustrator Bart Sears to bring it all to life. Six issues were published through Athlitacomics before its trade paperback edition was recently completed.

Idonije earned a stellar reputation during his NFL tenure for being one of the most versatile and aggressive defensive players. A master at both nose tackle and pass rusher positions, he amassed 283 total tackles, 29 sacks and six fumble recoveries before retiring in 2013 with Detroit Lions.

Idonije has established iF Charities as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to serving communities in Winnipeg, Chicago and West Africa. Through numerous programs and projects each year, the foundation strives to assist these areas of need.

Idonije has proven his worth as an invaluable member of the Giants meeting room and could make for an effective short-term contract option. His teammates value having him around, especially with younger players like Corey Wootton and Shea McClellin coming along. Although Idonije knows his days may soon come to an end, Giants should do their best to keep him as long as possible.
