Jeremy Charles Shockey Net Worth
Jeremy Charles Shockey (b. August 18th 1980, Ada, Oklahoma) is an American football player best known for playing tight end for the New York Giants, New Orleans Saints, and Carolina Panthers of the National Football League (NFL). Shockey earned two Super Bowl championships while with Giants and Saints respectively and also four Pro Bowl selections as well as three All Pro selections over his long and impressive NFL career – amassing a net worth estimated to exceed $15 Million dollars at present.
Shockey immediately established himself in the NFL upon his debut, receiving the inaugural Diet Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Year grant and being selected to four consecutive Pro Bowls (2002, 2003, 2005 and 2006). His aggressive style proved pivotal to New York Giants’ hostile passing offense as well as being integral on offenses across the country.
Shockey parlayed his success in the NFL into a lucrative contract with the Miami Dolphins that paid out more than $45.1 million over two years and became the highest paid tight end at that time.
Shockey then enjoyed an outstanding sophomore campaign, setting both Giants single-season receiving record and NFL single-season reception record of 60 receptions. These achievements led to him earning another Pro Bowl selection as top offensive player; unfortunately in December game against Redskins he broke his leg, ending his season and severely hampering their chances at winning another Super Bowl championship.
Shockey left the New York Giants in 2008 to join the Saints, where he played two seasons before retiring in 2011. At his professional retirement he amassed 547 receptions for 6,143 yards and 37 touchdowns – an impressive career accomplishment!
After retiring, Shockey has engaged in several business endeavors since leaving football. These include partnerships with Gatorade, ownership and operation of The Spot restaurant in his hometown Ada Oklahoma as well as his signature footwear line “Jeremy Shockey Signature Footwear”.
Shockey keeps himself busy both professionally and personally with family life – his marriage to Daniela Cortazar began in 2012, and they have two children together. Even with all his other endeavors, Jeremy remains an exceptional father for his two kids and the couple remain happy in life together. Shockey serves as a true inspiration to young men and women everywhere: his hard work has enabled him to achieve so much throughout his career – we wish him only success in future endeavours!
