Brian Bosworth net worth and wages: Brian Bosworth is a former professional football player and performer that has a net worth of $8 Million. Also called “The Boz”, Brian first came to national attention as school player for Oklahoma under coach Barry Switzer. He was an associate of the first-team All American squad in both 85 and 86. Boz was prohibited from college football after failing a steroid drug test so he entered the auxiliary NFL draft in 1987. Sadly, Boz ended up playing only two seasons in the NFL after enduring a career-ending shoulder injury. In 1993, Bosworth received $7 million from an NFL insurance policy, which will be equivalent to approximately $11.5 million after correcting for inflation today. On top of that, the $7 million was totally tax free! Brian Bosworth did figure out how to make several clever moves off the field. When Bosworth openly discussed rubbish about the Denver quarterback John Elway, 10,000 Denver enthusiasts purchased $15 t shirts that read, “PROHIBIT THE BOZ.” Paradoxically, those T shirts were made by Bosworth’s business! Since that time, The Boz has appeared in numerous television shows, advertisements and films. Among his first roles was the 1991 low budget film, Stone Cold. More recently he appeared in “The Longest Yard” and a advertisement for Dish Network.
