Matt Hasselbeck Net Worth $18 Million
Matt Hasselbeck was brought up with two younger brothers Tim and Nathanael in Boulder, but his father Don Hasselbeck played football in the position of tight end for the New England Patriots. Thus, at a very young age Hasselbeck showed interest in football, at Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood, Massachusetts, where he played for the high school team, and thanks to his skills, in senior year he was named by “USA Today” as an honorable mention All-American. He then enrolled at Boston College, from which he graduated with a degree in Marketing. Side by side with education, Hasselbeck continued playing football for the Boston College Eagles in the position of the starting quarterback, which would later hold his brother Tim, then his professional career began in 1998 with the NFL Draft, as he was selected by the Green Bay Packers as 187th round overall. Although he didn’t see much playing time while at Green Bay, as he was only a backup quarterback to Brett Favre, his overall net worth started extending.
In 2001, Hasselbeck was traded to the Seattle Seahawks, where he stayed until the end of the 2010 season. While playing for the team, he managed to record three Pro-Bowl appearances, in 2003, 2005, and 2007. He was also a NFC Champion with the team in 2005, and leading the team to the Super Bowl that season; however, they lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2005, Matt was also named as passing touchdown leader for the NFC division, and was selected for the All-First NFC team for the season.
Thanks to his great performance, Hasselbeck earned a new contract with the Seattle Seahawks, which prolonged his stay with the team until 2010, and certainly increased his net worth. After the 2010 season, Hasselbeck’s contract expired, and he couldn’t agree with the managers for an extension, which eventually resulted in his departure from the team.
However, Hasselbeck soon found a new engagement, as he signed a three year contract with the Tennessee Titans worth of $21 million, further increasing his net worth. Two years later, Hasselbeck was released by the Tennessee Titans, as his game performance had declined, but soon enough he found a new club, signing a two year deal with the Indianapolis Colts for which he currently plays, worth $7.25 million, and has he signed a contract renewal for one year in 2015.
If to talk about his personal life, Matt Hasselbeck married Sarah Egnaczyk, his childhood sweetheart, in 2000, and with whom he has three children. He is active in free time on his official Twitter account.
