Lawrence Taylor Net Worth: Lawrence Taylor is a former American professional football player who has a net worth of $100 thousand. Born in Williamsburg, Virginia, in 1959, Lawrence Taylor played college football at the University of North Carolina. The New York Giants drafted the All-American with the second pick of the 1981 NFL Draft. Taylor is a ten-time Pro Bowler and a ten-time All-Pro. He was part of two Super Bowl-winning teams (XXI, XXV), and won NFL MVP honors in 1986. Taylor was named the AP's NFL Defensive Player of the Year three times. Taylor was placed on the NFL's 1980s All-Decade Team and the league's 75th Anniversary All-Time Team. He came in third on the list of the 100 Greatest Players in the NFL. Taylor finished his career with the New York Giants in 1993, amassing 1,088 tackles, 132.5 sacks, and nine interceptions as an outside linebacker. He became a first-ballot Hall of Famer in 1999. Taylor's off-the-field lifestyle has come under significant scrutiny. In the late '80s, he was suspended from the game after two positive drug tests. He kept his addiction under control throughout the last five years of his playing career, but returned to drug use after his 1993 retirement. Taylor also worked in sports TV after retiring, serving as an analyst on "TNT Sunday Night Football" and even wrestling at WrestleMania XI. He appeared in "Any Given Sunday", "The Waterboy", "The Sopranos", "Mercy Streets", and "In Hell". Lawrence Taylor's retirement has been difficult to say the least. LT has faced statutory rape allegations, cocaine addiction, bad investments and tax evasion that have left the linebacker broke today. In 2011, Taylor faced charges for third-degree statutory rape for allegedly having sex with a minor. After pleading guilty, Taylor received a six-year probation sentence. He currently lives in Florida with his third wife.
