Tony Dorsett is a former American football player who has a net worth of $5 million. Tony Dorsett gained his net worth as a running back for Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos before retiring from the game in 1989. Dorsett started his college career at University of Pittsburgh, where he was the first freshman, in 29 years, to be named the All-American and led the team to its first victory season in a decade. The Pittsburgh-born player was selected by Dallas Cowboys for the 1977 NFL Draft, signing a five year contract, worth $1.1 million – the second highest contact to be signed by a rookie. He remained with the Cowboys for ten years. In 1988, the four-time Pro Bowl player was traded to the Denver Broncos, where he led the team to victory that season. However injuries led to his retirement in 1989. During his twelve year, Dorsett delivered several record-breaking results: In 1983, he broke a 99-yard touchdown against the Vikings which is the longest run in NFL history. Dorsett also broke the 97-yards record set by legends Andy Uram and Bob Gage. In honour of Dorsett, a football stadium which is the home of University of Pittsburgh is named after him. His son is American football safety, Anthony Drew Dorsett.
