John Elway Bio
John Elway is a retired American football player who has a net worth of $145 million. He currently acts as the general manager and president of football operations for the Denver Broncos. Elway was an extremely successful quarterback during his career, and he set a number of records before his retirement in 1999.
John Elway was born alongside his twin sister on June 28th of 1960 in Port Angeles, Washington. Raised alongside his twin and an older sister, John watched his father excel as a football coach from an early age. The family moved around throughout the United States as John’s father Jack acted as a football coach for the University of Montana and Washington State.
During his NFL career, John earned a total of $47 million in salary alone. He earned tens of millions of additional income from endorsements during his playing days. Outside of professional sports he has earned and lost massive fortunes in outside business investments. We details these dealings later in this article.
John Elway excelled as a high school quarterback, establishing himself as a “dual-threat” who could pass and run with equal levels of proficiency. During his high school years, Elway also became a skilled baseball player. By the time he was ready to graduate, dozens of colleges had sent him football scholarship offers.
He eventually joined Stanford University and became their star quarterback. Although his last game for Stanford was ruined by a controversial play resulting in the team’s loss, he nevertheless amassed an impressive record that drew attention from the NFL. He also continued to excel on the baseball diamond and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in economics.

At the beginning of his career with the Broncos, Elway struggled to establish himself as the team’s starting quarterback. However, when Steve DeBerg suffered a shoulder injury, Elway stepped in and led them to a Superbowl game in 1986. In 1987, the Broncos returned to the Superbowl but were defeated a second time. They returned to the Superbowl in 1989, this time suffering a rather demoralizing defeat. At this point in his career, Elway was very young and some doubted that he would ever win the Superbowl.
John Elway was picked by the Baltimore Colts in the 1983 Draft, and he then controversially convinced them to trade him immediately. He even threatened to play for the New York Yankees (Elway still had the potential to become a professional baseball player) if he wasn’t traded. Eventually, he got his wish and was traded to the Denver Broncos.
John Elway established five car dealerships under the brand name John Elway Autos. Located in Denver, the dealerships were sold to AutoNation in 1997 for $82.5 million. The deal also allowed AutoNation to use Elway’s name as a marketing tactic until 2006. After 2006 when the deal expired, Elway was able to re-enter the auto dealership industry under his own name.
However, he gradually gained valuable experience and confidence over the next few years. In 1997 he led his team back to the Superbowl and finally got the win he was dreaming of. Once again, Elway’s performance left something to be desired – but it didn’t matter. The Broncos had won. The next year, Elway had one of the best performances of his entire career when he won the Superbowl yet again. He was named MVP in what was his last game.
