About Jerome Bettis

Nicknamed “The Bus”, Jerome Bettis is a former American football player who has an estimated net worth of $26 million. He earned his net worth while playing as a halfback for the St. Louis Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers in the National Football League (NFL). Born Jerome Abraham Bettis Sr. on February 16, 1972, in Detroit, Michigan, he did not start playing football until high school.

Bettis was the 10th overall pick in the first round of the 1993 NFL Draft by the Los Angeles Rams and signed a three-year contract on July 22, 1993. He quickly earned the nickname “The Battering Ram” as he rushed for 1,429 yards. He was named a First-Team All-Pro and Offensive Rookie of the Year. In the 1995 season, the Rams moved to St. Louis. He was acquired by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1996 as a featured back. He rushed for over 1,300 yards in each of his first six seasons between 1996 and 2001.

Jerome Bettis announced his retirement standing on the champion’s podium while holding the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 2005.
