About Rodney Peete
Former American football quarterback Rodney Peete has an estimated net worth of $5.5 million. Born in Mesa, Arizona on March 16, 1966, he went to Sahuaro High School in Tucson, Arizona until his junior year and later at Shawnee Mission South High School in Overland Park, Kansas for his senior year. A three-year letterman in football, basketball and baseball, he was named the Arizona High School Player of the Year as a junior.
During the 1984 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft, Peete was drafted in the 30th round as the 722nd overall pick by the Toronto Blue Jays. However, he did not sign for the league. He chose to attend college at the University of Southern California (USC). He was the first player ever from the USC to win the Johnny Unitas Award as the nation’s best senior quarterback. He was later joined by Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart.
Rodney was a star third-baseman on the USC baseball team and was named to the all-Pac-10 team. While he was at USC, he was drafted three times in the MLB. He was the 359th overall pick in the 14th round by the Oakland Athletics in 1988, the 348th overall pick in the 13th round by the Athletics, again, in 1989 and the 742nd overall pick in the 28th round by the Detroit Tigers in 1990.
In 1989, Rodney Peete was selected by the Detroit Lions as the 141st pick in the 6th round of the NFL Draft. He may not have a spectacular career in the NFL but he played well enough to sustain his place in the league for 16 seasons. Mostly as a backup, he has played for six different franchises. He retired in 2004 and became one of the hosts of the talk show called The Best Damn Sports Show Period in the Fox Sports Net. He works along with other professional athletes such as John Salley, Chris Rose and Rob Dibble.
