Good for him. He should be and could be set for life right now. If he gets a bigger contract and has a few good more years then that is a successful career and puts him in a place to help others.

$4.4 gross for a lifetime? Probably not. Especially w/ the NY taxes.

Well he has to have netted at least $3 million so far after taxes. that is a lot of dough. You can buy a bunch of duplexes etc and have the renters pay for them for you and make another couple million over the years that way.

I would say compared to someone working 35 years to make $1.5 million GROSS Ike is in a good spot.

How do you come to $3M net? Marginal tax rate is going to be pushing 40%. Not to mention fees not associated w/ "regular" income he needs to pay - agent fees (though typically deductible), recovery expenses (also typically a deduction), taxes on non-cash compensation, financial adviser (the Jock Tax looks like a nightmare), etc.

Also, $1.5M gross for 35 years? You cant compare wages of the 70s to the market in 2020-2080

The 2021 tackle situtation is a little like when Ike and Boone Meyers started there at Redshirt Freshman. Hopefully we'll see the same growth in this new crop of Richmond, Colby and DeJong.
