What is Aaron Ross’ net worth?

Aaron Ross is a former American football cornerback who has a net worth of $10 million. He played for the Baltimore Ravens, the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the New York Giants.

Ross won Super Bowl XLII and Super Bowl XLVI with the New York Giants.

He was born on September 15, 1982, in San Antonio, Texas.

Ross only started to play football in high school. 

“My mom had us at a young age, so my grandmother raised us,” Aaron said in April 2013. “She really didn’t allow us to play sports. I kind of moved away with my dad and moved to San Antonio. I started school there and then got into a little bit of trouble so I had to go back into East Texas, and that’s what kind of settled me in; the coach told me, set me down, and told me that I really had an opportunity to become a star.”

While attending John Tyler High School, Ross played as a running back, wide receiver, and quarterback, under coach Allen Wilson — who won two Texas state championships.

Aaron also played at Fox Tech High School.

During college, Ross played for the Texas Longhorns football team. 

“The Longhorns, it’s like a lifelong dream to play to become a Longhorn, so once you UT coach came to talk to me, I was sold,” Ross said in an interview with The New York Giants in September 2017.

“They offered me a scholarship. I didn’t take another visit anywhere else. Coming to a place that you’ve always dreamt about coming to and having a chance to be a part of a great team, it was like a brotherhood. We were trained together, we eat together, we party together, we would do everything together.”

In 2005, Aaron won the National Championship.
