This week, ESPN.com released their annual “World Fame 100” article, detailing the top 100 famous athletes across the planet.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz made his debut on the list, coming in at #89. Wentz is one of only eight NFL players (Tom Brady, Odell Beckham Jr., Colin Kaepernick, Drew Brees, Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, and Rob Gronkowski) to make the list, and is the 6th quarterback on the list.
Wentz (one million) has the 2nd smallest social media following on the list, in front of only figure skating’s Yuzuru Hanyu, who has zero social media followers since he doesn’t use social media.
According to the list, Wentz also markets his fame by raking in $11 Million in endorsements. Who knows, maybe he’ll give Howie Roseman a discount for his new contract coming after the 2019 season if he is able to keep raking in the endorsements money.
