Doug Martin Net Worth $10 Million

Doug spent his childhood in Stockton, California and went to St. Mary’s High School, where he was one of the best football players in his class, earning the team’s Most Valuable Player award in his senior season, after compiling a record of 14 touchdowns and rushing for 1,234 yards. He was also a notable track and field athlete setting a personal best in the 100-meter dash of 11.15 seconds, among many other results.

Thanks to his athleticism, Doug drew the attention of various prestigious universities, including the University of California, Berkeley, but instead chose Boise State University, where he continued to play football, and in four years earned a number of recognitions, including being named the MVP of the 2011 Maaco Bowl Las Vegas, following a successful return of the opening kickoff 100-yards for a touchdown, and rushing for 151 yards and a touchdown. During his college career, Doug scored 48 touchdowns in total, 43 of which were rushing from 3,431 rushing yards, which ranks him third in the history of the university. He earned the “muscle hamster” nickname because of his height and weight; he stands at only 5’9’’, while he weighs 223 lb.

He finished his studies with a degree in business, and declared for the 2012 NFL Draft; he was chosen by the Buccaneers as the 31st overall pick, and the second running back in the draft after Trent Ricardson, who was chosen by the Cleveland Browns as the third overall pick. Doug signed a contract worth $6.787 million over five years with the Tampa Bay franchise, marking the start of his professional career. During the preseason, Doug earned himself a place in the first team, thanks in part to two rushing touchdowns.

Doug played in all 16 games, scoring 11 rushing touchdowns while adding 1,454 rushing yards to his name. This turned out to be his best season in the NFL so far, and which earned him a place in the Pro Bowl and in the PFWA All-Rookie Team. He also showed that he is a pretty good receiver with 472 yards and one touchdown. The following year, Doug had a great start with 144 yards on 29 carries against the New Orleans Saints, but he tore his labrum only six games into the season and was put on the season-ending injured reserves in November. Anyways, he had 456 yards and one touchdown.

Coming out of the injury in 2014, Doug wore the Buccaneers jersey 11 times, scoring two touchdowns. The next season Doug was back into his rookie season achievements, with 1,402 rushing yards and six touchdowns, with another 252 receiving yards and one touchdown. Unfortunately, he was back to his mediocre numbers of under 500 rushing yards in both 2016 and 2017 seasons, however, this was enough for a new contract with the Buccaneers, worth $35.75 million over five years, which only increased his net worth. Unfortunately, in December 2016, Doug was suspended for testing positive for Adderall, which is restricted by the NFL. He was suspended for four games, and he was left without $15 million in guaranteed money.

When it comes to his personal life, Doug manages to hide his most intimate details away from the public eye, therefore no reliable information is available about the Buccaneers starting running back’s private affairs.
