Rashad started playing football while attending Jefferson Forest High School in his hometown, although he wasn’t used rather often, in fact, he was fifth running back in his team and played only one game in his junior year. In the next season, the team was marred by injuries which meant more time for young Rashad, and in his first start, he scored a 30-yard touchdown. Jennings steadily improved his play, and attracted the attention of a scout from the University of Tennessee, however, his grades weren’t good enough for the university.

Then he transferred to Lynchburg Christian Academy, where he continued to play football, but was sent back a year because of his poor grades, however, during his two years at Lynchburg Rashad compiled a record of 3,287 rushing yards alongside 56 touchdowns.

After matriculation, he enrolled at the University of Pittsburgh, but the following year returned to Lynchburg as he transferred to Liberty University. He continued his football career, and finished his college years with 3,633 yards, alongside 42 touchdowns.

He declared for the 2009 NFL Draft and was chosen by the Jacksonville Jaguars as the 250th overall pick, and soon after signed his rookie-scale contract, marking the start of his professional career and establishing his net worth.

In his rookie season, Rashad played in 15 games, although he didn’t make a single start, and rushed for 202 yards scoring one touchdown. He continued with good plays in the 2010 season, starting three games and scoring four touchdowns from 459 rushing yards. His improvement was held back by injuries before the 2011 season even started, and he didn’t make a single appearance for the Jaguars in 2011.

Nevertheless, he returned to the field in 2012, and in ten games scored two touchdowns and had 283 rushing yards, but that wasn’t enough to remain on the team, and as a result, his contract wasn’t renewed.

However, Rashad wasn’t long without a contract as he signed with the Oakland Raiders and in his first season had a career-high in both rushing yards and touchdowns with six touchdowns and 733 rushing yards. Serving as a backup running back Rashad posted some good numbers, but that wasn’t enough for him to stay in Oakland, and after his contract expired he became a free agent.

His next stop was New York, as he signed a contract worth $14 million over four years with the Giants, which increased his net worth, and spent the next three years as the starting running back for the team, having a career-best season in 2015 with 863 rushing yards, though only three touchdowns. He was released by the Giants in February 2017, and after a whole year without finding a new club, Rashad has decided to retire from NFL.

Rashad is also known for his participation in the TV dance competition show “Dancing with the Stars” in 2017; he was paired with Emma Slater, and the two ultimately won the show. By doing so, Rashad became the fourth NFL player to win the season of the popular show.

When it comes to his personal life, unfortunately, there isn’t much info on Rashad’s private affairs in the media, although he and TV personality Angela Simmons were romantically linked, but otherwise the former running back tends to keep his most intimate details hidden from the public eye.
