He was selected by the Packers in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft and was also a member of the Super Bowl XLV championship squad against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was a football player at the University of Colorado. Mason Crosby has a net worth of $9 million and an annual salary of roughly $4 million. He started playing quarterback when he was a student at Cherry Creek High School in north Denver. After graduating, he went on to play college football at Colorado where he was a two-time All-American and set several school records while helping lead the Buffaloes to a 12-1 record and BCS bowl game his senior year.
Crosby entered the NFL as one of only three players from his high school class (the others being Mark Sanchez and Ryan Tannehill) to go directly into the league. The Green Bay Packers chose him in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He began his career as a kicker but was moved to defense before the start of his second season when Berrian broke his collarbone. Crosby replaced the injured Jason Elam as the Broncos' placekicker and led the team with 33 points during the 2012 season. He signed a five-year contract extension with the Broncos in 2013 that will pay him up to $12.5 million.
After Peyton Manning came back from injury last season, he decided to try out his new young replacement Trevor Siemian instead of giving the starting job to Crosby.
Tim played in the NFL from 2002 to 2007, spending six seasons with five different clubs. Tim's net worth is $12 million, which is outstanding but not as high as his brother Matt's net worth of 18 million. However, Tim has more than just his brother to help him earn money - he also has parents who are very wealthy.
When Tim was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft, he knew that his career would not be easy. There were several other wide receivers being drafted ahead of him and the team was likely going to use a draft pick on one of them instead. However, none of these things stopped the Colts from bringing in Tim for a pre-season game against his former team, the Seattle Seahawks. This showed that even though other players were being selected when the Colts had room under the salary cap, they still wanted to bring in Tim for at least one game so they could see what he could do out there. The Colts decided not to keep Tim after this pre-season game and he went back home to Texas where he started a job working with Southwest Airlines.
After two years away from football, Tim joined the Houston Texans in 2004 and spent three seasons with them. During his time with the Texans, they won one division title and made the playoffs twice. In 2007, Tim joined the San Francisco 49ers and stayed with them for four seasons.
