With curiosity around Kurt’s life now rising, fans are clamoring to know what his and Brenda’s present net-worth might be. Let’s find out, shall we?
How Did Kurt and Brenda Warner Earn Their Money?
According to reports, Kurt met Brenda back in 1993 when he was playing college football at the University of Northern Iowa. Meanwhile, Brenda, a retired United States Marine Corps, was a recent divorcee with two kids. Although the couple soon took to each other and began dating, they faced several financial challenges and had quite a rocky road ahead. In 1994, Kurt was signed by the Green Bay Packers but was let go before the regular season. Thus, hunting for an opportunity, Kurt began playing for the Iowa Barnstormers in the AFL.

Such times were tough for the couple, and Kurt even had to work at a grocery store overtime to make ends meet. Still, the couple stuck by each other and tied the knot in 1997. Thankfully, in 1998, their fortunes changed for the better as the St. Louis Rams signed Kurt. Soon his talent shone through, and by the following year, Kurt established himself as the starting quarterback.
With him in the team, the Rams went on to win the Superbowl in 2000, and Kurt was named the Super Bowl MVP. Around this time, the NFL legend even launched his book ‘All Things Possible: My Story of Faith, Football, and the First Miracle Season’ to resounding success. He further earned his second league MVP award in 2001 and never looked back as he embarked on an outstanding career studded with awards, wins, and achievements.
In 2004, Kurt signed a one-year, $3 million deal with the New York Giants before moving to the Arizona Cardinals in 2005. His five-year stint with the Cardinals saw him bring glory to the team and lead them to the Superbowl multiple times. Finally, in 2010 he announced his retirement and expressed a desire to lead a quiet family life. By that time, Kurt and Brenda had five kids of their own, and the NFL legend had adopted Brenda’s children from her previous marriage.
