Ahmad’s professional career began in 1972, when he was selected as the 4th overall pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1972 NFL Draft, althoughhe stayed at the Cardinals only one season, as he was traded to the Buffalo Bills. In his first season, he was named to the UPI All-Rookie team, thanks to his great performances; however, the coach Bob Hollway was fired, and as a result, Ahmad was traded.

He spent two years at the Buffalo Bills, but missed the whole 1975 season as he suffered a knee injury. In 1976, he was training with the Seattle Seahawks, but was eventually traded to the Minnesota Vikings, for whom he played until his retirement in 1982, during which time his net worth increased to a large degree.

Furthermore, Ahmad was also named into the 50 Greatest Vikings.

After he retired, Ahmad became a commentator and analyst for various NFL, NBA and MLB shows, which also increased his net worth. He was a host of “NBA Inside Stuff”, and also hosted “Celebrity Mole”, and “Caesars Challenge” with Dan Doherty. Furthermore, he had his own show “NBA Access With Ahmad Rashad”, and was a panelist on the daily talk show “Morning Drive” on the Golf Channel in 2013.

Regarding his personal life, Ahmad Rashad has been married four times, firstly in 1969 with Deidre Waters, with whom he has a daughter. Later, he married Matilda Johnson in 1976; they have two children and were together only three years.
