Drew Bledsoe started showing an interest and skills in football during attending Walla Walla High School, sand became a member of the school team and named to a first team All-State selection by the Tacoma News Tribune. Although he was very active in basketball and track as well, Bledsoe decided to concentrate on a career as a professional football player. Thus, as he continued education at Washington State University, he continued playing football for the college team, where he spent three years. In his first season, he was named as Pac-10 Offensive Player of the year, however, his second season was nowhere near his accomplishments of the first season, in which he led the college team to 9-3 record.

Regardless, he decided to forgo his senior season, and enter the 1993 NFL Draft. Drew was drafted as the first overall pick by the New England Patriots, who struggled a lot in those years, however, under Drew`s tenure, Patriots became a winning franchise. During his tenure with Patriots, his net worth increased by a large margin, as thanks to his great performance, he earned contract extensions and also bonuses. With the Patriots he won his only Super Bowl Championship, in the 2001 season, leading his team to victory against the St. Louis Rams. Furthermore, he made three Pro Bowl appearances in 1994, 1996 and 1997, and was also named into the Patriots Football Hall Of Fame in 2011.

In 2002, he was traded to the Buffalo Bills, and in his first season made his fourth and last Pro Bowl appearance. In 2004 he was released by the Bills, as his performance wasn`t as great as the managers expected, however, he was soon signed by the Dallas Cowboys on a three year contract worth $23 million, which certainly added to his overall net worth. He was released by the club after the 2006 season, as his performance on the field wasn`t something to talk about, and he was replaced by Tony Romo. As a consequence, Drew`s new role was as a back-up, but he wasn`t satisfied with that, which eventually led to his release.

When he retired, in 2007 Drew Bledsoe established the Doubleback Winery, with his close friend Chris Figgins, now owning vineyards located in and around Walla Walla, Washington. The wine was placed on the 53rd overall in Wine Spectator’s Top 100 Wine.

When it comes to his personal life, Drew Bledsoe is married to Maura, with whom he has four children. After his official retirement, Bledsoe devoted himself to family, and in free time he works for many philanthropic organizations. Their current residence is in Bend, Oregon.
