Alex Karras Net Worth – Under Review
Alec Karras was an American football player, professional wrestler and actor nicknamed “The Mad Duck.” He was recruited by the University of Iowa and signed against the Hawkeyes. He’d an impressive college football career; he was twice named to the All-American team, won the Outland Trophy, and set higher to the Heisman trophy position than any domestic lineman. He also helped the Hawkeyes win the 1957 Rose Bowl Championship. Karras was drafted in the very first round of the 1958 National Football League Draft from the Detroit Lions. He developed a reputation as among the very most dominant defensive players in the league. He stayed together with the team during his 12-year career in the league. He became a four-time Pro Bowl choice, though he never won a Super Bowl. As a professional wrestler, Alex started his career when he signed a contract on December 13, 1957 which earned him $25 thousand during the six-month NFL off-season. While he was still an NFL player, he appeared as himself when the nonfiction book Paper Lion by George Plimpton was adapted into a movie of exactly the same name. Karras pursued his playing chances and went to portray the character of Hughie Rae Feather, a tender hillbilly weightlifter, in the sports humor The 500 Pound Jerk on CBS in 1973. His other movie works comprise Blazing Saddles,Porky, Centennial, Victor Victoria and Against All Odds. His television appearances contained guest parts on M*A*S*H, Odd Couple, Match Game ’75, Mad Bull and Webster. Karras passed away on October 10, 2012 in La, California.
