Trinity Rodman, the daughter of NBA Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman, the 2021 Rookie of the Year in the National Women’s Soccer League, received a contract extension with the Washington Spirit on Wednesday, according to the team, making her the highest-paid player in league history. The four-year deal is reportedly for $1.1 million and it is more than six times what she was earning under her prior contract, a three-year agreement with an average base pay of $42,000 that she signed after being selected in the second round of the 2021 NWSL draft. She has an option to extend her contract with the 2024 NWSL Champion team until the 2025 season.

The 19-year-old will earn $281,000 yearly, surpassing the $250,000 salaries of Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe, two superstars of the United States women’s national team. Rodman signed a three-year contract with the league last year with an average base pay of $42,000 plus housing and bonuses in which it was equivalent to what other NWSL players were getting. At the SheBelieves Cup later this month, Rodman, who accepted her first call-up with the USWNT in January, could make her debut. When Trinity was chosen by the Spirit in January 2021, she became the league’s youngest-ever overall pick. 

Will Trinity Rodman boss the sport just like Dennis Rodman dominated his?

Trinity Rodman had a standout season with the Spirit after being selected in the first round of the NWSL draught in January 2021 as the league’s youngest player ever. In April of last year, Rodman made her professional debut, scoring a goal in a Cup game against the North Carolina Courage. The teenager contributed significantly to the success of the Washington Spirit, scoring seven goals in 25 league games, helping the team win the NWSL. Rodman was selected as the Rookie of the Year, won the Young Player of the Year award from US Soccer, and was only recently called up for the training camp of the US Women’s National Team. 

The nickname “The Worm” was given to her father, Dennis Rodman, since he was one of the greatest rebounders in NBA history. Eventually, Dennis Rodman won five NBA titles. He constantly tracked loose balls and gave his teams’ defenses a solid foundation. He put forth a lot of effort, and the results were that he twice made the NBA All-Star team and led the league in rebounds for seven consecutive seasons. He won the league’s Defensive Player of the Year honor twice and spent eight seasons as a member of the NBA All-Defensive Team. In 2011 Rodman was selected for the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, and in 2022 he became a member of the NBA 75th Anniversary team.

The highest-paid player in NSWL history is Trinity Rodman, the daughter of NBA great Dennis Rodman who inked a contract for $1.1 million in February. The contract’s details and conditions, however, were kept private but s he made almost $281,000 last year as a youngster, according to her earnings history. Since joining USWNT, Trinity has been shining like a star. Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe, meanwhile, have acquired sizable financial accounts over the course of their professions. The annual income of Megan and Alex, however, is $250,000.  As she strives to become one of the league’s brightest stars, Rodman ends up being the greatest winner from the move.

Megan Rapinoe won six golden boots and a $4 million award in addition to the 2019 FIFA World Cup triumph. The superstar made $400,000 in 2019 after participating in a number of matches, which is comparable to Alex Morgan’s earnings in that year. On the other side, Megan has sizable endorsement deals with brands like Visa, Nike, and BodyArmor in her back pocket and Alex, on the other hand has Coca-Cola, Volkswagen and Nike. Alex’s estimated net worth is $3 million, compared to Rapinoe’s overall net worth of roughly $5 million. Whatever the circumstances, Trinity Rodman, who is only 20 years old, will soon become a star for the USWNT and reach the heights of Alex and Megan.
