Travis Etienne's Net Worth, Contract, & Salary In 2021 

On April 29, 2021, Etienne was among the 32 new players welcomed by the National Football League. Being a first-round choice, the Clemson Tigers' running back is guaranteed to receive a four-year contract and a signing bonus with the club worth $2.075billion, reports Forbes.

Spotrac predicts Etienne stands to earn a contract worth $12.9million with a signing bonus, $6.6million. This is betwixt Pittsburgh Steelers' Najee Harris ($13.1million, $6.1million) and Cleveland Browns' Greg Newsome ($12.8million, $6.6million).

It can be understood that even if Etienne disappoints the team or should they choose to cut him, he is never to lose a little over $6million. On the other hand, if the former Tigers' no 9 get through training camp, pre-season and the subsequent roster cut down unscathed, he is likely to get his weekly salary funneling out of his contract of $12million+. In the event that he gets released but then re-signed to Jaguars' practice squad, he will make somewhere around $7k per week as long as he remains with the Jaguars. 

Is Travis Etienne Dating? Girlfriend & Personal Life 

Etienne doesn't seem to have a girlfriend or a partner for now or at least that's what the internet community suggests. The five-foot-ten running-back has been quite expressive about his life on and off the field through his social networking platforms.

Travis, however, is yet to be seen doing some doting activities. It's a mystery if Etienne is actually single or extremely confidential about his relationship. Or it could be that this is something the young star is considering, once his all ducks are set in a row. There's also a possibility that he is one of those star athletes who find a way to keep their love lives as private as possible.
