The much-talked about “Swamp Kings” documentary from Netflix that premiered on Tuesday did more than take a dive into to the national championship runs of the late 2000s Florida Gator teams. It mentioned long-lost former stars on the Gainesville campus, one of them being standout linebacker Brandon Siler — who now has a net worth up to $5 million per year as a retired football player.
What Is Siler Doing Now Post-Florida and the NFL?
Turns out the documentary film from the streaming giant’s “Untold” series never showed what Siler is doing in 2023. However, since his last NFL game in 2012, Siler has since turned to a life of entrepreneurship.
He’s the founder and president of Legacy Pro Sports. According to the website, the company represents more than 5,000 different athletes.
“In founding Legacy Pro Sports, Brandon aimed to create a hand-in-glove business that listens to the issues former professional athletes face and vigorously acts in their best interest,” the mission statement on his bio reads.
The primary goal is to become an outlet for former NFL players who can’t obtain disability benefits.
Siler’s Other Ventures Include New Treatment Center
As a retired former athlete, Legacy Pro Sports isn’t Siler’s only venture.
He’s a co-owner of Pure Recovery California based out of Oxnard. That venture serves as a state-of-the-art mental health treatment center which specializes in the treatment of various addictions including alcohol, opiates, prescription drugs, and treatment for depression and anxiety.
Along with his business ventures, Siler is a keynote speaker and book author of “Definition of a Leader.”
As it was, Siler’s leadership skills was lauded by his former college football head coach Urban Meyer in the documentary. He immediately established himself as one of the first captains for the Meyer-led Gators.
What Became of Siler’s Football Career?
Siler went on to help end a decade-long title dry spell for Florida by helping spearhead the 2006-2007 Gators defense.
He established himself as a ‘backer who snatched 77 tackles (53 solo stops) and 10 tackles behind the line of scrimmage for the national title winners — best known for trouncing the favored Ohio State Buckeyes 41-14 in the Fiesta Bowl.
He went on to test the NFL waters by declaring for the 2007 NFL Draft. Siler, though, fell all the way in the seventh round amid knee concerns.
But, he managed to start in 16 career games and saw action in a total of 74 different contests for the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs. He went on to snatch 180 tackles in his five-year career with 140 solo stops and snatching 16 plays behind the line of scrimmage. He also picked off two passes and delivered three sacks.
Not only was Siler a fiery teammate who admitted to punching a teammate during a gym workout that wasn’t going the Gators’ way, but even the face of those title-winning teams Tim Tebow revealed how he wanted to pick the brain of Siler during his early Gainesville years. Tebow saw how much of a leader Siler was in the locker room and the field.
