Yeah... among, a great chance, the all depends on how much more football players make than NBA players.. and I also wonder about baseball players, they can make a ton.
Brandon Inge made a boatload of money playing for quite a few years for the Tigers. He played 13 seasons (12 with the Tigers and 1 with the A's).

Jerry Dipoto is currently the General Manager of the Seattle Mariners and also played in the majors. He played 5 years in the majors and now has been a major league general manager since 2010. He has been the General Manager of the Diamondbacks, Angels and Mariners. He probably leads the VCU list, followed by Inge and Sanders.

And then, let's not forget the professional career Gerald Henderson had. Money wasn't as big then, but he spent quite a few years in the NBA.

I believe he has a great chance to be among if not the highest paid VCU alumni pro athletes ever, soon.
Mo still has to establish himself as an every down, go to receiver. To date he isnt. Troy Daniels is at 3 million per. Mo's value to the Colts and any team in the near future is his affordability relative to his talent.

I think at some point, unless Troy gets an uptick in value Mo may very well become the highest paid professional Ram. Troy's highest was around 3.5 million.

Let's hope all the boys Treveon, Troy, Mo, and all the guys in Europe all make as much as they can before they retire into normal life.

Fantastic long-form article about Mo in The Athletic.

"The towering new freshman happened to be the quietest kid on the roster, this timid teen who arrived on campus lacking in both spirit and self-belief. He’d come from a small high school, played for a low-level AAU program and was still filling out his 6-foot-6 frame. His skill set was raw, his personality muted, his game passionless.

It drove his coach crazy.

Shaka Smart remembers wanting to grab Mo Alie-Cox during those first few practices and shake him.

Look at you! Don’t you know how good you can be?

“The one thing he did not have when he showed up … the one thing we had to develop in him, was a motor,” Smart, the former VCU coach, remembered. “He just had this sluggish vibe to him.

“But a blind man could’ve seen the potential.”
