Just in case you happened to be wondering, JOHN MADDEN didn't die broke. He was worth a reported $200 million when he passed away unexpectedly last Tuesday at the age of 85.
Madden was the first broadcaster to earn a $1 million salary . . . and in his day, he made millions on endorsements.
But his real cash cow was the"Madden"video game franchise. EA Sports paid him $150 million for the right to use his name and likeness in perpetuity.
