Net worth

Nixon, as a rookie, is expected to earn at least half a million dollars if he makes the roster. That works out to around $11,000 per week. And if his contract isn’t guaranteed (due to his selection in the fifth round), he is guaranteed a signing bonus of at least $200,000.

Newcomers picked in the fourth through seventh rounds are also paid well. Their four-year contract is expected to be net worth just over $3 million. The fifth-round pay scale ranges from $600,000 to $700,000.

Personal life

“I really woke up next to a Carolina Panther this morning Daviyon Nixon,” Lyric Ver, a Kenosha resident, wrote on Facebook on May 3, 2021. Nixon’s followers have assumed that the defensive tackle is in a relationship because of the squared heart emoji.

This isn’t the first time their friendship has been validated. Since the NFL rookie’s pre-draft days, Ver has been by his side. She also posted it on Facebook to congratulate her boyfriend on his NFL debut. Nixon didn’t appear on Ver’s page until November 22, 2020, so it’s unclear when the couple began dating.

On this day, she officially declared her love for the football player by uploading a video and captioning it, “In case yall missed it, Daviyon Nixon, for the touchdown, proud girlfriend moment,” on Instagram.

Nixon’s supporters first heard him use the term “girlfriend” on National Girlfriend Day in 2020. “Been to hell and back with this one, happy national girlfriend day baby girl,” the DT wrote, wishing Vera a happy day.
