In 1991, he set a Texas Southern record with 41.5 sacks.
Strahan joined the New York Giants in 1993 and went on to become one of the most dominant defensive ends in the NFL between 1997 and 2005. He was named the 2001 NFL Defensive Player of the Year and was a two-time NFC Defensive Player of the Year (in 2001 and 2003).
In his final season, he helped the New York Giants beat the then-undefeated New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII 2008. Strahan had two tackles and one sack in the game. After his retirement, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2014.
Since leaving professional football, he has worked as a co-host on the Fox NFL Sunday pregame show. In 2018, Strahan was picked as host of the Fox NFL Thursday pregame show. He was also the co-host of the rebranded syndicated talk show “Live! with Kelly and Michael” from 2012 to 2016. Strahan won a Daytime Emmy twice for “Outstanding Talk Show Host” while working on this show.
In 2018, he began working with Sara Haines as host of “Good Morning America”. The show was rebranded as “Strahan, Sara and Keke” in 2019 to accommodate the introduction of Keke Palmer as co-host. Additionally, Michael Strahan has been a guest on several television shows and has also made cameo appearances in films and television series.

Additionally, her businesses are paying her well, and this is likely how she managed not to appear in the news a lot since leaving her first husband.
On the other hand, Michael Strahan has a net worth of about $60 million from his many television show gigs and brand endorsement.

Since their divorce, Strahan and Hutchins have stayed out of each other’s hair. The only thing that connects them is their kids and they handled their joint custody maturely until they were grown enough to live alone.
Wanda Hutchins still controls her interior design business empire, but lives a quiet life away from the media.
It is commendable that she has avoided the temptation to latch on to the fame that comes with being Michael Strahan spouse. Hutchins chose instead to avoid attracting attention to herself and focused on her business instead.
She also devoted her time to her two children. With a steady stream of income, the 51-year-old is living her life to the full. She does not have a social media presence that we know of except her company’s Facebook page.
