Bob first went to Central Tech High School, but in his second year transferred to Cathedral Preparatory School in Erie, Pennsylvania. There, he played football in the running back and safety positions, becoming one of the best players in his class. He received several recognitions, including the two-time All-Conference selection, third-team All-State selection, among many others. After matriculation in 2000, Bob enrolled at the University of Iowa and played football for the Iowa Hawkeyes under head coach Kirk Ferentz. During his college career, he was named to three All-Big Ten teams, and in his senior season he earned selection into the second team All-American.
After college, Bob declared for the 2004 NFL Draft, and was selected by the Indianapolis Colts as the 44th overall pick. His rookie season wasn’t especially good, since he played in only six games, mostly as a backup safety and a special teams player, though he still managed to catch the media’s eyes and his coach’s attention with 29 tackles, and two fumble recoveries. His second year was far better, since he played in 14 games, and had a total of 91 tackles, with one forced fumble, one fumble recovery and one interception. His third season was and wasn’t the lucky one; he did win the Super Bowl with the Colts, as they defeated the Chicago Bears, but in the regular season he played in only four games, due to a knee injury. 2007 year was the best in his entire career; Bob wore the Colts jersey in 15 games and posted a career high 140 tackles, 3.5 sacks, seven forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries, two interceptions and had 18 passes defended, which earned him the Defensive Player of the Year award. Thanks to his great performance, Bob earned a new contract worth $37.5 million over five years, which at the time, made him the highest paid safety in the history of the league, which clearly boosted his net worth.
Unfortunately, injuries began to nag him, and from 2008 until 2010 he played in just nine games for the Colts, before he was released from the team. After that, he signed a one-year contract with the San Diego Chargers, but after only two games he was put on the injured reserves list, due to a swelling in his knee. So frustrated, he decided to retire at the end of the season.
Regarding his personal life, Bob has been married since 2009 and has four children, however, details of his marriage remain unknown in the media.
