Once in a while, we get to read about some nice things that still exist in the world of extremely wealthy super athletes. Even in the NFL, it is not always about swag, or athletes trying to steal attention from each other, making a fashion statement.
Take this story about Tom Brady gifting Malcolm Butler with a 2015 Chevy Colorado, for example. Brady earned this vehicle as a reward for the third Super Bowl MVP achievement of his football career, and he simply wanted to share his blessings with a modest guy like Butler, who deserves more than he’s willing to accept.
Landon Collins – California City Apartment, $1.7 Million
Landon Collins, the New York Giants safety, owns one of the most expensive apartments in California. It is located at the top floor of a high-rise building, that offers him a stellar view of the area, city lights co-mingling with the stars at night. It has two bedrooms, built on hardwood flooring, and a fashionable pool awaits him on the rooftop.
Whenever Landon Collins decides to drive around the city, he has the option to take his Buick or BMW. Both are cool choices, not too conspicuous, but certainly with a touch of class.
LeGarrette Blount – Custom Chevy, Estimated $44,995
When LeGarrette Blount wasn’t knocking down guys in the football field amidst thousands of chants, he would ride this custom Chevy, that is, in itself, a knockout.
His favorite car may not be ideal for many, but that’s just how the American football running back rolls. He just signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles, and may add another ride to his list of eye-catching custom cars. But right now, this Chevy is his favorite, with its huge wheels, red colored rims, and chassis, customized to lift the casing up like a pickup truck.
Marcus Mariota – Luxury Cottage in Hawaii, $2.45 Million
Marcus Mariota’s is not just any cottage, on any ordinary beachfront. This is in Hawaii, his beautiful island birthplace, and the luxury cottage has an open floor design, which is complemented by 3,196 sq. ft. of space. It has vaulted ceilings and expensive sofas, behind wide windows that grant a panoramic view of the Kailua Beach.
The luxury cottage is estimated to be worth $2.45 million. But the American football quarterback is only 25 years of age, and has been signed with the Tennessee Titans since 2015. He is the first Hawaiian-born athlete to win the Heisman Trophy.
Travis Kelce – Mercedes Benz, $315,000
Travis Kelce didn’t just waltz his way into earning so much with the Kansas City Chiefs. It was the product of a last minute decision, and from there on he had to prove his worth, until he was able to establish his distinct value in the team.
When the Chiefs ultimately decided to sign him to a multi-million dollar deal, they already knew firsthand that they had the right man for the job. Travis Kelce followed up by starting a collection of luxury cars, which included specimens like this AMG class SUV truck car by Mercedes Benz, that he bought for $315,000. He knows he deserves it.
