The Dallas Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott is beyond grateful to finally make it to the big league, but he isn’t the type to forget his roots.
Thrilled for signing his rookie contract, Elliot’s first act wasn’t to go shopping for himself, although we all know he eventually would. Humble and loving, the first thing that popped into his mind when he got his millions was to reach out to the people who had reared him to become the man he is now: his parents. He proudly bought them a new house! As for himself, the running back bought a white Corvette Stingray worth $60,000. This chic sports car matches the personality of the young football superstar – a standout athlete with superb strength.
Joe Flacco – Corvette Stingray, Estimated $70K
When Baltimore Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco was named as the Super Bowl’s Most Valuable Player in 2013, he deserved nothing less for his devotion to training and commitment to his team.
Aside from the highly coveted award, he was also gifted this gorgeous red-orange Corvette Stingray, worth $70,000. Indeed, a supercar for a super player. Flacco reportedly had to pay for the taxes on this vehicle, which he didn’t mind doing, considering not only its monetary value but the warm memories of a great season.
Ryan Tannehill – Fort Lauderdale, Estimated $4.3 Million
With the stacks of money involved in building a career in the National Football League, it would be wise for athletes to hire financial advisers and managers. They make sure these affluent athletes do not lose control over their money and that their future remains secure.
Take it from Miami Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who brags about his mesmerizing waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale. Tannehill’s 5,480 square foot mansion includes 4 bedrooms, 5 baths, a home gym, a huge pool, and a cozy guesthouse that has an estimated value of $4.3 million. Despite the splurge, he knows he’s not overspending most of the time.
Marcell Dareus – Ferrari F430, Estimated $280K
Marcell Dareus drives a car that looks to be borne by golden coins for its customized gold rims. He is flamboyant like that, and it’s not a regular car you’d see just anywhere.
It’s called the “Fur-rari,” apparently because it’s exterior is wrapped in red velvet. You certainly cannot accuse the guy of being inconspicuous, but why should he be? The defense tackle for the Jacksonville Jaguars owns a gorgeous red Ferrari F430 worth $280,000. That’s not something you’d like to keep in the background. This luxury vehicle features a custom JL Audio system, which is controlled by an iPad mini.
Julio Jones – Atlanta, Estimated $1.2 Million
Julio Jones, the wide receiver of the Atlanta Falcons, has an impressive spread of property on Camp Branch Road in Atlanta. If he’s not out competing with his team, he pampers himself in a home that boasts 7 bedrooms, 9 baths, heated floors, a home gym, and an entertainment room.
Who knows what one can do with all that in one super house? But it sure is a grand investment that promises future value. Aside from his mansion, there are other things to keep him entertained, such as a tennis court, an outdoor kitchen, a pool, and a guesthouse.
