Frank Gore, a former Indianapolis Colts running back, couldn’t care less when he sold his elegant Mediterranean-style mansion for a sum of $1.5 million. When he first purchased the property, back in 2008, he sealed the deal for $1.7 million. A decade later, its value had dropped $200k, a small fraction of the original sale, but a lot still considering how the value should have appreciated in time, especially seeing as he acquired it during a drop in the market.
But Frank Gore didn’t seem to mind much. The amazing Florida property boasts 8 bathrooms, 6 bedrooms, a theater room, an entertaining area, and a swimming pool. He sold it and didn’t look back.
Bernard Berrian – Audi R8, Estimated $170K
The year 2010 was a low point in Bernard Berrian’s football career. The following year, the Minnesota Vikings released him, and that was practically the end of it. But during his heyday as an American football wide receiver, both the Chicago Bears and the Vikings undoubtedly benefited from his performance.
It was a relatively short career for Bernard Berrian, spending three years on each team, but you’ve got to give it to him. In such a short span of tim, he made sure he had a gold token for himself in the form of a customized blue Audi R8. This one’s worth $170k.
Warren Sapp – Orange County, Estimated $2.1 Million
Warren Sapp had the highest of high and the lowest of low stories, both in his personal and professional life. The former defensive tackle for the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quickly transformed his $77 million earnings from his NFL career to a savings account that had less than $1000.
Sapp had come from humble beginnings to become an inspiration to those close to him, as he finally broke through the chains of poverty thanks to the initial wealth he amassed through the NFL. However, what he retained after retirement, a mansion in Orange County, worth $7 million, was sold for only $2.1 million at an auction.
Devin Hester – Chicago, Estimated $2.6 Million
Before Devin Hester made a name for himself in the NFL as a top performing wide receiver, he first made an impact as a kick returner. At times, people tend to forget that when he first entered the league he was signed up as a corner-back.
The turn of tides has been largely favorable for Hester, but when the time came for him to adapt to the vicissitudes of life, he decided to sell his grand home in Chicago. This beautiful mansion has 6 bedrooms, a lovely waterfall, and a relaxing hot tub. He sold it for $1.8 million.
Aaron Rodgers – Chevrolet Camaro, Estimated $35K
Green Bay Packers‘ quarterback Aaron Rodgers is way cooler than we thought. After starting his career, mainly as a backup to Brett Favre, he has finally put himself in the front seat, now leading the NFL as its all-time regular season career passer-rating leader.
Rodgers has a penchant for fast cars. This is manifested by his ownership of a custom 2011 Chevrolet Camaro. The regal ride of the NFL star features a modern entertainment system, a navigation system, and a top of the line security system. Of course, he wouldn’t forget his team’s logo on the back, for inspiration.
