Perhaps Alfred Morris and Eli Manning are two of a kind. Both their NFL careers have propelled them to earn millions of dollars, but unlike most of their peers they prefer to lead a relatively simple lifestyle. This bodes well for a future beyond football, buttressed by a fat bank account.
Instead of splurging his hard-earned money with a huge collection of luxury cars, Manning decided to purchase an Escalade Hybrid for $74,500, which isn’t bad at all. This allowed him to maximize his investment by turning to real estate instead in Quogue, South Hamptons for $8.5 million. The value of this beachfront property is only expected to increase, with its peaceful view and direct pathway down the shore.
Von Miller – Cherry Hills Village, Estimated $8 Million
The Denver Broncos’ outside linebacker has turned his dream house into a reality with hard work, and he’s not shy about talking it up. He’s happy and proud of what he has built for himself.
That’s pretty easy to understand, given the contents of his $8 million estate in Cherry Hills Village. It features 7 bedrooms, 6 baths, and a closet room that stores over 800 pairs of designer shoes. The master bedroom is designed after a Vegas hotel room, and its basement has a pool hall.
LaRon Landry – Lamborghini Murcielago, Estimated $450K
LaRon Landry (aka Iron Man) is a former safety for the Washington Redskins, New York Jets, and the Indianapolis Colts. Just like other NFL superstars, Landry has a wide collection of toys that can be attributed to super athletes’ predilection towards speed and power.
His extravagant collections include a white Hummer H2 pickup, a matte white Lamborghini Aventador, a modified 2008 silver Corvette, and a metallic green Lamborghini Murcielago that he customized for a pretty sum of $450,000. You can just stare at these babies the whole day!
Drew Brees – Bugatti Veyron, Estimated $2.2 Million
Drew Brees’ meteoric career in the NFL as quarterback for the New Orleans Saints has fueled his desire for fast cars. He likes to use them to the maximum, too, to the chagrin of local law enforcement.
Out of the five cars that he owns, the ultra-lux Bugatti Veyron is his most expensive one, with a price tag of a cool $2.2 million. He’s also not shy about revving those engines, despite a previous car accident he should be mighty grateful for surviving. Constantly risking it while in the game as well as off the field, if danger can be an addiction for some people, this certainly serves as proof.
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.
