The former running back for the New Orleans Saints had a very successful career in the NFL, and along with it came a fortune large enough to keep him set for life. Reggie Bush’s credit must be highly rated by his banks, but it doesn’t seem like that’s how he wants to transact when he procures properties. He didn’t need a mortgage, nor did he consider one.
When he bought this grand property in Los Angeles, with an estimated value of $5.7 million, he had no qualms regarding loans or insurance payments whatsoever. He acquired the 4,831-square-foot-mansion in 2007 with ease.
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.
Adam Podlesh – Illinois, Estimated $880K
Adam Podlesh is an overall standout athlete. The former American football punter for the Chicago Bears also holds a track and field record from his high school days in the Pittsburgh Sutherland High School. He only played in the NFL from 2007 to 2014, though.
Podlesh got a great deal in acquiring his Illinois home in 2011, sealing the sale for only $797.5K. This lavish pad features 5 bedrooms, a family room with a fireplace, a media room, a gym, and much more. Later on, he sold it for $900,000, making a quick return on his investment.
Dwight Freeney – Indiana, Estimated $1.9 Million
This defensive end/linebacker did not wait too long to celebrate upon signing his first contract with the NFL. After concluding a deal with the Indiana Colts, Dwight Freeney’s list of priorities included purchasing an estate in Indiana for an estimated $1.9 million.
However, when the Colts had finally decided to let him go after a decade of partnership, Freeney decided to put this luxurious property up for sale. The 10,000 sq. foot property is still up for grabs, a cool choice if you’re the type who likes modern designs for a home.
