    The Cars of NFL Stars

    http://finance.yahoo.com/family-home/article/104155/The-Cars-of-NFL-Stars
    Orpheus Roye is not a small man.

    At 6'4" and 330 pounds, he is a defensive tackle for the National Football League's Cleveland Browns.


    Befitting a man of his physical stature, Roye likes his cars large. His fleet of seven vehicles features some of the biggest rides from an array of mostly luxury manufacturers. Among them are a 2004 Mercedes-Benz CL-Class coupe, a 2005 Land Rover Range Rover Supercharged, a 2006 Bentley Flying Spur, a 2007 Mercedes S550 sedan, and the most massive of all, a 2007 Maybach 57S.

    Most of the cars are black, but his latest, the Maybach, is white. "The Maybach makes me feel like I’m a king," Roye says, shortly after finishing up a grueling Friday practice earlier in the season.

    Roye says he didn’t have much growing up, and he thinks of his vehicles as a symbol of making it. They are a reward he gives himself. "I work hard enough," he says.

    But not all of them are rewards. At least one is kept as a reminder of his roots — Roye still hangs on to his first car, a 1996 Buick Regal...

    He might want to think about staying out of the Piano bars.
    ;D

    I wonder if the Titans or the Bengals will draft him.

    Re: The Cars of NFL Stars

    The date of the picture on the McFadden pictrure says April of 1999?
    Probably just didn't set there camera date correctly.

    Intersting read though.
    It's funny that some players hold on to their old crappy rides.
    I thought it was funny that the first card Roye's first car was a 1996 Regal...isn't 96' the year he was drafted?
    You would think he would have bought a nicer ride.
    ;D

    He probably could if they removed both front seats.
    He could sit on the backseat and drive like that.

    And this is answers the questions everyone has every time a professional ball player/celebrity gets busted while driving under the influence: "Why the F is he driving around if he has that kind of money? Why not call a cab/limo?"

    Because the guys LOVE their cars.

    That is by far the stupidest excuse for drunk driving I have ever heard.

    There's no excuse for getting behind the wheel under the influence, I don't give a fuck how much you love your car.

    I love my car, in fact I love it so much I wouldn't want to risk crashing it into anything or anyone while drunk driving.
