    Yes, he has "millions", but not ludicrous millions.

    Is he hurting for cash?
    Hopefully not.
    Does he have stupid money to toss away on a $100,000+ car?
    I guess, but that's a dumbass thing to spend money on, IMHO.

    My point is he doesn't have Stafford - or even Peterson - type money.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    So about 2.7 million. After taxes it's probably closer to 1.5 million. A new maserati starts at about $120,000. So who knows, he could easily afford the car, but at the same time if you expect that money to last the rest of your life(which he should because his football career could end at any time) then a fancy car probably isn't the best investment. His money though, if he wants to drive a maserati good for him.

    keep in mind he is still young

    He will have enough money to retire and living comfortably

    Maybe, maybe not. If he screws up a knee tomorrow he might never get another NFL check. 1.5million when you buy a nice house, car, vacations, etc.
    He wouldn't be the first NFL player to go broke.
