It's one thing to save as much money as possible toward your dream car but it's something else to suddenly have the cash necessary to buy ANY car. That's the reality of a lot of the NFL's biggest and brightest stars. Their hefty contracts give them the ability to lay down cash on just about anything, anywhere.
Some of them play it cool and keep it modest, while others go all out and grab the most expensive thing they possibly can.
Join us as we take a look at the 10 Coolest Cars That Football Players Own.
What better way to start a list about some of the coolest cars owned by NFL players than to spotlight one of the trendiest NFL players currently gracing the national stage. Whether or not you like his posh personality and flamboyant dancing, there is no denying that Antonio Brown is a shoo-in for the Hall of Fame.
The energy he brings to each game and his level of play are nothing short of astonishing. It's going to be interesting to see him suit up for someone other than the Steelers this year, but he'll always pay homage to his former team thanks to this custom-painted black and gold Rolls-Royce Wraith.
Let's move from one of the most impressive wideouts in the league to one of the most prolific passers. Russell Wilson may not be as flashy and trendsetting as Antonio Brown but his skills on the field are nothing short of Hall of Fame-worthy in their own right. So what type of car does the talented running-quarterback use as his daily driver?
A gorgeous, "tricked out" Mercedes-Benz G-Wagen. It's got that extra touch of tough thanks to an included bully bar on the front. Rugged yet stylish.
What's the first thing you would purchase if you signed a 72 million dollar contract with over 37 million dollars guaranteed? According to Brock Osweiler, you'd head to the nearest Bugatti dealer and drop a hefty sum on a Veyron. Trust us when we say hefty sum, too, as these vehicles can run in the range of 1.3 to 3 million dollars at retail.
Osweiler may not be a hot product (he's unfortunately been shuffled around the NFL quite a bit lately) but there's no denying that he's turning heads in the Miami area (where he was last) thanks to his insanely luxurious supercar.
Sometimes it's not about grabbing the shiniest supercar you possibly can. Sometimes it's about taking a classic and elevating it to the next level. This is exactly what Quarterback Cam Newton has done with his beautifully designed 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass. This classic car is enough to turn heads on its own but this particular model features gold trim.
We aren't talking just paint either, some of the parts are manufactured from actual 24-karat gold. Newton saved a lot of cash upfront by going for an oldie but after all the modifications, there's no denying that his custom Cutlass is likely one expensive blast from the past.
It's unfortunate that Jamaal Charles has hung up his cleats because he was truly one of the most spectacular running backs to ever grace the league. His explosive style made him an every-down threat and during his stint with the Kansas City Chiefs, he burned more than a few defenders. So what type of car does a blazing-fast running back enjoy driving?
How about something equally as fast? Jamaal Charles weapon of choice is the expensive but explosively quick Lamborghini Gallardo. This is one of the most iconic supercars in the world, which makes it perfect for a future Hall of Famer like Charles.
If this gorgeous muscle car seems a bit familiar to you, it's because it featured heavily as the object of Nicholas Cage's desire in the action-packed racing-adventure, Gone In 60 Seconds. Only one of those vehicles existed, affectionately dubbed Eleanor. That particular vehicle sold for a cool million.
It seems that Reggie Bush is a fan because one of his prized possessions is a Gt500 Fastback that features a very similar paint job. It's easy to see why he loves it so much. In terms of classic American Muscle, this is one of the most eye-catching cars ever made.
We'd be rather remiss if we didn't include Tom Brady somewhere on this list. The future Hall of Fame quarterback is still slinging the ball and it's pretty much guaranteed that many of you are insanely curious about what type of vehicle someone like Tom Brady drives around town.
Although it may not be his daily driver (he's been spotted at events in it), the Audi R8 seems to be his vehicular poison of choice. It may not be as outwardly flashy as some of the other vehicles on this list but there's no denying that the six-figure automobile is incredibly cool all the same.
Patrick Willis was a tour-de-force linebacker for the San Francisco 49ers, so you can bet he was paid handsomely for his efforts. He'd spend some of that cash on a beautifully-designed (and crazy luxurious) car with a top speed of 183 miles per hour.
Willis retired like a super spy with his Aston Martin DB9, a brand that likely looks familiar to James Bond fans. There is something so incredibly sharp about this vehicle, from its smooth lines to its swooping back end. Willis definitely has great taste.
What's he calling himself nowadays, anyway? We suppose it doesn't matter what you call yourself when you drive something as crazy imposing as this Freightliner Truck. A self-given Birthday present, you can guarantee that Ochocinco got this bad boy as loaded as possible.
What more can we say about this absolute beast? Just look at it.
Jared Allen was an amazing player, especially in his golden years with the Minnesota Vikings, but we never realized just how big his personality was until we saw his car of choice. You're definitely making a statement when you use your stacks of cash to secure your very own 1969 Coupe De Ville but Jared made some special modifications to his.
The most notable edition? We sadly don't have a photo but his "daily driver" features a set of bull horns attached to the grill. Talk about southern comfort.
