SEATTLE — Well, it would appear Seattle Seahawks superstar running back Marshawn Lynch is officially hanging up his cleats. And based on his bank account, it looks like the man of few words could have a budding career as a financial advisor.
Inc.com recently quoted NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport as saying Lynch hasn’t spent a dime of what he’s made during his pro career, meaning he has about $50 million in the bank.
Now that’s a lot of Skittles.
Speaking of Skittles, the site also reports Lynch was able to save his millions by living solely off his endorsement money. But Lynch isn’t the only NFL player who knows how to stretch a dollar. In fact, the most frugal team in the league may be one of the Cowboys’ biggest rivals.
Yep, don’t be surprised if you see someone from the Washington Redskins ordering off the dollar menu at a location near you. An article posted by marketwatch.com reports QB Kirk Cousins drives a GMC Savana passenger van.
Running Back Alfred Morris still drives his 1991 Mazda 626, when he’s not riding his bicycle. And pass rusher Ryan Kerrigan, who recently signed a five-year $57 million contract, still shares an apartment with a roommate!
So Marshawn and company is proving… just because you make a lot, doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot.
