Your Favorite Sports Superstars And The Supercars They Drive
Earl Thomas – Mclaren 600LT
Baltimore Ravens’ free safety player Earl Thomas, who would assist the Seattle Seahawks in their Super Bowl victory against the Broncos, is reportedly the proud owner of a McLaren 600LT. That’s one of the perks, we’re guessing, of signing a 4-year, $55-million deal with an NFL team. And, what’s more, this isn’t his only supercar—oh, no, it is not! A gander into Thomas’ garage and one will see a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster. It certainly looks like this man wants some of his investments to be fast, look good, and be running around in four wheels!
Brandon Marshall – Porsche 911 GT3
Brandon Marshall, who played for a slew of NFL teams throughout his career and was last signed by the New Orleans Saints (although he was released a month later for not appearing in any games—yeah, we’re scratching our heads about it, too), is reportedly a proud owner of a Porsche 911 GT3. One amusing story about this man’s Porsche is it was included in a deal he had with fellow NFL player Antonio Brown. The deal—or bet—was that Brown could keep his Porsche if he managed to get more receiving yards than him. To Brown’s credit, he did receive more yards than Marshall and won the bet, but opted instead for the financial equivalent of the car to be donated to a charity of his choice.
Marshall Lynch – Lamborghini Aventador
Marshall Lynch is now a free agent, and we’re not sure which team he’ll be signing up with next season, but it’s safe to say he’s managed to accumulate a gargantuan amount of wealth throughout his career after playing for various NFL teams. And one of the most conspicuous investments he’s made from said wealth is a white Lamborghini Aventador—and, damn, it is looking mighty fine! Indeed, Lynch seems to love his Lambo so much that it was once photographed with velvet ropes on either side of the car, placed there by none other than Lynch himself.
Julio Jones – Ferrari 458 Spyder
Wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, Julio Jones, who in 2018 became “the fastest player in NFL history to reach 10,000 career receiving yards,” decided at some point in the recent past that his credit score was too big and needed shaving. He eventually decided that a Ferrari 458 Spyder was the best way to shave off some of his money and keep him humble. We kid, of course! In all seriousness, however, Jones is actually a supercar lover, and this Ferrari 458 Spyder with Forgiato wheels is reportedly only one of a few supercars that the man owns.
Aaron Rodgers – Mercedes Benz SLS AMG
Quarterback for the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, who has managed to set more than a few passing records throughout his career and is widely considered to be one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the sport, reportedly drives around in a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG. It’s definitely not the only amazing car he has though since it’s also been reported that he has $3 million worth of enviable cars in his garage and that this Mercedes AMG is just one of them. Of course, none of this is surprising for an elite NFL superstar with Rodger’s degree of success.
Amari Cooper – BMW I8
Wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, Amari Cooper, who was considered one of the top wide receivers during the 2015 NFL draft and who is still at 26 years old at the height of his career, reportedly drives around and luxuriates in a BMW I8 hybrid supercar. Not bad for a kid who came from a low-income area to become the number 4 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. As of 2020, the young football player was, to his credit, able to accumulate a net worth of $12 million. While it’s not as high as some of his colleagues, he’s only 26 and still has his whole career ahead of him.
Michael Strahan – Porsche 911 GT3 RS
Retired professional football player, Michael Strahan, who holds the distinction for having the most sacks in a single season in 2001 and is now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, reportedly drives around in an ultra-sweet Porsche 911 GT3 RS. And, why shouldn’t he?—he’s worth $65 million after all. It’s not the only car in Strahan’s garage that’s drool-worthy, however, because he’s made quite a sizable investment in more than a few luxury cars, including a Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Roadster, a Rolls-Royce Drophead, a Mercedes SL65 Black Series, and more.
Tom Brady – Aston Martin DB11
Ah, Tom Brady, the man with a fantastically enviable life. He’s a quarterback for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, earning millions of dollars in salary and endorsements and is married to a supermodel. He’s also got real estate investments all over the country and a car collection that includes an Aston Martin DB11, an Audi R8, a Rolls-Royce Ghost, and more. We guess those are the perks of being worth $180 million and having a wife with a net worth of twice that. It really must be awesome to wake up every morning just to look at the mirror and have Tom Brady staring at you.
Frank Gore – Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead
Running back for the New York Jets, Frank Gore, who assisted the 49ers to reach Super Bowl XLVII only to eventually lose to the Baltimore Ravens back in 2012 and is reportedly also the oldest active running back in the league, is said to be the proud daddy of a drop-dead gorgeous Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead. Well, how much money did Gore drop for his uh… Drophead, you ask? Oh nothing, really—just close to $1 million! A Rolls-Royce is, to some degree, the pinnacle of luxury driving, after all, so we didn’t really expect anything less.
Joe Haden – Lamborghini Aventador
A cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Joe Haden, who reportedly has a net worth of $20 million, is said to drive around in an orange, custom Lamborghini Aventador. Haden is currently one of the most exciting cornerbacks, after all, so it isn’t all that surprising that he’ll be skipping a few worthwhile investments for shiny and enviable toys. It’s been reported that he dropped $400,000 for the orange Lambo, but that price didn’t include all the additional luxuries he added to the car, which pictures of it make clear were a lot. And, not just that, Haden also reportedly purchased a Rolls Royce Ghost sometime in 2017, so it’s safe to say that this is a man living life to its fullest.
