That is totally crazy.
Add him to the broke list now before he even starts out of the draft.

LOL! They all bought watches that keep terrible time. One bought a bracelet.

Run out a buy a 120k watch, before you get a job, just to make sure you are back at your 100k home 10 minutes late after the draft.

Did they buy them or were they lent to the players who just had to bring them up in interviews or do some publicity shoots etc
You often find that alot of jewellery worn at the oscars is borrowed.

I think it was Marquis Lee who was asked about his watch and he said he didn't buy it and it wasn't his.

Re: 80% of NFL players end bankrupt

I am all in favor of living it up a little bit to enjoy success, or improving your lifestyle to better yourself, but some people just don't have any clue what to do with money.

I can't remember now who it was, whether it was Heath Evans or Billy Miller, someone like that....but I remember reading an article about some minor but very hard-working Saints player like that, who was seen driving around his hometown during the off season in the same beat-up Toyota from his free agent days. I remember reading that and thinking it was awesome and smart. There is life after football, the career don't last forever.

Re: 80% of NFL players end bankrupt

Considering something like 70% of Americans live almost paycheck to paycheck from one report I read it's not all that surprising to me. During the government shutdown which was 2 weeks I had two co-workers flat broke. You would think it would have been a wake-up call but nope. They went right back to eating out for lunch several days a week and buying Starbucks. It had no effect.

The NFL already gives them financial classes from my understanding so not sure what can be done. Some people are just prone to spending, it's part of their DNA.

Bryant McKinnie might just be added to the list.
