Making it in the NFL definitely has some perks. Besides everyone chanting and raving your name, the paychecks that begin rolling in, is definitely worth it. Most of the players in the NFL will make more money than I'll ever probably make in my lifetime. But with the more money you make, you definitely have to invest in it and save it for the future.
Sometimes, while watching football, I think about what the stars spent their first check on. Was it a house? A Car? If It was me,I would buy a car and a house, invest in stocks and bonds, and then save the rest. But when you're fortunate enough like today's football players, having endorsements with Adidas, Nike, etc money isn't sacred and it comes and comes.
What would you do with your first NFL check?!?
