Football Player & Their Cars | Footballer Cars

Some of the wealthiest sportsmen today ply their trade in the National Football League, and most of them drive incredible cars.

There is no doubting that professional football in America is a booming market. Revenues during the 2018-2019 NFL season surpassed $16 billion, representing a 5% increase over the previous season. These figures are likely to rise further, with a revenue target of $25 billion set for 2027.

These NFL stars live lives commensurate with their enhanced position, including lavish mansions and the obligatory supercar garage. It is the ultimate indulgence for many of them. Here’s a list of NFL stars who made it big and are not afraid to show it off in the form of exotic autos …all except one.

1. Frank Gore – Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead

Frank Gore is a 16-year NFL veteran who has played for teams such as the San Francisco 49ers and, most recently, the Buffalo Bulls. In November 2019, he became the League’s third all-time leading rusher. When he’s not playing, he lets his flashy cars speak for him, particularly this Phantom Drophead with a bespoke all-black interior and 26′ Forgiato wheels.

2. Tom Brady – Aston Martin DB11

In 2017, Aston Martin chose to capitalise on Brady’s celebrity by teaming up with him to create a limited edition $360,000 Aston Martin Convertible. The company did not give him any of the 12 automobiles produced, but we’re sure Tom didn’t mind. His expensive car collection already includes an Aston Martin, the beautiful DB11.

3. Michael Strahan – Porsche 911 GT3 RS

Michael has always been outspoken about his passion for showy autos. His collection includes a Porsche Carrera GT, a Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren Roadster, and a McLaren Senna he bought himself for his birthday. However, one of his favourite cars is this orange Porsche 911 GT3 RS, which he describes as the finest for everyday car.

4. Amari Cooper – BMW i8

The Dallas Cowboys certainly know how to make a dramatic entrance. He is known to show up for training in this $112,000 plug-in hybrid sportscar on a regular basis. BMW just confirmed that manufacture of the i8 will cease in April 2020. We’re not sure what Amari thinks about it.

5. Aaron Rodgers – Mercedes Benz SLS AMG

Aaron began his career in college football in California, where he established multiple career passing records before being taken by the Green Bay Packers in the 2005 NFL Draft. He has had a distinguished professional career, and when he is not playing football, he maintains his adrenaline levels by driving his red SLS AMG speed car.

6. Julio Jones – Ferrari 458 Spyder

Julio Jones of the Atlanta Falcons has more receiving yards than any other player in the league since his debut in 2011. He has also amassed a fortune, allowing him to indulge his passion for fast automobiles. This Ferrari 458 Spyder with unique livery and expensive Fogiarto wheels is one of the more eye-catching vehicles in his collection.

7. Marshawn Lynch – Lamborghini Aventador

Marshawn Lynch spent the most of his career as a running back for the Seattle Seahawks. Tough as a bull, he maintains his frightening demeanour off the field with his over 700 bhp V12 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster. This naturally aspirated supercar can reach 60 mph in less than three seconds from a standstill.

8. Brandon Marshall – Porsche 911 GT3

The American Football Wide Receiver once bet Antonio Brown that if Brown had more receiving yards than him, he would relinquish his beloved Porsche. He lost the wager, but Brown graciously allowed him to keep the car and informed him he could donate the monetary equivalent to a charity instead.

9. Earl Thomas – McLaren 600LT

Earl Thomas became a free agent after leaving the Seattle Seahawks, and just before the league season began in March 2019, he signed a four-year, $55 million contract with the Baltimore Ravens. That should help him keep his supercar obsession alive. His collection includes a Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster and, more recently, a McLaren 600LT.
