The salary of at least 34 NFL players is roughly $20 million. While the top names rake in as much as $45 million annually, even the lowest-paid ones make $660,000 a year (not a bad deal!). When you are making that kind of money, you can buy quite literally anything. And the one thing all NFL players like the most is the ride that brings them to the game!
Brock Osweiler: Bugatti Veyron
The first thing Brock Osweiler did after signing a whopping $72 million contract (and $37 million guaranteed) with Houston Texas was purchasing a Bugatti Veyron! Guess when you have that kind of money, buying a 7-figure car is just like doing groceries at the nearest Walmart.
With an 8.0L turbo-quad W16 engine, the Veyron produces an insane 1000 horses. The 0 to 60 mph accelerating time of this beast of a vehicle is a mind-boggling 2.5 seconds!
Vernon Davis: Mercedes Maybach S600
Former San Francisco 49ers star Vernon Davis boasts one of the best car collections ever. The tight end owns a Bentley Continental GT Convertible, a Dodge Challenger, a Porsche Panamera, a Mercedes Benz S63, a BMW750i, a Mercedes Maybach S600, and an all-jet black Ford F150 truck.
What’s even amazing is the fact that almost all of his cars are custom-made. With so many options available, choosing which car to ride can be difficult. But turns out Davis has pre-associated his cars with events. For special occasions, he loves to ride his Maybach S600.
Larry Fitzgerald: 1968 Dodge Charger
If there’s one thing Larry Fitzgerald is known for, it’s speed – both in the field and out of it! Fitzgerald loves speed and maybe that’s why he owns some of the sickest cars there are. From a Mercedes-Bens SL550 to a Range Rover to a customized BMW 745i, Fitzgerald has them all.
To top it off, the NFL star also owns a 1986 Dodge Charger. This 375 hp V8 vehicle has enough power at the crank to pull out a 0-60 in 4.9 seconds!
Antonio Brown: Custom Rolls-Royce Wraith
Having played for New England Patriots, Oakland Raiders, and Pittsburgh Steelers, Antonio Brown sure can afford any 6-figure vehicle. Once NFL’s highest-paid wide receiver, Brown’s garage is full of luxury cars, including three top Rolls-Royce vehicles – Wraith, Phantom, and Ghost.
Brown has customized all three Rolls in black and yellow to represent the colors of his team Pittsburgh Steelers. The Wraith is probably the sickest of the three – not just because it’s the fastest Rolls-Royce, but also due to its dramatic customization.
Aaron Donald: Karma Revero
When Aaron Donald signed a 6-year, $135m extension contract with the Los Angeles Rams, he used his $40m signing bonus and $50m guaranteed money for two things. First, he bought his parents a nice mansion and allowed them to retire! Second, he treated himself by buying a nice car.
The defensive tackle got a Karma Revero delivered to his place the same day he signed the lucrative contract. This $130,000 beauty can be thought of as a luxurious version of Tesla. It is electric, but has a traditional engine as well!
Colin Kaepernick: Jaguar F-Type
The former quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick’s love affair with the Jaguars is no secret. As a sponsor for the British car manufacturer, Kaepernick has been repeatedly spotted with a number of Jaguars, particularly a maroon F-Type V8-S.
The $90,000 convertible is not just beauty, it’s a beast as well! It spits out 575 horses, accelerates to 60 mph from rest in 3.5 seconds, and does a quarter-mile in just over 11 seconds!
Tom Brady: Rolls-Royce Ghost

Even if you aren’t a big fan of the NFL, chances are you must have heard of Tom Brady. Hailed as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, Brady has got some really sick cars in his garage – the most famous of which is an all-black Rolls-Royce Ghost.
The $255,000 RR Ghost Black Badge is darker than you can ever imagine. I mean, you can hardly see this car in a poorly lit parking lot. From its charcoal black body paint to tinted windows to tire rims, the car looks pretty dope, to say the least!
Joe Haden: Lamborghini Murcielago
Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Joe Haden has classic taste in cars, as is apparent from his Lamborghini Murcielago. It ain’t just a Murcielago, it has some pretty sick red and white wheels too.
As for the car itself, this half a million dollar raging bull is one of the best cars to ever come from Italy. The 6.5L V12 is one of the best sounding engines of all time and puts out 661 hp, enough to catapult the car to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds.
Joe Flacco: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
When Joe Flacco won Super Bowl 47 for the Baltimore Ravens, he went home with two things. A Lombardi trophy and a brand new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray.
It was the 7th generation, with both the exterior and interior in red color. Equipped with a 460 hp V8 engine, the car can easily hit speeds north of 190 mph and can catapult from 0 to 60 mph in just under 4 seconds. So, not a bad gift, I must say!
Rob Gronkowski: Mercedes Benz S63
Famously known as “Gronk”, Rob Gronkowski owns a fleet of cars. However, he’s often seen arriving at the game in his Mercedes Benz S63. Not every car can haul a 6’6″, 265lb man in luxury, maybe that’s why he has customized this car to perfectly suit himself.
The car maxes out at 577 hp and has a one-of-its-kind rear entertainment system. The New England’s tight end has even installed a mini-fridge in the back. We told you, not every car can haul an all-star like Gronk.
Drew Brees: Bugatti Veyron
Drew Brees’ love for fast cars is no secret. He has had run-ins with law enforcement more than once. As if it’s not enough, Brees has even been in some accidents that could’ve been fatal. But none of this has put a dent in his affection for fast cars.
The New Orleans Saints quarterback owns five luxurious cars, including a Bugatti Veyron worth $2.2 million dollars. Well, that explains everything! When you have a car that can do 0-60 in under three minutes, it’s hard to keep your foot off the accelerator!
Cam Newton: 1970 Oldsmobile 442
Carolina Panther’s quarterback Cam Newton doesn’t have a thing for the fastest cars, he’s more inclined towards classiest cars – such as this 1970 Oldsmobile 442.
Nicknamed “Goldsmobile,” this car is probably the wackiest car on this list, or among all the cars owned by NFL players. With a 24 karat gold plating on wheels and several body parts, a custom front grille with Panthers logo bolted on it, and a diamond stitching on the seats, it’s the most badass a car can look!
Jamaal Charles: Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2
Jamaal Charles is the proud owner of a customized Lamborghini Gallardo LP 550-2, with an all-black interior and a mint blue exterior. The Gallardo is one of the most popular Lambos. Though it’s not the fastest of the bunch, it’s a highly balanced model and an absolute pleasure to drive.
Being Denver Bronco’s running back, Charles knows the importance of speed on and off the field. Maybe that’s why he loves to cruise around in a vehicle that can go 0 to 60 in less than four seconds.
Frank Gore: Maserati Quattroporte
Frank Gore boasts the honor of being the third all-time leading rusher in NFL history. The 16-year veteran of the league has played for such clubs as Buffalo Bulls and San Francisco 49ers. When not playing, Gore is flashing the collection of his super-expensive vehicles.
Gore is often seen in his custom Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead coupe – with an all-black interior and 26′ Forgiato wheels. When not in the mood of flashing his customized RR, he’s cruising in his burgundy Maserati Quattroporte.
Russell Wilson: 1959 MG MGA Roadster
Among the many cars owned by Russell Wilson, a 1959 MG MGA Roadster stands out. It’s not because of its power – as this 1.5-liter twin cam vehicle can barely manage 108hp – but because of its looks and history.
The two-door and two-seater car used to be Britain’s fastest car in the 60s. Its long hood and sweeping backside look dope even today. Driving this car is more about joy than speed – and this is something Seattle Seahawk’s quarterback and his singer wife Ciara perfectly know!
Reggie Bush: 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500
Reggie Bush is famous for spending outrageous sums of money on his cars and owns as many as five ultra-expensive luxury cars – including a $450,000 Lamborghini Aventador.
Besides the luxury vehicles, the current free agent has also been spotted numerous times in vintage vehicles. Reggie’s 1967 Shelby Mustang GT500 is worth mentioning here. Thanks to an incredible 760 hp 5.2L supercharged V8 under the hood, the car can pull out a 0-60 sprint in just 3.3 seconds.
Marion Barber: 1971 Chevrolet Impala
Marion Barber owns a beautiful and highly customized 1971 Chevrolet Impala. The athlete has reportedly spent a whopping $130,000 on the interior and exterior enhancements of this car, with the interior suede and paint job alone costing $25,000.
Both the interior and exterior of the car are customized to a bright yellow color. To compliment that, it features 24″ rims made of 24 karat gold. The entertainment audio system is also customized and one-of-its-kind!
Jameis Winston: Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG
Unlike most of his NFL peers who have a thing for fast cars, Jameis Winston is more inclined towards off-roaders. And not just any off-roader, the ultimate ones! The quarterback for the New Orleans Saints owns a G-Wagon. Then again, not just your ordinary G63, but the AMG version!
Besides its formidable presence, its specs are also out of the ordinary. With a 4L V8 Biturbo that produces 577 horses at the crank and catapults this giant of a vehicle to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, you can’t ask more from a price tag of $156,000!
Odell Beckham Jr: Mercedes C63 S AMG Coupe
Odell Beckham Jr. has several feathers in his cap. He’s a sponsor for Nike and has been featured in Forbe’s “30 under 30.” So it will be safe to say that the NFL star can easily afford any car.
Beckham’s collection includes several 6-figure cars. The most noteworthy vehicles are a red Ferrari, a McLaren MP4-12C, a Mercedes-Benz C63 S AMG Coupe, and a Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupé – that he frequently flaunts on his Instagram.
Aaron Rodgers: Mercedes Benz SLS AMG
The quarterback of the Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers got an MPV award and a brand new 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible when he won Super Bowl 45. The car remained one of the favorites of the quarterback, but it’s not the only vehicle present in his garage.
Rodgers owns a number of expensive cars, notably a Mercedes Benz SLS AMG. With a 6.2L M159 DOHC V8 under the hood, this car spits out 563 hp and can manage 0-60 in mere 3.3 seconds.
Ezekiel Elliot: Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7
The running back of the Dallas Cowboys, Ezekiel Elliot owns a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray C7. Even though this car isn’t super expensive like the ones owned by most of his fellow players, it does the job for Elliot. At $60,000, it is still an upgrade from the NFL player’s previous cars.
Elliot has frequently been seen riding this car to the game. With a 6.2L V8 capable of producing 455 horses, the Stingray C7 can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds!
Julio Jones: Ferrari 458 Spider
Julio Jones loves to ride in style. He’s been spotted numerous times cruising around Atlanta in his majestic Ferrari 458 Spider. The exterior of the convertible is all white, the wheel rims are red with a white lining on the circumference, and the left side features a red Ferrari horse.
Not only is this car beautiful, but it also packs the punch. With a 4.5L V8 engine spitting 570 horses under the hood, the wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons can easily accelerate from rest to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds!
Marcell Dareus: Ferrari F430
Marcell Dareus has owned an elegant Ferrari F430 ever since the 2011 NFL draft. With 4.3L V8 power, the vehicle produces well over 400 horses. The defensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills recently had it modified to give it an even amazing look!
The car has gold Savini Wheels, a red velvet wrap, a tan leather interior, and an iPad Mini-controlled JL Audio system. Dareus’ Ferrari features so much soft-touch material in the interior that the athlete has nicknamed it “Fur-rari!”
A.J. Green: Porsche Panamera 4S
A.J Green loves cruising in his Porsche Panamera 4S once he’s off the field. The wide receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals has a thing for fast cars, as is evident from his fast ride.
The Panamera 4S is an ultimate mix of power and luxury. With a twin-turbo 2.9L V6 under the hood, this all-wheel-drive beast of a car can emit 440 horses and can take the wide receiver from zero to sixty in just 3.6 short seconds.
Matt Forte: Ferrari 458 Italia
Like the wide receiver for the Atlanta Falcons, Matt Forte also owns a Ferrari 458. But unlike Julio’s Spider, Forte owns the Italia version of the car. Another difference from Julio’s ride and most other NFL players is that Forte has kept his vehicle in an almost original condition.
With an all-red exterior, the usual carbon-fiber elements, and perfectly tinted windows, the running back for the New York Jets seems to love his ride. Also, the vehicle is more than just looks. With a 4.5L V8 under the hood, it does 0-60 in an unbelievable 3.1 seconds!
Amari Cooper: BMW i8
Wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys Amari Cooper signed an extension worth $100m in March 2020, out of which he was guaranteed $60m. Turns out, you can afford any car when you have this much cash lying around in your bank!
Cooper owns many sick cars but he has frequently used a BMW i8 to come to his training sessions. The car features a 1.5L turbocharged I3 gas engine with an 11.6-kWh battery pack and two electric motors, all of which combine into a 369 hp output and 0-60 time of just over 4 seconds.
Pat O’Donnell: McLaren 570S
Pat O’Donnell, the punter for the Chicago Bears, is often sighted arriving at his training camp in a sleek grey McLaren 570S coupe. Despite being an entry-level vehicle in the McLaren Sport Series lineup, this British sportscar has got everything you could want from a fast car!
With a 3.8L twin-turbo V8 producing 563 horses under the hood, this car can do the 0-60 sprint in just around 3 seconds and a quarter-mile in just over 10 seconds!
Darrelle Revis: Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
Darrelle Revis has been a Land Rover ambassador for a long time. The former cornerback is often seen driving Land Rovers even before they are available to the general public. One of his noteworthy picks includes a bright red Range Rover Evoque.
Revis allegedly selected the color to stay in the limelight, though he admitted he’d be resorting to tinted windows to avoid too much public attention. Powered by a 246 hp turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder, this vehicle can catapult to 60 mph in 7.1 seconds, which is not bad for a vehicle of this size.
Delanie Walker: Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG
Free-agent Delanie Walker has kept several cars over the years but one that has a special place in his heart is his all-black 2008 Mercedes-Benz CL63 AMG.
It was one of 220 rare Piano Edition cars and Walker liked it so much that he called it his ‘Batmobile.’ The NFL star had it customized with Flowmasters and a turbo kit to make it way louder than a regular Merc, much like a beefed-up Camaro.
Earl Thomas: McLaren 600LT
Former Seattle Seahawks star Earl Thomas went on to become a free agent before signing a four-year $55m contract with the Baltimore Ravens. Thomas has enough money to spend on practically anything – which explains why he has several supercars in his garage.
The two most noteworthy vehicles owned by the NFL star include the Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster and the widely acclaimed McLaren 600LT. The latter with its twin-turbocharged 3.8L 592 hp V8 seems to be his favorite ride though!
Darren McFadden: Buick Centurion
Darren McFadden is famous for his (well, ridiculously) customized Buick Centurion. The vehicle awkwardly combines a green interior with a purple exterior. What’s even bizarre is the usage of 32″ Asanti wheels, which are also painted in a combo of green and purple.
The car also has a metal dash, custom Wilwood breaks, custom stereo, and custom 15″ suspension. Often the center of controversy on social media, Darren’s ride is one of the most modified celeb cars out there!
Brandon Marshall: Porsche 911 GT3
Brandon Marshall owns a Porsche 911 GT3 with an interesting back story. Back in 2017, when Marshall was playing as a wide receiver for New York Jets, he made a bet with Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown, wagering his ride in exchange for Brown’s uniquely customized and outrageously expensive Rolls Royce Wraith.
Brown won the bet by finishing with more receiving yards in the season. However, he let Marshall keep the car and told him he could donate the $130,000 financial equivalent of the ride to Brown’s mental health charity instead.
Marshawn Lynch: Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch has been in the spotlight during the five years he remained a part of the club. His power-packed running style and his formidable ability to break tackles and run over defenders earned him the title of “Beast Mode.”
Well, turns out, Lynch is the same raging bull off the field too. He likes to move around in a 700 hp V12 Lamborghini Aventador Roadster – a vehicle that perfectly mimics Lynch’s performance in the field and can do 0-60 in less than 3 seconds.
Michael Strahan: Porsche 911 GT3 RS
After being Pro Football Hall of Famer, Michael Strahan is now an equally successful television personality. Michael, who played all of his 15 NFL seasons with the New York Giants, is a hypercar enthusiast.
His collection features several 6-figure flashy automobiles, including a McLaren Senna, a Porsche Carrera GT, a Ford GT, and an extremely rare Mercedes Benz SLR McLaren Roadster. His daily driver though is an orange Porsche 911 GT3 RS.
Antrel Rolle: Maserati GranTurismo
Former Arizona Cardinals defensive back Antrel Rocelious Rolle, like his other NFL peers, is a big fan of hypercars and has been frequently spotted driving his all-red Maserati GranTurismo.
With a Ferrari-built 4.7L V8 engine under the hood, the GranTurismo puts out an impressive 454 hp. Thanks to its grand-scale engine from Ferrari, the vehicle can accelerate to 60 mph from a standstill position in 4.7 seconds, and can easily hit speeds north of 185 mph.
Thomas Jones: Rolls Royce Phantom
Former NFL running back and now an actor, Thomas Jones can easily afford any car. Maybe that’s why his garage has seen such cars as Ferrari 360 Spider, Range Rover HSE, BMW 645i Coupe, and Bentley Continental GT Coupe.
One of his favorite rides though is a 2004 Rolls-Royce Phantom, which was uniquely customized with a Ferrari-red paint on the exterior and white leather seats in the interior. Explaining the reason behind his affection for the vehicle, Jones said: “You can’t drive this car if you’re not in the mood for attention.”
Patrick Willis: Aston Martin DB9
After playing his entire 8-year career with the San Francisco 49ers, Patrick Willis amassed enough wealth to buy several 6-figure supercars. Known for his agility, quickness, and power, the linebacker loves all cars that have these attributes.
Willis reportedly had the V12 engine of his favorite ride, Aston Martin DB9, customized to exceed the car’s maximum 183 mph performance. The original car comes with a 5.9L V12 that produces 540 horses and catapults to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds. But that wasn’t good enough for the NFL star!
Calvin Johnson: Porsche Panamera Turbo
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson has always played with lightning speeds and maybe that’s why he prefers a car that can do the same off the field.
One of Johnson’s favorite rides is a first-generation Porsche Panamera Turbo – which is one of the most powerful cars the German automaker has ever produced for the general public. Its 4.8L V8 can catapult the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, while also carrying 3 other passengers!
Jay Cutler: Audi R8 GT
Former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler drives a uniquely-tailored Audi R8 GT, with modified wheels and a white and orange paint job. This sweet ride is a limited-edition vehicle and packs a strong punch with its V10 engine!
The 5.2L V10 FSI engine of the R8 can produce up to 600 horses at the crank. It enables the car to hit 60 mph from a standing position in just 2.9 seconds and reach an insane top speed of 207 mph!
Alfred Morris: Mazda 626
Alfred Morris can buy tens of 6-figure luxury cars at once, but he’s a humble soul. The NFL star drives a 1991 Mazda 626 that he bought for $2 (Yes, TWO Dollars!!!!) during his junior year at Florida Atlantic University. Nicknamed “Bentley,” the 626 isn’t expensive by any means, but it’s extremely rich in memories. When the news of Morris’ 626 went viral, Washington, D.C. Mazda dealers rejuvenated its mechanical systems to extend its life by as many years as possible.
They also added a few carefully chosen modern safeties and conveniences in the interior, including remote power door locks, an alarm system, a complete sound insulation layer, a backup camera, a 7-inch Pioneer touch screen, navigation system, and Rockford-Fosgate speakers. To match the nickname, they even remodeled its entire interior to match that of a Bentley. The 626 might still not be as luxurious and attractive as other cars on this list, but it’s definitely our favorite!
