The 10 best cars driven by NFL superstars
Prepare for a bit of envy
So fun fact: NFL stars make a boatload of money. I know, crazy right? Of course, we all know this, but what exactly do these NFL superstars spend all that money on?
Well there's the cars, the partying, and their families, but what we want to know more about here at DriveTribe is the cars. So here are the coolest cars that 10 NFL superstars own that you may have not known about before. Remember that you can win a share of up to $25m this Thanksgiving by playing in any paid football contest with DraftKings.
1) Michael Strahan
If you're into New York sports, there's a pretty good chance you know this guy. Michael Strahan was an absolute terror for the New York Giants, striking fear into opposing quarterbacks. He's 5th on the all time sacks list with 141.5. Strahan retired from the NFL in 2007, but has gone on to have a wildly successful career and is currently a co-host of Good Morning America.
But off the field he's quite the car nut. And that includes an impressive collection of cool cars like the Porsche 911 GT3 RS you see above. Strahan has also recently bought a McLaren Senna to add to his extensive car collection.
2) Aaron Rodgers
The Green Bay Packers have has some legendary quarterbacks over the years such as Bart Starr and Brett Favre. But Aaron Rodgers may go down as the best ever with the impressive resume he's building. Rodgers went to Cal for college, was drafted by the Packers, sat on the bench, then lit up the league once Favre moved on.

Rodgers also loves his cars and he owns a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG which, like Rodgers, will go down as an all-time great. His is red though, not the silver pictured above.
3) Antonio Brown
Antonio Brown has been one of the best, albeit more troubled, wide receivers over the past 10 years. Best known for his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Brown amassed insane records for catches and yards.
Brown, along with everyone else on this list, loves cars. The one featured most prominently on his Instagram as of late is this frosted gray Lamborghini Huracan. Such a sick ride! He also has a Rolls Royce Ghost in his collection.
4) Odell Beckham Jr.
Beckham, better known as OBJ, rose to superstardom with the New York Giants. Unlike Strahan above, OBJ has not stayed in the city that never sleeps as he was traded to the Cleveland Browns in 2019. You may best know OBJ for making one the NFL's all-time insane catches with only three fingers.
Since going to Cleveland, whose colors are orange and brown, OBJ has bought a Rolls Royce Cullinan that's a matching orange.
5) Larry Fitzgerald
One of the most respected wide outs of all time is Larry Fitzgerald. Not only is he respected, but he's one of the best to ever play the game at the position. Fitz has spent his whole career with the Arizona Cardinals and has made 11 Pro Bowls.

Fiztgerald reportedly drives a Mercedes-Benz SL which is one of the best sporty grand tourers money can buy. It's not flashy but it's sturdy, dependable, and great. The perfect car-parallel to Fitz's game.
6) Tom Brady
I have to admit, it's extremely weird seeing TB in a Tampa Bay Bucs jersey this season. Like jarringly weird. Brady, for those that have been under a rock, spent his entire career up to this point with the New England Patriots and racked up six Super Bowl wins. He'll go down as one of the top 5 Quarterbacks of all time and many think he is the best ever. But even being in Tampa, Brady is still crushing it and the Bucs are playoff contenders once again.
On the road, Brady actually partnered with Aston Martin to make a one-of-a-kind Vanquish S Volante decked out by AM's "Q" division for special custom vehicles. There are only 12 examples in the world, to signify Brady's number. Brady doesn't own one as this was a branding co-op between AM and TB, but it's reported that Brady drives around in a Jeep Grand Cherokee due to the room he needs for his large family.

7) Russell Wilson
Russell Wilson was the catalyst for the Seattle Seahawks to turn into perennial Super Bowl contenders. Before Russ got there, the Seahawks were always so close, but could never get over the hump with the talent they had. Wilson changed that and it included a huge Super Bowl win over the then Payton Manning led Denver Broncos in 2014.

Wilson drives around in one of the more posh SUVs out there, the Mercedes-Benz G wagon. G's can get up there in price, but Wilson's is reportedly around $135,000. Not a bad way to cruise.
8) JJ Watt
JJ Watt burst on to the scene as one of the most feared defensive linemen in recent memory. Injuries have plagued his last two to three seasons, but anytime he's on the field he always needs to be accounted for by the offense. A true disruptor.

Watt is enormous and an athletic freak. At 6'5" he needs a ton of space. Which is why he chooses the Ford F-150 Platinum to get around. Big truck for a big dude.
9) Patrick Mahomes
Patrick Mahomes is quickly becoming one of the best Quarterbacks in the NFL. He just led his Kansas City Chiefs to a Super Bowl win and his future is extremely bright with his next-level talent and rocket arm.

So what does one of the fastest rising QBs in the league roll in? Well, a Ferrari that's superfast of course! This Ferrari 812 Superfast was what Mahomes purchased in July of 2020 for a cool $340,000.
10) Cam Newton
Arguably the best mobile quarterback of all time from a physicality perspective, Cam Newton is a specimen. A freak athlete, Newton took the Carolina Panthers to a Super Bowl appearance and hopes to do it again with his new team the New England Patriots.
Newton has a bunch of rides, but maybe his most well known is this 24-karat gold plated 1970 Oldsmobile 442 Cutlass. Cam is very flashy and this car matches that perfectly.
