There’s a long history of NFL players going broke after spending all of their money living it big during their brief football careers but Dolphins rookie quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is trying to avoid being one of those players.
While speaking to GQ, Tagovailoa says he doesn’t plan to spend a dime of his $30 million contract but instead is going to live off the money he makes off endorsements.
“I’m gonna be living off of my marketing money, so the endorsement money that I get, and then everything else is just put to the side,” “So the money that I’m making from my contract, that’s put to the side, so none of that’s gonna be seen.”
Tua has still been able to live comfortably with the money he’s made from endorsements so far and has bought a $1.65 million home in Miami, $200,000 on three cars, an $80,000 Escalade for his mom, and a $10,000 Rolex for his dad.
I would say I’m happy with what I spent it on,” “It wasn’t more so me when I thought of the purchases. I thought of everyone that would be involved in the purchase as well, except maybe one of them.”
Seems like Tua has a good head on his shoulders and is going to be fine financially longterm no matter what happens on the football.
