In the NFL some of these players sign million dollar contracts and get happy about their quick money but don’t think to put it anyway for a rainy day. I personally know multiple NFL players from Baltimore and DC that have to move back home with parents or get a job after the NFL.

NFL players have the potential to earn some serious cash. In a single season, evenbench players earn more money than the average lawyer or doctor (average NFL salary is $1.9 million). There’s a joke among those who play in America’s professional football league, that the NFL really stands for “Not For Long.” That’s often associated with the idea that people can find themselves out of football in a startlingly short amount of time. But, that also very much applies to the idea that, for all the millions players earn during their playing days, that money can evaporate very, very quickly once their playing days are over.
