I remember he posted a pic of a car on instagram once and someone commented on how hes gonna be broke. He laughed at the guy and said something like "they think im spending my football money" implying he tucks away that money and spends it from other avenues. what they are? no idea.

How do you know cj hasn't invested wisely? The entire assumption on him spending his fortune is based off of this pic and statistics on OTHER athletes. He could have doubled his money for all we know.

We don't know, and expensive cars while not great investments they aren't exactly throwing money away. However conspicuous consumption might be an indication of other financial concerns.

I don't think it's unreasonable to wonder how he's spending his money based on the pics and the general trend with pro athletes. It's not like he was throwing out Smitty-esque quotes.

-- On his house being on the market and what that means: "I think it's important that people realize I am not packing my bags. As far as why my house is for sale, we built this huge house and we just don't have any business living in it. It seemed like a great idea, and then we moved into this big house.
"We started cringing at all that space we had. For me, it was a little bit vain that I have this big house with this big yard. People saw my house was on sale and said it was me sending a message. Really the message I sent was to my kids: Dad made a mistake. This isn't how we are supposed to live. This isn't what I should be projecting. If we don't do this now, what incentive do I give my kids to reach for? You make a lot of money and then you go blow it? I don't want to be a statistic. I want to be a good steward."

I know a guy who lives 2 doors down from CJ. Trust me, he isn't blowing his money on stupid stuff. He is doing some pretty extensive home renovations, but this isn't on a 3MM home. He's a real low key guy for the most part. Good neighbor.

Sounds like a bunch of chicks in here wtf.

The man can spend his money anyway he likes, as long as he gives it his all on the field I don't care.

Good for CJ. With the money he's making he can afford several quarter million dollar cars and he'll never even miss it. The poo talkers really should just mind their own business.

charles johnson driving a car that's the equivalent of less than 2% of his signing bonus is the same as your average joe who spends 2k out of 100k on a car....

i want to be like charles.

All i'm saying is that, 75% of football players go broke after they retire. THAT'S TOO DAMN HIGH!
