Best Cars From The NFL’s Uppermost Echelon Part II
Time to lace up the driving cleats
We are now well into the middle of the 2021 NFL season, with seven weeks played and ten to go we wanted to slow the drive to the end zone down a little and talk cars. Namely the cars and collections of some of Football’s brightest stars.
Again, we have to start with the king of passing yards, the czar of Super Bowl rings Tom Brady, whose collection we only touched on in part one of this series. Love him or hate him there is no denying that the man knows his way around a scrimmage line, and also it turns out a dream car garage. His collection of super cars is worth upwards of $10 million.

It includes some of the most expensive cars in the world like the Aston Martin Valkyrie, a super hybrid that can crank out over 1000hp and do 200mph. Then there’s the very 007ish Aston Martin DB11 the spiritual successor to the iconic DB5. To round out his automotive dream team there’s a Bughatti, McLaren, Ferrari, and more. It’s good to be the king.

Then we take you to Russell Wilson who might be best known as the husband to Ciara, and might be second best known as the super bowl winning QB of the Seattle Seahawks. However, what he should be known for is his Mercedes-Benz G-Class, a whopping SUV priced at a whopping $119,900 (at least, after all of Wilson’s upgrades.)

See, while the G-Class might come standard with a twin-turbocharged V8 engine, Wilson spiced his up with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter V12 engine. His little buggy is able to push out 621 horses and 738 pound-feet of torque. The almost 6,000 pound SUV is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 in about five seconds, pretty much making it the Marshawn Lynch of cars.
We’d be remiss to not also talk about Antonio Brown and his $300,000-plus Rolls Royce. Brown’s love for football might only be matched by his love for super luxury vehicles and his numerous Rolls Royces that he’s accrued throughout his career is the proof. However, the jewel in his crown has to be the Ghost, which Rolls Royce gave to Brown right before Super Bowl L.

But, our NFL car enthusiast MVP award has to go to the indomitable Alfred Morris formally of the New York Giants. Moving in the complete opposite direction of the glitz and glamour displayed by his colleagues his collection consists of his 1991 Mazda 626, where a mass produced inline 4 cylinder engine churns out a not-so hefty 145 hp.

Gotta hand it to the guy, he has made a reported $8 million playing football since 2012, but his love for the workhorse that got him to that level has remained intact. Now, there’s definitely a certain amount of spendthrift-ness going on here. But he’s a millionaire, and he can afford at least one much nicer car. Which ultimately leads us to believe this is car enthusiast’s love for a car, a love for a car so deep that it transcends fame, fortune, and pretty much anything else. Rock on, Mr. Morris.
