Seattle Seahawks star running back Marshawn Lynch has made $49.7 million in nine NFL seasons â and has saved all of it.
In a recent segment for "The Ian & Puck Show" on 950 AM KJR in Seattle, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network was discussing recent rumblings that Lynch might retire and dropped an interesting tidbit about Lynch's thriftiness.
"Marshawn Lynch has a lot of money," Rapoport said. "He hasn't spent a dime of his actual playing money ... ever."

He’s apparently the anti-Iverson.
Hmm...Marshawn is no dummy. More power to him. I think I might be able to retire on $49 million...
He does radio commercials for a local plumbing company in Seattle.
Yes, he makes around $5 million in endorsements each year, and that’s what he’s living on.
Must be tough scraping by on $5 million a year....... LOL!
What did he pay income taxes with?
I wish these articles would disclose what the income taxes would be with the standard deduction. People come away thinking he has $49.7M.
It’s a rough life! LOL!
A lot of rookies, I hear, drop a half a million on jewelry before playing their first NFL game.
He lives in his parent’s basement.
Richard Sherman is another interesting person. Grew up in Compton, with a mother and father who rewarded him for good grades. He has a photographic memory and an MBA from Stamford (I think that’s the right college). He made the league minimum when he was drafted and now makes bank on endorsements. He’s cocky, yeah, but I think a good portion of that is an act, and he also is one of the few black people to actually come out and say that black on black crime is a big issue that the black community needs to take care of.
Well, at least he doesn't spend all his time playing Madden on his XBox. :-).
$50M will buy a lot of Skittles!
I am happy to hear that. I am now a fan.
Mama Lynch gets paid to do commercials, too! LOL!
Sherman is not THAT concerned about black crime. Otherwise, he’d get married to mother of his two kids. Bad example for inner city kids.
Same thing with Gronk in New England....has not touched team paychecks.
Even with all the money his son makes, he still gets up at 3:45 AM and goes to work every day.
Can he afford the electric bill on only $5mil? /S
He posts on FR?
