    Three-time Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski, known as “Gronk,” may have been a powerhouse on the gridiron, but when it comes to his hard-earned cash, he doesn't take any chances.

    He told FOX Business that he doesn’t spend a dime of his NFL income, he strictly lives on his endorsements.

    Very rare in today’s world. The old saying of “live like others won’t now do you can live like others cant later” rings true.

    That's where you end up when you don't take the custom Rolls Royce and $250'000 game watch approach.

    I hope he invested, rather than just sticking it in a bank. Figure 25 million after taxes and his agent’s cut. 3% dividend yield gives 750 thousand gross per year, which he can reinvest (less taxes). The endorsements will fade out, but until then he can double his nest egg. NFL.com or somebody will pay him well, too. For someone his age who can handle money, the skies the limit.

    The “live like others...” I believe may have come from the Dave Ramseys teaching? We followed his program and got out of debt 3 years ago! Highly recommend, and Ill recommend him when I’m straight too!
    Trust God.

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    Probably lives within his means if he saved all these years, so $25,000,000.00 over 50 years means he spend more now than he has been?
    I have a savings account that is FDIC insured for a quarter @ 2% for at least a year. He needs more accounts than I do!
    Bet his financial adviser is probably better than mine.
    Smart guy!!
    NE/NFL/football will miss him.

    He is very generous not only with money but with his time.
