Today we had meetings and the receivers and quarterbacks stayed for extra film, so everybody else got out before us. After I walked to the locker room and my phone rang....

He drives a Maserati? Kind of high end considering him being on a rookie contract and not having established himself as a proven player yet.

I think this kind of stuff is awesome.
Again, thanks for the reads Singer.
I love the chemistry this team seems to have and that is one prime reason I am more excited about the potential of thei team then I have been in a long time.
I'm excited every year but there is always that glimpse of doubt.
This year is the exception.
I am usually nervous against crappy teams.
I never take any games for granted because it is the NFL and anything can happen.
But I expect the Vikings not only to beat bad teams but destroy them this year.

I like this stuff too...keeps the energy level high, but lightens up the tension a little.

Remember, Sid was a 2nd-rounder.
Yes, he has "millions", but not ludicrous millions.

Is he hurting for cash?
Hopefully not.
Does he have stupid money to toss away on a $100,000+ car?
I guess, but that's a dumbass thing to spend money on, IMHO.

My point is he doesn't have Stafford - or even Peterson - type money.

So about 2.7 million. After taxes it's probably closer to 1.5 million. A new maserati starts at about $120,000. So who knows, he could easily afford the car, but at the same time if you expect that money to last the rest of your life(which he should because his football career could end at any time) then a fancy car probably isn't the best investment. His money though, if he wants to drive a maserati good for him.

He will have enough money to retire and living comfortably

Maybe, maybe not. If he screws up a knee tomorrow he might never get another NFL check. 1.5million when you buy a nice house, car, vacations, etc.
He wouldn't be the first NFL player to go broke.
