We've heard a lot of stories about athletes that get paid a ton of money and, somehow, manage to urinate it all down their legs and end up with a whole lot of nothing. Witness former Minnesota Timberwolves' forward Antoine Walker, who made $110 million in his NBA career and now, somehow, doesn't have a whole heck of a lot left.
From all indications, we're not going to have to worry about hearing a story like that about Adrian Peterson in the future.
"No, I actually haven’t purchased anything yet," Peterson told Jimmy Traina on the Hot Clicks podcast. "Haven’t bought anything yet.
"I like to sit back and let my money grow, so I’m going to sit on it for a minute. Something might pop up that I want to purchase, it might be a good investment or something, I don’t know, we’ll see. As of now, I’m just watching it build up in my account.
"I gotta look out for my family … so I have to be smart about it."
It's nice to hear about someone who really seems to have their priorities straight.
Just another reason that's it's awesome to know that this guy is on our side.
