Former Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice may be dominating the news coverage, but there are men of strong character with good heads on their shoulders in the NFL. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt recently agreed to a six-year $100 million contract extension – making him the highest paid defensive player in NFL history. When asked by a reporter what he plans to do with the mega payday, his answer was pretty remarkable.
"I Googled, 'What do rich people buy?' because I don't feel like a rich person, and I don't really try to act like a rich person, so I don't know what they buy," Watt said. "I didn’t really like the stuff I saw, so I'm gonna stick with my humble lifestyle and just keep working out."
Not being particularly sports savvy, Glenn asked Pat and Stu on radio this morning about Watt's backstory because a $100 million contract is pretty life changing.
“He's a pretty down-to-earth guy,” Pat said. “I've never met by him. But, by all accounts, just an excellent character kind of person that works really, really hard.”
“I'd like to know where you get this kind of character,” Glenn concluded. “Because if $100 million doesn't change you, that's remarkable.”
