The NFL rookie took a big hit last year with the latest CBA. Gone are the days of first round draft picks like Sam Bradford making $78 million dollars over six years. Instead, Cam Newton, the first overall pick in 2011 signed with the Panthers for a "measly" $22 million dollars over four years. Poor Cam, he was one year too late for the really, really big money. We have a sneaking suspicion he'll get by along with most other first round draft pick contracts.
Let's keep things in perspective. Most NFL rookies will make more money than any of us will ever dream of. What do they do with it? Do they buy dream cars or houses? Do they take care of their families? What about the bank?
We asked some of the biggest stars of the game both past and present how they spent that first NFL paycheck. Surprises? You'll have to watch the video.
