A recommendation: NFL player lives on a fraction of his salary

Hey, may we make a recommendation? This is when we point you toward something that is awesome, but isn't from Next.

We all know NFL players make a ton of money, but one who plays for the Detroit Lions thinks about his money a little differently.

Glover Quin lives on 30 percent of his take-home pay, and he uses the rest of his income to invest in publicly traded companies. His family lived on 6,000 bucks a month, about $72,000 a year - for the first three years of his career in the NFL.

And apparently, his saving ability will really pay off.

It's estimated that in about five years, he can match the money he has made in the NFL.

So, our recommendation is to read ESPN's article about Quin, and how he's made it a priority to be smart with his money.

Check out the entire blog from ESPN.

Have something cool we should check out? Let us know with #HeyNext
