The Frugal Stars Playing for the Washington Redskins

Just because you make millions, that doesn’t mean you should blow it all on cars. Or at least, that seems to be the lesson of some of the young stars on the Washington Redskins.

Two-time pro bowl running back Alfred Morris, who makes a base salary of $1.5 million this year, has taken to riding a bike to work and leaving it in his reserved parking space. On days when it’s too cold or otherwise inconvenient to cycle to the facility, Morris switches to a splashier ride: a 1991 Mazda 626, which he drove up from Florida as a rookie in 2012.

That’s smart, especially in a sport where it probably makes sense to get out before your brain turns into a sponge. [Wall Street Journal]
