So you're selected 5th in the 2010 NFL draft. In a few months, you'll sign a contract that will guarantee you in the neighborhood of $25 million. A signing bonus will be attached. You'll be a 22 or 23 year old with more money than 99% of the world can ever dream about.
What's the first thing you're going to buy?
Well, as Jason Whitlock pointed out yesterday, Gerald McCoy walked into Radio City Music Hall wearing $100,000 in jewelry (Whitlock's estimation, not mine) while Eric Berry was busy planning to buy....
Well, the newest Camaro of course.
"I just really want to get the 2010 Camaro," the newest Chief Eric Berry told reporters last night. "I love Chevy. That’ll be the first thing [I buy] maybe."
"Camarohead" has been re-defined. To be fair, Mr. Berry said he's already taken care of his Mom buying her a car.
The next move?
Finding a "nice comfortable" home in Kansas City, which shouldn't be hard since Kansas City itself is nice and comfortable.
"I’ll be done with all that and be on to training camp."
Good start, Mr. Berry.
