They say money makes people funny, but in reality, it just creates a more swagged-out version of your old self.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is a perfect example of that. While he's still on that third-round rookie contract from 2012, he's living life like only few can say.
If winning a Super Bowl in his second season wasn't enough, he's also currently dating Ciara, and he's due for what's sure to be a record deal that'll sh*t on anything any other quarterback is getting right now.
Still, Wilson is a humble guy, and he'll never change those core values that made him successful in the first place.
He might have new cars, a new haircut and a new girl, but he's the same old Russ!
Russell Wilson came into the NFL looking to make 31 teams regret passing him up.
And in two years, he did just that by winning the Super Bowl.
His rookie salary started him around $700,000 per season...
...but now he's multi-millionaire and a completely changed man.
He dropped the "Thriller" Jheri curls (shout out to MJ).
Now, he's going for a trendy look that better suits his new lifestyle.
And that lifestyle includes photo shoots on top of the Space Needle...
Team trips to Hawaii during the offseason...
...and he doesn't fly private; he flies with the pilots.
Sure, he mutually split with his college sweetheart and wife.
But, it looks like he's doing just fine for himself these days.
Because now he's in the White House calling shots.
At this point, he's basically a movie star!
And one of those damn male models.
Russell's offseason includes playing baseball for the Rangers...
Business talks with Arianna Huffington...
...and making sure he continues to expand his network.
That includes R&B stars like Usher...
...and legends like Jeets.
He also takes care of his teammates and buys them gifts because they deserve it.
Don't worry, he buys new cars and takes care of himself, too.
There isn't another player in the NFL quite like Russell Wilson...
One who will always motivate those around him...
...and one who's so grateful for his blessings.
Plus, he can definitely do the Carlton dance...
And don't forget, he will steal your chick.
