Alfred Morris Calls his $2 26 year old mazda "The Bentley'
The Bentley did get bit of a makeover to help it continue shuttling Morris to and from practice. In 2013, Mazda offered to refurbish the car for Morris, and he readily accepted. The company gutted the sedan, stripping it down to its skeleton and installing a new engine, new interiors and a GPS.
After making the move to Dallas in 2016 and signing an even more lucrative contract, Morris held on to Bentley. "It's always going to be my baby and I'm going to drive it 'til she dies," he told the Cowboys' blog 5 Points Blue.
"Hard work and humility are Morris' family values," 5 Points Blue explains. "Driving the old car is a way of reminding himself to stay humble."
Despite earning nearly $20 million last year, Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins chooses to live in his parents' basement with his wife during the summer and drive a dented GMC Savana passenger van that he bought from his grandma for $5,000.
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck, one of the highest-paid athletes in the NFL, still uses a flip phone, and free agent Ryan Broyles chooses to live on a modest $60,000 a year.
