Selected by New England with a second-round pick out of Vanderbilt, Williams has joined one of the best defenses in the NFL, jumping out to an 8-1 record through the first half of the season.

With a four-year, $6.6 million contract, some might think Williams would be eager to celebrate his good fortune, but instead, he's choosing to save and invest.

Williams isn't the only athlete to commit to their savings. Jaguars quarterback and fellow rookie Gardner Minshew is notoriously frugal, driving a used Acura from his high school days rather than a splashy new car that his NFL salary could afford.

Former Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski was also a dedicated investor. Rather than spend his game checks, Gronkowski borrowed a savings strategy from late-night host Jay Leno, never spending a dime of his playing money and instead, living solely off the money made off of his endorsements.

Williams also stressed the importance of saving early, as NFL careers are notoriously short, and there was no way to guarantee that he'd land another contract in a league where turnover is so frequent.

"In the history of this league, there's a higher chance that you'll never see a second contract," he said. "If you're spending so much money, like, 'Oh, I'm going to make it back next year. I'm going to make it back the year after that.' If it doesn't happen, then you're back at square zero."

While he doesn't plan on making any outlandish purchases, Williams said that the one big-ticket item at the top of his list is to buy his mother a home, having already paid off her student loans and bought her a new car.
