“I just raised my hand and was like, ‘So, you’re saying we can sit on money and watch it grow?’ ” Williams, now 21, recalled. “[My teacher] was like, ‘Basically, yes.’ I was like, ‘Bet, sign me up.’ ”

Williams always has been a saver, even as a kid growing up in public housing. When his mother would give him and his brother Deontre $5 apiece to buy food at McDonald’s, Deontre would use all $5. Williams would spend only a dollar and pocket the other four.

Brett Favre: Tom Brady’s age has nothing to do with struggles

  Brett Favre: Tom Brady’s age has nothing to do with struggles Tom Brady is not putting up the same kind of numbers this season that NFL fans have grown accustomed to over his Hall of Fame career, and some insiders, pundits and the like are beginning to wonder if his age is finally catching up with him. © Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Brett Favre, who obviously knows a thing or two about playing the quarterback position as well as anyone at an advanced age, has dismissed the notion that Brady’s age has anything to do with this season’s struggles out of the New England Patriots offense.The Hall of Famer weighed in on the Brady situation this week during his show on SiriusXM NFL Radio.

One New England Patriots rookie appears to be closely following recently retired tight end Rob Gronkowski’s philosophy when it comes to money . In an interview with the Boston Globe, Patriots player Joejuan Williams said he’s saving close to 90 percent of his paychecks.

Whatever money came his way, no matter how much or how little, Williams saved it. He stored any cash he had in a shoebox in his bedroom. He opened his first bank account once he landed a job in high school, working for his cousin who owned a used car lot. The gig earned Williams a steady $300 per week, sometimes with an added bonus if he drove cars back to Tennessee from out-of-state auctions.

How he handled the money was just as important to him as the bills themselves. After watching his mom live paycheck-to-paycheck, Williams had developed fears of inadequacy and financial instability. “I’ve been stingy with money ever since I was young just because I saw what my mom had to go through,” he says now. So, he saved, and saved, and saved.

But saving money to earn more money? That was something new.

Taught by one of the assistant football coaches, Greg Carson, the personal finance class at Father Ryan introduced Williams to the basics of investing and retirement planning. He learned about hedge funds, 401(k) plans, certificates of deposit, and Roth IRAs. He learned how to budget and how to file a tax refund. He learned, most importantly, how to make smart choices.

“It changed my life,” Williams said. “It completely changed my life.”

From there, Williams went on to study economics at Vanderbilt, and continued to research and pursue his interest in money management. Now on a four-year, $6.6 million NFL contract, he hired a financial adviser, a careful decision that required multiple interviews and references.

His cash flow has obviously multiplied since washing used cars for his cousin, but his approach to money has also evolved. Instead of save, save, save, it’s save and invest, save and invest, save and invest.

Report: Mohamed Sanu could miss multiple weeks with high-ankle sprain

  Report: Mohamed Sanu could miss multiple weeks with high-ankle sprain Losing Sanu, who the Patriots acquired for a second-round pick, would be another blow to a thin receiving corps and a passing attack that can’t find a rhythm. Sanu exploded on Nov. 3 against the Baltimore Ravens with 10 receptions for 81 receiving yards. He found open spots in the secondary early against the Eagles before suffering the ankle injury.If Sanu is unable to play on Sunday and misses additional time, New England will need first-round pick N’Keal Harry to step into a much more significant role moving forward as a go-to target for Brady.

Happy Father's Day, in this week's Patriots ' news, why trading Joe T huney shouldn't be done, the Patriots protect season ticket holders at risk for COVID-19 with a Joejuan Williams was adding safety work during the offseason. That isn’t bad news at all as some said. Williams is far from a “bust”.

Williams estimates he invests at least 90 percent of the money that comes in via game checks. The portion from the first few was a bit lower because he paid off his mom’s student loans and bought her a car. Other than that, however, the expenses are limited.

“I’m going to sacrifice now for me to be happy later,” Williams says. “I can go buy me a really nice car, I can go buy me a really nice house if I wanted to, I can go buy me a really nice chain — multiple chains — if I wanted to. But that’s not going to suffice me for when I’m 40, 50, or 60 [years old]. Who knows when I’m going to need that bread.”

Turned off by the concept of spending money he doesn’t have, Williams hates using his credit card, although he recognizes the importance of building credit. The rare times he does indulge, he ensures he has the money to immediately pay off his purchases.

When he sees something he might be interested in buying, whether it’s clothes or shoes, Williams will wait two days before pulling the trigger — and usually, the time spent thinking will change his mind. But there is one thing that has always been on his radar.

Report: QB Russell Wilson wanted Seahawks to sign Antonio Brown

  Report: QB Russell Wilson wanted Seahawks to sign Antonio Brown ESPN reported that Seattle showed interest in Brown before claiming veteran Josh Gordon off waivers on Friday. The report says Seattle QB Russell Wilson pushed for the Seahawks to sign Brown. It also states that Brown's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says a few teams remain interested in signing Brown "once this process is over."While it’s not yet known who might be interested in Brown, it’s safe to assume it is contending teams. The PR hit that would come with signing Brown likely isn’t worth it for teams with no shot at the postseason.

Patriots rookie Joejuan Williams is all about ( protecting ) the money - The Boston Globe. The first-year defensive back had his eyes opened by a personal finances class in high school and has brought that knowledge with him to his NFL job.

“My main goal is I’m going to give my mom a home,” Williams said. “I’ve had that ever since I was a kid. I told my mom that when I was kid, when I was a kid-kid. That’s the only big purchase I have my eyes on.”

Given New England’s tremendous depth in the secondary, Williams, drafted 45th overall, hasn’t seen the field much this season, though there’s intrigue surrounding his potential. Regardless of the upside of his career trajectory, Williams, who was inactive Sunday night against the Ravens, is prepared for the unknown.

“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.”

One day, Williams hopes to set up a formal financial literacy program so he can impart the knowledge from the class that first sparked his interest in money back in high school. He still remembers the differences in responses when he tried to talk to his friends about what he learned from Mr. Carson. His friends from home would brush off the ideas, arguing it’s too late to get started. His friends from Father Ryan, on the other hand, would say their parents already have set up various accounts on their behalf.

How 17-game NFL season could benefit players, owners

  How 17-game NFL season could benefit players, owners If the players receive enough in return, a 17-game regular season can be a game-changer for the NFL long term and widen the popularity gap between it and the other major American sports leagues, Yardbarker's Sam Robinson writes.With owners looking increasingly committed to convincing the NFL Players Association to accept a proposal for a 17-game season, the union has a bargaining chip it did not possess during the 2011 labor talks. Asked to agree to the first NFL schedule increase since 1978, the NFLPA can put key issues on the table when collective bargaining agreement discussions resume.

“They have a head start in this race,” Williams said. “For a lot of public schools in inner cities, it’s not required to take any personal finance classes to graduate or even learn about money in that sense. That’s not the real world. The real world revolves around money. It really puts a lot of inner-city kids who don’t have much at a disadvantage.”

In the meantime, Williams will continue to lead by example.

“I want to be set in the future when I’m not working,” he said. “Grind now, sacrifice now, be happy later. I’d rather live like a prince for the rest of my life than live like a king for my NFL career and then go back to square zero.”
