NFL players are some of the highest paid athletes in the world. Von Miller signed a $114.5M contract with the Broncos on Friday, making him one of the highest-paid players in the league. See who else makes the cut, according to NFL.com.
On average these professional football players earn about $20 million a year from the game alone. Mind you, this doesn’t include endorsements or other perks. Needless to say, these guys have some pretty big homes to go along with the big salaries. Here are 32 of them below.
Alex Smith – Kansas City Chiefs
When current Kansas Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith left his first NFL home, the San Francisco 49ers, he lived in this 4,650-square-foot home which was built in 2010. It embraces a more old-timey charm, with 100-year-old reclaimed wood beams and antique limestone floors. The four-bedroom house also comes with a patio, outdoor kitchen, fire pit, and bocce ball court.
JJ Watt – Houston Texans
Watt was apparently seeking a “no frills” place devoid of any distraction, but at 4,500 square feet, the home is no simple log cabin. In fact, there’s an elevator inside, and Watt is reportedly planning to add a gym to the barn on the 35-acre property.
Richard Sherman – Seattle Seahawks
The home includes an indoor swimming pool, floor-to-ceiling fireplaces, basketball court and beauty salon. $2.3M. 9,435 square feet located in Seattle, Washington.

Dallas, Texas. 9,304 square feet. English-style mansion with 6-bedrooms, 7.5-bathrooms and features four living areas, numerous bonus rooms, a wine porch, seven fireplaces, a theater room and a chef’s kitchen. Before joining the Broncos, Ware played for the Dallas Cowboys and lived in the Fort Worth suburb of Colleyville. This six-bedroom, nearly 10,000-square-foot mansion sits in a gated community, and seems to have a dream setup for entertaining, offering a wine porch, outdoor pavilion, pool with separate pool house and game room, cushioned turf play area, and putting-chipping green.
Tom Brady – New England Patriots
$20 Million. Just a one short year after selling their Los Angeles compound to Dr. Dre, Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen are finally settled in Massachusetts.
