Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins made $19.9 million last year. This year, he'll earn $23.9 million. But you wouldn't guess his salary based on what he drives: a dented GMC Savana passenger van with more than 100,000 miles on it.
He and his wife bought it from his grandma for $5,000 in 2014.
"It's better to buy appreciating assets than depreciating," Cousins told Kevin Clark of The Wall Street Journal in 2016. "No yachts, no sports cars."
The starting quarterback makes a good point. The moment you drive a new car off the lot, its value depreciates by about 20 percent.
