Only one team will be going home champions at the end of Super Bowl 53 this Sunday, but all the stars who played and fought hard in the 2019 postseason will be going home to awesome mansions that most of us can only dream of. So, if you’re curious about the star players and coaches, and not watching commercials during the championship game between the New England Patriots and recently returned Los Angeles Rams, check out these mansions owned by a few post-season players and coaches.
One of America’s favorite quarterbacks, and sometimes favorite hated quarterback, is hands down Tom Brady. But love or hate him, his talent, staying power and ability to lead the New England Patriots is remarkable. He has led his team to eight Super Bowls, winning five times. Super Bowl 53 on February 3, 2019, will be his ninth appearance.
Not only is he famous, he is married to one of the world’s most famous supermodels, Gisele Bündchen . Brady has three children, including two with Bündchen. They live in a $4.5 million mansion in Brookline, Massachusetts. The 14,000 square foot house is a luxurious mansion built specifically to support Brady’s career, with a recovery spa, home theater and even a special safe to store his five Super Bowl rings.
The celebrity couple also maintains an apartment in New York City, on the 47th floor of the One Madison Building, which set them back $14 million.
Nick Foles rose to fame and fandom in the 2017-2018 postseason, rising from second string quarterback to take the Eagles to the Super Bowl and triumphing against the New England Patriots in dramatic fashion. He has played for multiple teams, including the Los Angeles Rams, who released him shortly after he bought a house in Newport Beach, California.
He’s settled into life in Philadelphia, and his heroics in helping the team to their first franchise Super Bowl victory in 2018 and determined effort in 2019 have earned him lifelong legend status for many Eagles fans.
Drew Brees has spent most of his career leading the New Orleans Saints as their quarterback. He has set so many NFL records it’s hard to keep track. He even took the team to their first Super Bowl victory ever, in 2010. He has become a hometown hero, giving back to the community and becoming an important part of the city’s identity. He and his family live in a $1.5 million mansion that they purchased in 2006.
Jason Garrett is the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, a team with a fan base as solid as any in the country. Garrett played in the NFL as a quarterback, including for the Cowboys, before getting into coaching. He and his wife Brill purchased their current home in Dallas in 2011, and have been there happily ever since.
Bill Belichick didn’t begin his coaching career in New England, but since coming to the Patriots in 2000, he has dominated the coaching world. He, along with quarterback Tom Brady, have set records, and crushed the dreams of opponents for nearly two decades. The stern, no-nonsense coach has proven he will do anything to win, and that he takes the game very seriously.
He also takes owning homes seriously, and he is the owner of multiple residences in Massachusetts, including a compound on Nantucket Island.
Since being drafted by the Patriots in 2010, Rob Grownkowski, or “Gronk”, has been a critical part of the team’s success. The team failed to make the playoffs only once since he started with the team (one season he didn’t play due to injury though). He has taken to living in Massachusetts and has become an important part of the community of Foxborough, where the tight end lives with roommates in a mansion. Sadly, the home was burglarized while he was playing in Super Bowl 52. Hopefully, this year the thieves will stay away!
These are just a few of the many men and women who will take to the field on February 3, fulfilling lifelong dreams, and hopefully making dreams come true for their fans at home.
