It's nice to see Gio being smart with his money. We read enough stories about pro athletes going broke not long after their careers end, so Gio is a breath of fresh air.  He may be taking it to the extreme, though

"As a second-round pick by the Cincinnati Bengals, the running back from North Carolina got a $5.253 million contract with a $2.2 million signing bonus. Most young players, even ones who made far, far less on their rookie contract, take that money straight to the luxury car dealership. He just borrowed a Honda minivan. 'It's a car that gets me from point A to point B,' Bernard said. 'It's definitely good on gas.'"
