After he became the highest-paid quarterback in NFL history, at $125 million over five years, Derek Carr of the Oakland Raiders proved he's worth every cent of it. Asked how he'll spend the fortune, he first joked about going to Chick-fil-A, but then turned serious. "The first thing I'll do is pay my tithe, as I have since college," he said. His tithe will be $12.5 million over five years.

And what about his family? He said the cash will not change how his family lives, and his wife will still collect coupons. The fortune will be used to help others. "The exciting thing for me money-wise, honestly, is that this money is going to help a lot of people. I'm grateful it's in our hands, because it's going to help people not only in this country but in a lot of countries around the world," he said.
