This is a brilliant idea when you consider the NFL has no guaranteed salaries, and ranks among the lowest when it comes to the league minimum.

Detroit Lions wide receiver Ryan Broyles isn’t giving off the impression that he’s a baller at all.

Broyles proudly lives like a dollarnaire, sticking to annual budget of $60,000 for he and his families expenditures, according to ESPN.com.

“Then you know how much you can invest, how risky you can be,” Broyles said, as he enters the last year of his rookie contract with no guarantee he’ll make the Lions roster. “Then, when I was hitting the same budget over three, four, five months, it was all right, this is what your budget is and I had some spending money.

“I didn’t hold myself back at all on those terms. That’s what I tell people when they want to start to invest, I tell them to live your life and see where you stand and then pull back. Don’t pull back without even knowing.”

Broyles signed a contract worth more than $3.6 million, with more than $1.422 million guaranteed, after the Lions selected in the second round.

Broyles and his wife both drive Mazda’s as well.
