It's that time of year again: Super Bowl Sunday is right around the corner. Whether you're a Giants or Patriots fan, this rematch is bound to be a good one to watch.
Football players make tons of money, even when they're not performing at the top of their game. And those players who have multiple winning seasons or make their way into the Pro Football Hall of Fame are rewarded handsomely with endorsement deals, TV gigs and paychecks that will make your head spin.
All that money can buy you a heck of a home, and the football players on this list have taken full advantage of the market. It's hard to feel bad for the guys who aren't playing in Super Bowl XLVI after seeing these places -- I'm sure they can throw a great game day party at home to cheer themselves up.
