NFL linebacker Carl Nassib makes a base salary of $2.03 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — and he saves most of it. By keeping his spending in check, he estimates he saves 85% of his income. “I have about one-third of my money invested and the rest of it is in cash,” says Nassib.

NFL player Carl Nassib saves 85% of his income—here's where he invests his money

NFL linebacker Carl Nassib makes a base salary of $2.03 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — and he saves most of it.

After all, “It would be really hard to spend 50% of my income in one year,” the 26-year-old tells CNBC Make It.

While Nassib is earning a massive paycheck, he’s also smart with how he handles it: The team captain sticks to a monthly budget of $3,500 for rent, food and bills, and spends another $400 to $500 on miscellaneous expenses.

By keeping his spending in check, he estimates he saves 85% of his income.

“I have about one-third of my money invested and the rest of it is in cash,” says Nassib. “A lot of people will say that that’s way too much to have in cash, but I don’t feel rushed to jump into any investments or any opportunities right now. I’m going to take my time, learn more and more every day and wait for a really good opportunity to strike.”

The money he does invest mostly goes into index funds, which are highly diversified and typically low-fee funds that anyone can invest in. Plus, “I’m investing in electric utility stocks because I think electric cars are going to be really big,” he says. “And I have a little bit of money invested in copper because electric cars use a lot more copper than regular cars.”

Four years into his NFL career, Nassib is already thinking about life after football. “The NFL career is a fickle one,” he says. “Who knows when it’s going to end.”

That’s why he’s taking advantage of compound interest when he’s young and considering starting a company down the line.

Regardless of how his income fluctuates in the future, though, he plans to continue to keep his expenses low: “I try to live a normal life and not live outside my means.”

Ohio State's star football player suspended for accepting loan

Chase Young of the Ohio State Buckeyes looks on against the Northwestern Wildcats at Ryan Field on October 18, 2019 in Evanston, Illinois.

Ohio State’s star defensive end, a favorite for the NFL’s No. 1 draft pick next year, has been suspended from this week’s upcoming game for accepting a loan from a family friend last year — in violation of NCAA rules.

“Ohio State’s Chase Young will not play in this Saturday’s game between the Buckeyes and the Maryland Terrapins due to a possible NCAA issue from 2018 that the Department of Athletics is looking into,” Ohio State’s Associate Athletics Director Jerry Emig said in a statement to CNBC. The suspension is for one game only, but the university is uncertain if it will be extended, he said.

Young’s agent Tim Nevius, a former NCAA investigator, on Twitter that Young accepted the money from a “close family friend to cover basic life expenses.” He called the NCAA rules “unfair and outdated,” and says the loan was repaid months ago.

Neither Young nor Nevius responded to requests for comment made to Nevius’ office. The size of the loan wasn’t disclosed.

In late September, the association sent a letter to California Gov. Gavin Newsom opposing his “Fair Pay to Play Act,” a bill that would allow student athletes to profit off their likeness. Last month, after mounting pressure, the NCAA announced it would “embrace change” by taking the first steps to allow student athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness. The new rules do not go into affect until January 2021.

Under NCAA guidelines, college athletes are allowed to accept student loans and scholarships to pay for expenses. The association does not currently allow students to profit off their name and likeness.

The NCAA declined to comment on the investigation, referring questions to Ohio State, which is running the investigation.

Former Villanova football player sues NCAA for minimum wage violations

A former Villanova University football player filed a class-action lawsuit against the NCAA and many of its Division I member schools over minimum wage violations, just over a week after the NCAA announced it would allow student-athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness. “They pay the students who tear the tickets and sell popcorn at our games,” Johnson said in the statement. “The least that the NCAA can do for those who bring so much money to the NCAA and its schools would be to pay

Former Villanova football player sues NCAA for minimum wage violations

Isaiah Wright #13 of the Temple Owls runs with the ball and is tackled by Trey Johnson #3 of the Villanova Wildcats at Lincoln Financial Field on September 9, 2017 in Philadelphia.

A former Villanova University football player filed a class-action lawsuit against the NCAA and many of its Division I member schools over minimum wage violations, just over a week after the NCAA announced it would allow student-athletes to profit off their name, image and likeness.

Trey Johnson, who went on to play professionally for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Denver Broncos and now plays for the Canadian Football League, seeks to hold the NCAA and its member schools accountable for refusing to pay student athletes, according to a released statement.

The lawsuit, which was filed Wednesday, also highlights the fact that the governing body has compared its collegiate athletes “to prisoners in arguing that athletes should not have to be paid anything for their work.”

The suit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and its main argument is that student-athletes are student employees just like, if not more than, the work-study students employed to work at games.

“They pay the students who tear the tickets and sell popcorn at our games,” Johnson said in the statement. “The least that the NCAA can do for those who bring so much money to the NCAA and its schools would be to pay them the minimum wage.”

Johnson, who played football for Villanova from the 2013 season through the 2016 season, said in the statement that the case “is not about being paid hundreds of thousands of dollars” and is not being limited to the select few athletes that can receive endorsement deals.

“This complaint is filed by lawyers who have already sued unsuccessfully on this subject,” Donald Remy, NCAA chief operating office and chief legal officer, said in a statement. “Importantly, it ignores previous court rulings that student-athletes are not university employees. The NCAA remains confident that courts will continue to uphold the precedent set by prior decisions.”

This lawsuit comes in the wake of a recent unanimous vote by the NCAA to allow college athletes to profit off of their name, image and likeness. The governing organization announced on Oct. 29 that it’s starting the process to allow college athletes to be compensated, though the NCAA’s three divisions must still craft their own rules and detail the specifics.

A single anonymous market manipulator caused bitcoin to top $20,000 two years ago, study shows

A forensic study on bitcoin’s 2017 boom has found that nearly the entire rise of the digital currency at the time is attributable to “one large player,” although the market manipulator remains unidentified. The professors’ study found that tethers being traded for bitcoins revealed a pattern. The digital currency exchange Bitfinex is one of the largest in the world. The study found that, through Bitfinex, the single player was able to manipulate demand for bitcoin via “extreme” flows of tethers.

A single anonymous market manipulator caused bitcoin to top $20,000 two years ago, study shows

A forensic study on bitcoin’s 2017 boom has found that nearly the entire rise of the digital currency at the time is attributable to “one large player,” although the market manipulator remains unidentified.

Finance professors John Griffin and Amin Shams – instructors at University of Texas and the Ohio State University, respectively – analyzed over 200 gigabytes of data for the transaction history between bitcoin and tether, another digital currency. Tether is an asset known as a “stablecoin,” which has its trading value connected to the dollar.

The professors’ study found that tethers being traded for bitcoins revealed a pattern.

“We find that the identified patterns are not present on other flows, and almost the entire price impact can be attributed to this one large player,” Griffin and Shams wrote. “We map this data across both blockchains and find that the one player or entity (labeled as 1LSg throughout the paper) is behind the majority of the patterns we document.”

Griffin and Shams were able to follow the clusters of data to a source: “One large account at Bitfinex.” The digital currency exchange Bitfinex is one of the largest in the world. The study found that, through Bitfinex, the single player was able to manipulate demand for bitcoin via “extreme” flows of tethers. The Wall Street Journal first reported on the updated study’s results on Monday.

The manipulation occurred as bitcoin rose to an all-time high of nearly $20,000 in late 2017, the study found. Bitcoin traded at about $9,300 on Monday.

“One of the SEC’s top worries is that crypto is subject to manipulation. This study appears to lend credibility to that argument,” Cowen analyst Jaret Seiberg said in a note on Monday.

The study comes after an analysis published in March found that 95% bitcoin spot trading is faked. The survey, created by cryptocurrency asset manager Bitwise for the SEC, found that only $273 million of about $6 billion in average daily bitcoin volume was legitimate.

Cowen said Griffin and Shams’ study will likely add even more scrutiny of bitcoin and cryptocurrency at large, especially from regulators and lawmakers.

“We see this as further souring Washington on crypto and believe it is negative for efforts to launch crypto ETFs and for Facebook to launch Libra,” Seiberg added.

Libra is Facebook’s cryptocurrency project, which has seen several major backers drop out in the past month.

While the latest study doesn’t identify the manipulator, the professors suggest those running Bitfinex either knew of the operation or were even possibly assisting the scheme. Bitfinex’s general counsel Stuart Hoegner told the WSJ that the study “lacks academic rigor,” saying that “it is the global rise of digital currency that has driven the market’s demand for tether.”

Both Bitfinex and Tether Ltd., the company that controls tether, are owned and operated by the same people. The WSJ noted that both companies are under investigations for alleged fraud by the Department of Justice and the New York Attorney General.

– CNBC’s Tom Franck contributed to this report.

NFL player Carl Nassib makes millions but sticks to a $3,500 budget for rent, food and bills

NFL linebacker Carl Nassib signed a four-year, $3.6 million contract with the Cleveland Browns when he was drafted in 2016. The deal also came with a six-figure bonus: $889,752.

His new salary “didn’t really change my headspace much,” he tells CNBC Make It. “I was just like, I have this money, I better be smart with it. I was more focused on my career as a football player than worrying about how much money I had in the bank.”

Three years after signing with the Browns, Nassib is making a base salary of $2.03 million with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — and he still plays it safe with his money. The 26-year-old team captain sticks to a monthly budget of $3,500 for rent, food and bills. He spends another $400 to $500 on miscellaneous expenses.

“This year I’ve been more on top of my budget than ever,” he says. That’s partly because he hasn’t switched teams and had to move to a different city, which is common in the NFL: “My expenses are at an all time low because you don’t realize how much moving costs. Everything adds up.”

NFL player Efe Obada was abandoned in London as a kid—now he’s making $575,000 with the Panthers

NFL player Efe Obada was abandoned in London as a kid—now he's making $575,000 with the Panthers

On Sunday, the Carolina Panthers will play the division-rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. Kick off is set for 9:30 a.m. ET.

It will be a homecoming of sorts for one Panther player: Efe Obada, who was first introduced to the sport that would change his life in the United Kingdom.

Born in Nigeria, Obada was trafficked from the Netherlands to the U.K. when he was 10 and then abandoned on the streets of London, ESPN reports. He ended up in foster care, bouncing from home to home.

Obada didn’t pick up a football until his early 20s, let alone play college ball like most NFL draft prospects. When he was 22 and working as a security guard for Grace Foods, a friend invited him to join a practice with the British American football team, the London Warriors.

The coaching squad was immediately impressed with his speed, especially considering his 6-foot-6-inch frame. One coach, who had been an intern with the Dallas Cowboys, flagged Obada to his former team and recommended they offer him a tryout. After just five games of experience with the Warriors, the Cowboys signed Obada to its practice squad in 2015.

He was sent from Dallas to the Kansas City Chiefs to the Atlanta Falcons before finally landing in Carolina in 2017.

After years on the sidelines, Obada played in his first NFL game last season as a Carolina Panther — and he seized the opportunity. Playing defensive end, he posted a sack and an interception in his debut game. His performance earned him the game ball from head coach Ron Rivera and the distinction of being named NFC Defensive Player of the Week.

As ESPN notes, his story is far from complete: Obada needs to prove his ability on the field in order “to extend his work visa beyond the one year, $570,000 contract he signed with Carolina in January. If he doesn’t get re-signed or find another opportunity, he will have to move back to London.”

The stakes are high — but for Obada, it fuels the fire. “He practices 100 miles per hour,” Rivera told ESPN.

As Obada put it: “I go hard every time.”
