Chad Johnson May Have Been Jokingly Named The Cheapest Athlete, But It's Allowed Him To Maintain A $15M Net Worth

Most people have a favorite number, which can lead them to fully embrace it by wearing it as a pendant on a necklace or even as a tattoo. Former NFL wide receiver Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson took it to another level by adding his own spin to his jersey number, 85 — making it his nickname in Spanish. Although he’s built a reputation based on his association with the number, Johnson’s life and legacy go beyond it. Born in Miami, FL, Johnson entered the NFL as the Cincinnati Bengals’ second-round draft pick in 2001. Throughout his career, Johnson completed 766 receptions; 11,059 yards; and 67 touchdowns.

Chad Johnson Says He Lived At Paul Brown Stadium While Playing For The Bengals — 'I Ain't Want To Spend No Money'

Owning a home is a dream for many people. Whether for building generational wealth or simply having something to call your own, having a home is a top-tier goal people aspire to despite a volatile real estate market. Former NFL superstar Chad Ochocinco Johnson would agree, but his approach is much different. With homeownership being a part of wealth goals and personal dreams, those interested in the pursuit often want to make the most economical decision to avoid overspending and facing extremely high-interest rates. One of the ways to help mitigate those issues is to have a solid savings plan, complete due diligence on the prospective neighborhood, and decrease spending until the closing process is complete. Some would venture to believe that once a person reaches a certain tax bracket, the idea of being modest with income goes out of the window, mainly as you think about real estate.
