    Huh, with all that money he made signing with Tennessee, i hope he made some wise investments rather than blowing it all.

    I imagine the problem would be that even with "wise investments" he probably lost a ton. Anyone investing in the 2007/2008 timeframe would. If you assume 40% or so went to taxes, a decent amount was spent then about half was lost through investments, the remains is probably a lot less than we might think.

    I don't think it is a big deal. Micky Ward does paving, Karl Malone drove a truck across country in the off season just to have something to do.

    SomethingAwful posters routinely make things up to get attention. How do we know this is not the case?

    We don't but I do wonder how many athletes were "set for life" with all their money in reasonably safe stocks then . . . boom. Half of it was gone.

    I think Givens has a bunch of different business interests. I know he is starting a health food/juice bar somewhere in the Southeast MA area.

    It's a very valid point.

    I must also point out, though, that 99.9% of the posters in SomethingAwful's football forums hate the Patriots with unbridled passion, for whatever reasons.

    Here's a couple of news sources a bit more legitimate than your "somethingawful.com" poster.

    Former Patriots star David Givens turns to art after career ending injury - Quincy, MA - The Patriot Ledger

    Former Patriots receiver Givens emphasizes education - Marshfield, MA - Marshfield Mariner

    Really folks, it's very simple. All you have to do is a 20 second internet search instead of propogating misleading gossip. How hard is that?


    Looks like he's doing just fine dabbling in hobbies, restaurant ownership and charity work.

    I modified it to a more general, and arguably more true statement
