Sure, former Detroit Lion Ndamukong Suh makes a lot of money playing for the Miami Dolphins these days - but he's got the same problem you and I do this time of year - taxes. Suh recently talked to Business Insider and told them after taxes and agents fees, he's only able to spend half of that huge salary on mansions and hot rods.

And why did he sign with the Dolphins? Apparently he was acutely aware of the Michigan state and City of Detroit income taxes taking a chunk of his $100 million deal. Hmmm - Florida has no state income tax, as I'm sure your retired grandparents will tell you, as they try to stretch this month's Social Security checks. But, of course, I'm assuming your grandparents don't have to pay a "jock tax".

And soon, Suh may not have to worry about this anymore.

Here's the Business Insider story.
