DAVIE—Raekwon McMillan was pleased to report today that he’s moved into his own apartment, a grand step into adulthood. Fellow Dolphins rookie Cordrea Tankersley one-upped him by getting a car that costs as much as one.

Tankersley, the cornerback out of Clemson, said he got an apartment as well, but also treated himself to a “G-Wagon” after signing his rookie contract. That would be a Mercedes-Benz G-Class, which looks like an armored military jeep.

According to U.S. News & World Report, the 2017 models retail for anywhere between $122,400 and $225,000. That’s quite a vehicle for Tankersley, who described himself as “not really a big spender.”

He added that he specially ordered the car with a matte grey finish and black rims. Here’s an example of what those look like:


For third-round picks, the rookie contracts are slotted at four years and less than $4 million total.
