10. TOM BRADY
He’s one of the greatest quarterbacks in football history - maybe even of all time - so of course, his mansion is going to be just as grand.

Needless to say, the retired player is still living large.

Priced at a generous amount of 25 million (2018), Cardinals quarterback, Carson Palmer scored a huge profit. When he purchased the property in 2010, he only paid 4.4 million!
