Tavon Austin is in the NFL and most of his dreams have come true. The late great Notorious BIG also told us that with more money, comes more problems.
Tavon Austin is a St. Louis Rams wide receiver and is going to be a star, but has yet to receive a check. That still hasn’t stopped people from holding their hand out.
Austin told the Rams official website that “everybody he knows is already asking him for money.”
“Everybody expects a lot of things from you as far as money,” Austin told the Rams’ website. “Everybody wants to be around you. My phone doesn’t stop ringing now. It feels like they’re counting my bank account now. So that’s probably the hardest thing for me right now, just people.”
The Baltimore native says that people have come out the woodworks, and his family has multiplied by several.
“I’ve got a lot of cousins now,” Austin said. “The whole [city of] Baltimore is my cousin now. We’re going to just try to keep focused and let my mother and all of them handle it.”
Hopefully Tavon Austin will be able to focus on football all the while learning the word no.
