The average professional football player isn't hurting financially, but forget all that for now.
The siren's song of Wednesday night's $550 million Powerball drawing has echoed through the Miami Dolphins locker room and, almost to a man, the roster has jumped at the chance to seize the bounty.
Defensive end Jared Odrick signed a five-year, $13 million contract in 2010, but that only means more capital to chase the dream.
"I might buy 100," Odrick said. "Dead serious. I might sit there all night tonight at 7-11 and get the numbers that come to me, that come to my head. Just start marking numbers down like Rain Man."
UPDATE: Powerball officials announced early Thursday that winning tickets for the jackpot were purchased in Arizona and Missouri, the New York Daily News reported. The winning numbers were 5-16-22-23-29 and the Powerball of 6.
