Former Kentucky star Lynn Bowden buys mom new car with Raiders rookie contract
Last week, Lynn Bowden Jr. signed his rookie contract with the Las Vegas Raiders. As the NFL Draft’s No. 80 pick overall, Bowden signed a rookie contract with around $4.7 million, including a signing bonus of around $900,000.
This week, he’s already paid back his mother and bought her a new car: Mercedes CLA 250. Bowden’s mother shared photos on social media of her new ride (below).
Bowden had a ridiculous junior season that saw him rush for nearly 1,500 yards and 13 touchdowns while playing quarterback for the Wildcats. When Terry Wilson went down with a season-ending injury early in the year, Bowden stepped up his game and became Kentucky’s do-it-all, and teams couldn’t stop it. In fact, he made defenses look silly.
It wouldn’t surprise us to see the Raiders use Bowden in multiple positions to maximize his impact.
