Joe Flacco 300x298 NFL Player Signs $120M Deal, Celebrates ... at McDonalds?[1]It turns out that the highest paid player in NFL history likes his McNuggets[2].

Employees at an Aberdeen, Maryland, McDonald‘s (NYSE:MCD[3]) spotted the Joe Flacco, who led his Baltimore Ravens to victory over the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII, at the restaurant’s drive-through window on Monday, the Baltimore Sun noted.

The quarterback, who just signed a six-year deal with the Ravens worth $120.6 million, ordered a ten-piece McNuggets meal.  It cost him about $7.

Named the Super Bowl’s most valuable player, Flacco was awarded a General Motors (NYSE:GM[4]) 2014 Chevy Corvette, worth about $60,000. He would have had to pay a sizeable tax bill to the IRS if he accepted the car[5], instead of donating it to charity.
