After inking a big contract that makes him one of the NFL’s highest-paid cornerbacks , New York Giants cornerback James Bradberry has amazing plans for his new wealth.

Speaking with TMZ Sports, Bradberry divulged his first priority is setting his mom up for retirement.

“I’mma surprise her with that,” Bradberry said. “It’s not an actual thing I’d be giving her, but I’ll be telling her, ‘Hey, you ain’t got to go to work anymore if you don’t want to.'”

He elaborated on what motivates him to give his mother this gift.

“She sacrificed a lot for me and my sister while growing up,” Bradberry said. “And just to be able to repay her without having her go to work anymore that’d be good for me because she can now do whatever she wants. Enjoy life.”

Bradberry spent the first four years of his NFL career with the Carolina Panthers as a former second-round pick out of Samford. He has certainly made the most of his chance and is now one of the league’s best cover cornerbacks with eight interceptions and 47 passes defensed as a pro.

Bradberry’s strong play led to a three-year, $45 million contract with the Giants this offseason. It’s touching that he wants to take care of the person who was so instrumental helping him get to this point.
