Apparently, he had a deep emotional connection with his Supra and he went through a great of regret after selling this car.
The NFL champ admitted that there came a time when he realized he already has acquired a lot of cars that he is not even able to drive all of them the way he has been using them. He then decided to get rid of his cars so he sold his Toyota Supra.
