Most celebrities downsize their homes and spending after their time on the field is over, but not Strahan. The former defensive end, who is know a daytime TV show host and pre-game analyst, dropped $17 million on this 15,600 square-foot mansion in California.

Clearly he’s still making good money, as his home features nine bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, beautiful 20-foot ceilings, a home theatre with a 15-foot screen and leather seating for 20 of his guests. He can even take an elevator down to his fitness room, and later relax in a 59-foot swimming pool that is kitted out with a wet bar and custom BBQ.
