WATCH: Lynn Bowden bought his mother a new car

What do you do when you get your first big NFL paycheck? Take care of momma.

That’s what Lynn Bowden did, at least. Last night, Bowden’s mother Melissa Phillips posted pictures and a video of her son surprising her with a new Mercedes. Last week, the former Kentucky star signed his rookie contract with the Las Vegas Raiders.

I’m happy to see the dogs approve. Good on ya, Lynn.

    Uk players always set the standard now watch all these other rookies attempt to follow Bowden lead and try and do the same thing we are the needle!

    Love Lynn but what a paltry gesture! With all the millions he’ll be receiving, buying a car for his mother is no better than a journalist buying a cheeseburger for his mom!
    Pathetic journalism to even think the act of “buying mother a car” is grand enough to write about (a shame it’s been happening all over the world of sports). Put it in headlines when the multimillionaire-athlete “buys a house for his/her mother” and maybe then someone will be impressed…yawn

      Geez. Wake up on the wrong side of the bed bro? Sports journalism is slow at the moment. So he bought his mom a car. I’d give back to my mom too if I had that kinda money. And I bet she ain’t living in a shack man.

      east, just check out the screen name. That is all. This is probably DennyC/Code Red from the days of KSYore.

      So an explosion in Lebanon shouldnt be on KSR. Now a former uk player (sports) buying his mom a car (I’m sure you’ve done so much more for your mom)isnt worthy of KSR and it’s not even a good enough gift for his mom. What an ass.

    @LouisvilleN maybe if loserville could ever get any players drafted they might be able to afford what Bowden did. This is thereason all the top players want to come to UK over loserville to get to the NFL .

      Only an idiot would assume a person’s loyalties from a username. Please stop making the BBN look stupid. Now I understand why my friends who are UofL fans make jokes of me and other UK fans. SMH

    “Ms. Phillips, what do you think of your new car?”
    “I was hoping for a Longines.”
