Lynn Bowden gifts his mother a car

Bowden takes care of mom on his first big contract.

Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

Former Kentucky Wildcat, Lynn Bowden, signed his first NFL contract with the Las Vegas Raiders about a week ago.

So what did he get for his first big purchase?

Bowden did what any player who just scored a big contract should do. He bought his mother a Mercedes, of course.

Bowden’s mother, Melissa Phillips, posted a video of the surprise early this morning.

Bowden is a hell of a player, but we all know that he is an even better person. He takes care of mom, his son, and his family.

Congratulations to Lynn and his family on his first contract, and hopefully there is many more that follow.
