The Clemson QB had his $24.1 million signing bonus, 100%, put into a Bitcoin / cryptocurrency account.  That's ballsy.

Sequon Barkley, PSU / NY Giants had $10 Million in endorsement income, 100% went to Bitcoin.

I wonder how Lawrence is going to pay the taxes on his signing bonus.  I doubt that the IRS takes bitcoin.

Yeah, those are gutsy moves.  Hopefully he can sell enough bits to make the IRS payment when it comes due.

Likely had at least 20% withheld upfront.  While independent contractors, they are still deemed employees subject to withholding tax, and even Work Comp insurance (NFL clubs self insure and by excess stop loss, though even excess is hard to find these days due to concussion injury).
