Athletes who love showing off their wealth on Instagram – Athletes are some of the most revered figures in our culture. Along with singers, actors and people who are famous for being famous, fans are always trying to see what they’re up to. It makes us feel involved when we see our favorite celebrity post something about their day. It gives us a quick glimpse behind the curtain of fame into what the real person is like when the cameras are off.

This is the case even more so with athletes, as their personal behavior creates story-lines in times both good and bad. Personalities don’t seem to be a problem when the team is winning, but are the first thing mentioned when a team starts to rack-up the losses. Some athletes don’t like to show their personal life to the world at all. Marshawn Lynch, for example, would famously rather take a hefty fine from the NFL rather than give a sound bite for the media to use. Others are more open with their lives, and post frequently on Instagram or Twitter. Instagram pictures and videos in particular give fans a clearer idea of what their favorite athlete is like off the field or the court.
Some Instagram accounts are more active and engaging than others. Marshwan Lynch, again, almost never posts anything on Instagram that isn’t somehow making him money. It’s a shame, because I’d love to see some unfiltered Beast Mode, but we just won’t get it. Others can’t get enough of their social media following, marking landmarks in followers like you or I might. Here are some of the most electric athlete Instagram accounts on the site. You never know what’s going to happen with some of these, so make sure you follow them before they delete that controversial picture.

The Redskins’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson, is one of the more active Instagrammers in the NFL. He recently surpassed the one million follower mark and posted a photo thanking his fans, showing he doesn’t take his Instagram audience for granted. Jackson, like many athletes on this list, mostly uses his Instagram to show off.
He flaunts his lavish lifestyle, affinity for cars, charitable work and on-field highlights (in between hot takes on Chris Brown’s bail hearing). Based on his feed, it seems like he’s sending meals to the homeless every other week, which is good to see. Everyone knows charitable work doesn’t count unless you tell everyone you did it. His kid takes up a good amount of his feed as well, so you can expect a healthy dose of baby Jackson in his prime cuteness.
