We've heard plenty of stories about professional athletes poorly managing their money when they receive their first paychecks, but it's always funny to hear stories of athletes being overly cautious with their cash.

According to an interview with GQ about his "statement watch," New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz claims he asked for his mom's permission before buying his first Rolex.

Hat tip to Pro Football Zone for the find.
