Former Oregon State wide receiver Brandin Cooks made $100,000 from Adidas for running the fastest 40 at the NFL combine while wearing their cleats and stands to make a lot more money after the NFL draft.

Cooks used that money to buy his mom, who raised Brandin and his two brothers by herself after his father died from a heart attack, a new Mercedes-Benz GLK 350. To say that his mom was overjoyed is an understatement.
