Are you saving more money than a Super Bowl champion?

Jamal Lewis, the former Ravens running back, offered the nosy a look at his finances when he recently filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. For instance, he makes $35,000 in an average month and spends $34,050 of it, leaving him with $950 left over, according to court documents.

You can see the full 75-page rundown here. Highlights:

o His monthly mortgage costs, not including taxes and insurance: $6,000

o Monthly vehicle payments: $5,700

o Biggest monthly outflow by far: $18,000 for regular expenses from operating a business

o Charitable contributions: $0

All told, Lewis tallies up about $14.5 million in assets and $10.6 million in liabilities. Besides the Super Bowl ring, fur and five Atlanta homes noted in the Sun's story about his financial predicament, Lewis also claimed ownership of a 47-foot powerboat worth an estimated $200,000, a 2005 Ford F-650 XUV ($150,000 -- the "X" is for "Xtreme"), a 2009 Mercedes CL63 ($80,950) and a 2008 Mercedes GL550 ($47,400).

You can see why the monthly vehicle payments are so high. On top of all that, he's got a leased 2010 Porsche Panamera.

Lewis told the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Atlanta that he expects his income won't change -- up or down -- within the next year. It was substantially higher in 2010, though: $1.6 million, or about $133,000 a month.
