Chargers' DE Jerry Tillery Spotted Penthouse Shopping in NYC

Tillery, who just completed his third season in the National Football League, was spotted in New York City scouting out a penthouse apartment in the area of South Harlem located next to Central Park. The New York Post reported on Tillery's presence in NYC, and did a bit of digging to find out more about the unit that he's been viewing.

As it turns out, the apartment is pretty incredible. First and foremost, here are the specifics of the unit, as listed by Nest Seekers LLC on StreetEasy:

Tillery is 25 years old, and is originally from Shreveport, Louisiana. He played defensive end at Notre Dame, and was drafted with the 28th overall pick in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. He signed his rookie contract, and began play in the 2019 NFL season.

In 2021, he set career-highs in starts, tackles (solo and combined), tackles for loss, and sacks as a defensive end on the Chargers.

What's more, Tillery is entering the final year of his rookie contract, and is set to make $2,052,567 in 2022, according to Spotrac. The Chargers have yet to decide whether or not they will exercise Tillery's 5th-year option, an option that would pay Tillery $11.5 million in 2023.

What a payday that would be.

Whether the payday comes from the Chargers now, after this season, or from another franchise in the future, it appears as though Tillery is looking to put down roots all over the country. Let's take a look inside his prospective New York City penthouse apartment, and see some of the incredible amenities that an apartment next to Central Park has to offer.
