With training camps kicking off for teams and the preseason less than 10 days away, it's time for NFL players to get back to work. This means that they will be spending less time at their lavish, multi-million dollar homes and more time in the trenches going through grueling practices. Let's take a quick look at 15 of the top mansions that belong to current NFL players.

15. Marshawn Lynch - Seattle Seahawks

Beast Mode is not only his nickname, but it could also be the nickname for his house as well. This waterfront property located in Richmond, Calif. cost Lynch $ 3.6 million and has 7,000 square feet of living space. It includes five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a gorgeous panoramic view of the San Francisco Bay. Additionally, he had a 58-foot boat dock built so he can play with his water toys in his backyard, also known as the Bay Area waters.

The former LSU Tiger and current Pro Bowl cornerback purchased this home in Gilbert, Ariz. for $ 1.3 million. The Mediterranean-style house includes seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, two fireplaces, billiard area, theater room, wet bar, detached guest house, two swimming pools, spa, rock waterfalls, fire pit, BBQ and a six-car garage. It's safe to say that Peterson is doing extremely well for himself for someone under the age of 25.

13. Richard Sherman - Seattle Seahawks

In May, the outspoken Super Bowl champion signed a contract extension that made him the highest paid cornerback in the NFL. Naturally, after signing that deal, Sherman decided to purchase a $ 2.3 million mansion that used to belong to L.A. Clippers guard, Jamal Crawford. This Mediterranean-style mansion comes equipped with four bedrooms, 6.25 bathrooms, wet bar, indoor pool, basketball court and two fireplaces. In short, it pays to be the champ.

12. Philip Rivers - San Diego Chargers

Rivers is one of the highest-paid QBs in the NFL and his house certainly proves that fact. For $ 3.3 million, Rivers' home included six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a courtyard with fountain, outdoor fireplace, built-in BBQ, swimming pool with a waterfall, private rose gardens, wine cellar, full bar, library and a media room. The five-time Pro Bowler certainly lives the life of luxury and looks to be a perfect spot for parties.

It's hard to argue that Hester isn't the greatest return man in NFL history. It's just as hard to argue that he doesn't live in one of the best mansions out of current NFL stars. Hester’s massive estate is nearly 10,000 square feet spread across three floors and includes a state-of-the-art kitchen. Hester will be playing for the Atlanta Falcons this fall and, as a result, is selling his Chicago home for a "reasonable" $ 2.65 million.

10. Frank Gore - San Francisco 49ers

The former Miami Hurricane looks as if he literally bought a hill in California and placed his estate right onto it. While details about the home seem to be scarce, it's clear to see that Gore lives in one of the best NFL homes that most likely includes multiple bathrooms, multiple bedrooms, state-of-the-art kitchen, home theater and a majestic pool that's the size of a small lake. This looks like an ideal spot for a California pool party.

9. Brandon Marshall - Chicago Bears

Built in 2009, Marshall paid $ 4,150,000 for this Mediterranean-style home which has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a theater, gym, game room, swimming pool & spa, fire pit, sports court and four-car garage. Additionally, it covers 11,877 square feet of living space in beautiful Southwest Ranches, Fla. It's too bad that Marshall is now dealing with training camp drills rather than soaking in the sun and luxury of his beautiful estate.

After purchasing this 4,781 square-foot waterfront palace on Tampa Bay for $ 1.6 million, Gronkowski has placed the home back on the market with an asking price of $ 2.4 million. Located at the Westshore Yacht Club, the home has a game room with billiards table, elevator, wet bar, media room and built-in fish tanks. If this is the house that he's trying to sell, then it only makes one wonder what type of mansion he will be moving into next.

The former Heisman Trophy winner's house features an amazing chef’s kitchen, a state-of-the-art theater, an elevator connecting all three levels and a second story library/loft. Additionally, the grounds include a pool/spa, custom wood decks, BBQ center and a lower level dog run. Bush purchased the home back in 2007 for $ 4.7 million, but now he's placed it on the market for a price of $ 5.1 million in order not to lose on his grand investment.

RG3 will have a lot to prove this NFL season after a lackluster second year. However, nothing is lackluster about his home. With five bedrooms, four bathrooms, 9,000 square feet, ebony staircase, elevator, jacuzzi, wine cellar and a golf course, it's safe to say that Griffin has proved what a few million dollars can buy. Hopefully his recently-purchased grand estate will be a precursor to a grand re-entrance into the NFL's elite QB rankings.

5. DeMarcus Ware - Denver Broncos

The former Dallas Cowboys standout has placed this home on the market for $ 2.2 million due to his relocation to Denver as a member of the Broncos. This estate includes six bedrooms, seven and a half bathrooms, seven fireplaces, ground-level trampoline, wine porch and a putting green. It's unsure as to why anyone would need one, much less seven, fireplaces while living in Texas. However, the money spent on them was clearly not an issue for Ware.

4. Tony Romo - Dallas Cowboys

Top-notch QBs in the NFL receive massive contracts, and Romo's contract, which has been extended to $ 108 million over six years, is about as big as the house he has. This home has six bedrooms plus a study, three fireplaces, white marble floors, pool, spa and an outdoor entertaining area. Clearly the star symbol on his helmet represents just how well he is living.

3. Aaron Rodgers - Green Bay Packers

Considering the fact that he is one of the highest-paid players in the NFL, Rodgers lives in a rather modest home compared to other players. Along with the usual multiple bedroom and bathroom setup, Rodgers' mansion includes a swimming pool and spa, massive dining room and a man-made garden that adds an extra special touch to his landscape that most NFL players don't seem to consider with their places.

2. Peyton Manning - Denver Broncos

It's clear to the world that Peyton Manning is one of the greatest QBs to ever step foot on an NFL field, and he has an incredible 16,000 square foot mansion as a symbol of his greatness. This $ 4.6 million home includes seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a seven-car garage, gated entrance, an elevator and a panic room. Other than studying the Seahawks' defense, it's unsure what else he would visit his panic room for, but at least it's there.

It resembles the Magic Kingdom, but this monstrous estate actually belong to the three-time Super Bowl champion QB for the Patriots. The two-wing house covers an astounding 22,000 square feet and includes eight bedrooms, a six-car garage, a lagoon-shaped swimming pool with spa, an elevator, a nursery, a weight room and a wine cellar. The price of this miniature city was approximately $ 20 million and makes it the undisputed No. 1 NFL mansion.
