13:52 PT – TMZ Sports spoke to Marlon’s father, Bobby, about the emotional moment … and tells us he didn’t realize how much his son enjoyed all the life lessons he has shared over the years.
Bobby says it made him cry on hearing Marlon’s kind words … and shared what it feels like to hear the great news.
Oh yeah … we also had to ask if Bobby was expecting anything special from $ 98 Million Man … and he has a fantastic answer !!
Corner of the crows Marlon Humphrey gave a raw and emotional scream at his dad after gaining a HUGE new extension on Thursday … thanking dad for always wanting the best of him.
The 24-year-old former Alabama star just signed a 5-year extension worth $ 98.75 MILLION … and choked back tears as she praised those who helped make the life-changing deal possible.
Humphrey began by thanking those within the organization – from the coaching staff to the front office and property – but the water features started coming when he raised his father, a former NFL Bobby Humphrey.
“My dad kept me in line,” Marlon said. “Since I was young, I have told my dad that I wanted to play in the NFL and he has never let me slip.”
He continued … “My father was so much more than just a father. He trained me as a child. He was actually my everything to me, along with my mother.”
“I really thank him very much for what he has done and I know he will continue to be a great father to me and I hope someday I will have a family that can treat my sons and daughters the way my father and brothers treated me and sisters “
Humphrey emerged as one of the best defensive sides in the game in 3 full seasons with the Ravens … racking up 8 interceptions and 150 tackles.
Maybe buy dad something nice with that new money ??
