DL Deatrich Wise Jr. said that the main thing he did after signing his contract (four years, base value $22 million) in March was pay off all his debt. That included a house he had previously purchased for his parents, Deatrich and Sheila. "Both made a lot of sacrifices to put my brothers and I in the places we are now.
