Rookie quarterback Tommy DeVito says living with his parents is a no-brainer for him. 

DeVito grew up in Cedar Grove, New Jersey, which is less than 10 miles away from MetLife stadium. He claims that “everything is handled” for him at home. 

“I don’t have to worry about laundry, what I’m eating for dinner. Chicken cutlets and all that is waiting for me when I get there. My mom still makes my bed. Everything is handled for me. Honestly, I don’t even know if I could find a place closer to here than where I live. It takes me 12 minutes to get here,” DeVito told ESPN. “Everything that I need is there at the house. The decision was made, since this level of football is stressful for a rookie, especially from the quarterback position. There is a lot going on, a lot of meetings. So everything outside of football is handled by my family.”

While living in Cedar Grove as a high schooler, DeVito was a first-team all-state player at Don Bosco Prep. He would later spend five years at Syracuse and one year at Illinois during his time as a college quarterback.
