Gardner Minshew Plans to Sell His Bus
Now that training camp has arrived across the NFL, it’s time for Gardner Minshew to part ways with his beloved bus … and home. The quarterback revealed that he plans to sell the house-on-wheels to a good home.

Minshew said that it received great reviews during its latest inspection. The bus has logged around 146,000 miles on the road and he’s putting it up for sale for $25,000. To close out his post, you can tell Minshew’s home for the past five months still holds some sentimental value.
“More than anything, I just want to see her in a nice and loving home,” he wrote.
