During Q&A’s with NFL players, many fans will ask what a particular player would be doing if he weren’t in the NFL.
Thanks to the lockout, we are seeing first hand what many players would do. From Ochocinco trying his hand, errr, foot at soccer to Dwight Freeny interning at Maxim, the sky’s the limit for these guys who are looking to keep busy during the offseason.
From the Broncos, David Bruton has been taking his role as a substitute teacher in Ohio very seriously. The league’s leading receiver last season, Brandon Lloyd, has been rapping and working as a sales rep for a Colorado based company that sells metal.
Here’s a look at what ten other players are doing to stay busy.
In lockout news, Roger Goodell and players’ union chief DeMaurice Smith met with NFL rookies at a symposium this morning in Florida. The two higher ups fielded questions from the first-year players as to when the lockout is going to end.
Union talks will run today through Friday in Minnesota, but many speculate that this joint appearance by Goodell and Smith is a good sign.
Many training camps are set to begin about three weeks from now.
