If your job paid $390,000 a year, would you spend your vacation working for minimum wage? That's what NFL rookie Terrance Ganaway is doing this off-season. After joking on Twitter that he needed a job, the Rams running back is now making sandwiches at a Waco, Texas, Jimmy John's, while training for the team. Why go from helmet to hairnet? "1. I have too much free time. 2. Tell my kids [someday] I worked two jobs to put them through school. 3. Cause the pay is really good," he tweeted. He's not entirely joking. "I just wanted to stay fit, stay out of trouble ... try to save … and not spend a lot of money," he said.

I think he is doing it right and I wish we could see more of this in the nfl.

Nice to see a story of a young nfl guy who isn't a complete idiot with his new money.

Sounds like a mix of common sense and practicality to me. I know I'd go crazy if I had an entire offseason in which I was responsible for my own motivation.

Fan Shout
beast (5h) : Packers have lived and died on their defensive front this season... if a team has a stud OL or good OL/WR combo the Packers have been in tro
beast (5h) : Based on your perfectionist analism every team but the undefeated Dolphins team is not a good football team
uffda udfa (6h) : What game we've played this year made you think we were anywhere near a SB contender much less a playoff team? At Minnesota? Maybe.
uffda udfa (6h) : Dallas is not a good football team. Who have they beaten, exactly? Cincy at home? We suck.
beast (7h) : And have not loss to a team with two losses. And, so both stats mean nothing at this point.
Smokey (9h) : Packers have not beaten a team with a winning record .
uffda udfa (11h) : ...but Giants secondary was banged up as bad as ours. Good against very poor comp. Not good at all vs. average or above.
uffda udfa (11h) : 17 looks better this year. Best I've ever seen him was vs. NYG this year.
uffda udfa (11h) : Davante Adams career game explained? Bausby, Pittsburg State. He's good vs. terrible CB's.
Mucky Tundra (22-Oct) : sometimes it doesn't work for me regardless if i hit enter or send
uffda udfa (21-Oct) : Checking to see if I've still been stifled here in Shout. :)
Porforis (21-Oct) : Being someone moderately critical of Adams, I feel the need to say "good game" and tip my hat.
Mucky Tundra (21-Oct) : oh shit, they play at TN the weekend before my birthday
Zero2Cool (21-Oct) : 4 of 5 next games ... on the road again
Mucky Tundra (21-Oct) : hey we actually play on the road next week
Zero2Cool (21-Oct) : 4 Teams who lost to Packers are 9W - 18L
Zero2Cool (21-Oct) : 2 Teams who beat Packers are combined 10 - 1 going into this weekend.
Zero2Cool (21-Oct) : Packers defense only gave up a FG. Not too bad.
TheKanataThrilla (21-Oct) : Go Cubs!!! Make this a good night.
Smokey (21-Oct) : Next up, Atlanta Falcons
Smokey (20-Oct) : The "CHAT" is very OPEN !
Smokey (20-Oct) : What's the story on Don Jackson ?
buckeyepackfan (20-Oct) : Good Evening Packer Fans! GAME NIGHT! Time to do a little Bear Hunting! z
Zero2Cool (20-Oct) : Mike McCarthy says 2011 CBA is cause of increase in injuries
Pack93z (20-Oct) : Did the moment it hit the timeline.. lol
Zero2Cool (20-Oct) : Nice. just RT it
Pack93z (20-Oct) : Alex Green reached out on twitter.. .lol
Porforis (20-Oct) : Or Ryan Grant?
Porforis (20-Oct) : Is Ahman Green available?
hardrocker950 (20-Oct) : Hard to say, just don't know if they will have him returning kicks when they are depleted at RB
Zero2Cool (20-Oct) : Knile probably contribute more on Kick Returns than RB. Until week 10
hardrocker950 (20-Oct) : I don't have high expectations of Knile, but I hope he surprises everyone
Zero2Cool (20-Oct) : No meltdown. Packers have Knile Davis, sub 4.4 speedster and Aaron is gonna get going.
Zero2Cool (20-Oct) : I think we should make more jokes about his weight, like every other sniveling bitch ass coward.
Pack93z (20-Oct) : Guy showed a ton of heart last week... dude was not just playing hurt. Should have been shut down.
