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
Smokey (1h) : Week 8, tough Pickem week .
Zero2Cool (7h) : Packers promote S Whitehead to active roster
Zero2Cool (7h) : If no one posts, what's the purpose of a forum? Don't ruin what we have. Contribute!
Zero2Cool (7h) : But you have posted shouts, therefore your rule has been broken. Get over it.
uffda udfa (8h) : :) Shouting isn't posting. A different vehicle. I said I don't post in season. I haven't for years. Will shout and chat, though.
beast (8h) : Walker can probably go on the PS still
beast (8h) : and 2 8ths of an inch
steveishere (8h) : would be fine with signing Walker to replace Barclay
Zero2Cool (9h) : Josh Walker (OL- Packers, who previously reached an injury settlement) is now 100% healthy and worked out for Packers today
Zero2Cool (9h) : Damn, Geronimo is 6'3"?
Zero2Cool (9h) : You've used the site to voice yourself, no contribute like someone who has a pair! :-)
Zero2Cool (9h) : not sure why you feel you can shout but can't post in forums. mind boggling.
Zero2Cool (9h) : QB Joe Callahan to the Browns
beast (9h) : Is Zero arguing with himself again? ;) "linsley will take 53rd", "Don't think it will be Linsley"
uffda udfa (9h) : Glad Dakota gets to see his guy on the 53. Geronimo!
Zero2Cool (9h) : PackerReport says One spot to fill. Assume it will be a corner. Don't think it will be Linsley. Needs to get in football shape.
Zero2Cool (9h) : Linsley will take 53rd spot. WR Allison just filled 52nd
beast (10h) : Linsley and Callahan? (Just thinking out loud)
Zero2Cool (10h) : Packers roster down to 51 ... bet they wait two weeks to get back to 53, or activate Corey Linsley.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Can't get much more current than that, now can ya? BAHAHAHHAHAHA
Smokey (14h) : As current as yesterday's Win . (Giants/Lions became 4-3 teams).
