NFL player Terrance Ganaway has swapped his helmet for a hairnet to moonlight as a $7.50-an-hour employee in a sandwich shop.
The St. Louis Rams running back earns the minimum rookie salary of $390,000, but when he went back home to Waco, Texas, he took a job where he makes sandwiches, wipes tables and sweeps the floors at Jimmy John's restaurant.
He says he took the part-time job after joking on Twitter that he had too much free time and wanted something to keep him busy.
The restaurant's manager called his bluff and offered him a job - which he gratefully accepted.
To explain why he took the job, he said, "I just wanted to stay fit, stay out of trouble and really just try to save money and not spend a lot of money."
