NFL Player Has to Mow Lawns

Bestselling Learn Guitar on Android! Marcell Dareus has been working the field, just not the way he expected. Due to the NFL lockout, the 21-year-old top defensive lineman for the Buffalo Bills has been forced to keep busy by landscaping for his godfather in Alabama. Dareus was chosen third overall by the Bills earlier this year, and if not for the labor dispute, would already be a millionaire by now. Instead, the former University of Alabama player — who stands at 6' 3'' and 300 lb — bides his time by mowing lawns and pulling weeds — the only gardener in Alabama with his own trading card. He rises at 6am every morning and keeps a dozen lawns in his suburban neighborhood well-manicured in the stifling Southern heat. "I'm really anxious about the season starting," said Dareus on CNN. "I can't wait to get to Buffalo to see the fans. I can't wait to get the whole feeling of the NFL. It's surreal." There are signs that the lockout could be coming to an end soon; the league's 32 owners are scheduled to meet in Atlanta Thursday July 21, where they are expected to vote on a new labor agreement with the players union.
