Former Air Force standout and current Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver Chad Hall isn’t standing around waiting for the NFL lockout to be resolved. He needs money, like right now, so he’s taking some measures to maintain a decent income, ESPN’s Rick Reilly reports.
First, Hall is offering his services as a personal trainer for his friends’ kids. But on the more adventuresome side, Hall is also looking into opening a wing joint in Atlanta with Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, who happens to be dating Hall’s sister.
And if the restaurant thing doesn’t work out, Hall may fall back on plumbing.
“If we don’t have a season, I’ll be waiting tables and bartending there,” he says. “Plus, my uncle says he has a plumbing job for me. Pays $15 an hour, so that’s not bad.”
I wonder if going back on active duty is an option?
