We've been hearing bits and pieces about what some of the Kansas City Chiefs players are doing during the NFL lockout. From Matt Cassel organizing workouts, to Eric Berry promoting a friend's book, to Jamaal Charles' flag football tournament, many of the Kansas City Chiefs players are staying busy.
Bruton applied for and received a one-year substitute teacher's license from the Ohio Department of Education, clearing him to take short-term assignments in classrooms for students in kindergarten through high school.
The salary is a bit less than his NFL pay - $90 a day. Bruton literally started substitute teaching less than two weeks ago:
His first call came May 12 to split time between two second-grade classes in an elementary school in the Dayton suburb. He was called again Friday, this time to teach social studies and a credit-recovery class - for students who have fallen behind - at Miamisburg High School, where he graduated in 2005.
Division rival or not, it's completely refreshing to hear about Bruton's approach. I was getting sick of seeing NFL players' party posters pop up on Twitter searches.
