Dolphins’ New Millionaire Brian Hartline Still Works At Drive-Thru

Dolphins' New Millionaire Brian Hartline Still Works At Drive-ThruBrian Hartline will begin celebrating his new multimillion dollar contract, just after he takes care of this drive-thru order. Philly.com’s Justin Klugh noticed a very peculiar moment during the Miami Dolphins receiver’s Wednesday interview with Dan LeBatard.

‘Drive thru convenience store’

The two chatted about the recent contract Hartline signed with the Dolphins that ESPN reported was for five years and worth nearly $31 million. You can hear the segment at Philly.com, which features LeBatard launching into a discussion on what the team was doing this offseason. Well, the 26-year-old has no idea about the transactions, because he has been working.

Brian Hartline: Today I’m kinda busy. I’m working at a drive thru up in Ohio, freezing my butt off.

Dan LeBatard: You’re working in a drive thru?

BH: Yeah, you know, a drive thru convenience store?

DL: Yeah.

BH: That’s where I work.


‘Not spend a lot of money’

According to the report, Hartline got into the convenience store business back in January with his pal Jesse, who has been running stores like this since he was 15. Some of you might recall the story of Rams running back Terrance Ganaway, who is working at a Jimmy John’s in Waco, Texas, for the offseason, via the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

The 24-year-old, who received the minimum salary of $390,000 last season, said he is working at a sandwich shop because, “I just wanted to stay fit, stay out of trouble, and really just try to save money and not spend a lot of money.”

Now, how many high-earning NFL players do you know actually save and invest their hard-earned salary wisely? Brian Hartline’s drive-thru job despite his multi-million dollar contract — like or gripe?

Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson Had A Secret Link To The NFL!

Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson Had A Secret Link To The NFLWho cares about the Super Bowl when it’s duck-hunting season? That’s what “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson believes. He turned down a chance to play in the NFL to pursue his real passion: hunting. That later led to the formation of his business selling duck calls and other gear, which in turn led to his family being spotlighted on the A&E reality series.

‘Offer from the Washington Redskins’

Back in the late ’60s, Robertson was a quarterback at Louisiana Tech, starting ahead of a guy named Terry Bradshaw — who would later become a Hall of Famer with four Super Bowl rings. As detailed in Sports Illustrated, Robertson turned down an offer from the Washington Redskins his junior year to concentrate on duck hunting.


‘Duck feathers on his clothes’

Bradshaw recalls Robertson as someone who loved hunting more than football. In his autobiography, “It’s Only a Game,” the legendary quarterback wrote, “He’d come to practice directly from the woods, squirrel tails hanging out of his pockets, duck feathers on his clothes. Clearly he was a fine shot, so no one complained too much.”

Robertson’s quitting football worked out for everyone involved. “Duck Dynasty,” a hit for A&E that has catapulted his self-professed “goodoleboys” family into the spotlight.
