NFL Free Agent Justin Durant Fills Out Fast Food Employment Application
Free agent linebacker Justin Durant played for the Detroit Lions for the past two seasons. Durant hopes the team will re-sign him, but he’s not taking any chances just in case. On Thursday, Durant jokingly filled out an employment application at Chick-fil-A and tweeted that, you know, it’s rough out there for an NFL free agent these days:
Rough outchea bruh twitpic.com/cbatys

After explaining to his followers that he was unable to get a “sammich” at the fast food chain, Durant said he just grabbed the application and a cup of water. One helpful follower then tweeted that Chick-fil-A employees get a free sandwich every shift. That is serious incentive, especially for a football player who just finished up a two-year, $5.5 million contract.
We’re pretty sure that Durant will land with some team, but it’s nice to see he has a back-up plan just in case the whole football thing doesn’t work out.
