Jason Brown gives up the NFL to be a farmer

Jason Brown was once one of the most reliable centers in the NFL. But according to Sporting News, these days Brown spends his time farming and harvesting free food for the hungry. In 2009, the Rams signed Brown to a five-year, $37.5 million contract. However, three years later the team decided to go another way and released him. But instead of going to another team, Brown decided to try his hand at farming. He purchased a 1,000 acre farm near Louisburg, N.C. and uses it to feed the needy. In fact, in one weekend this month, Brown gave away 46,000 pounds of sweet potatoes and 10,000 pounds of cucumbers. Brown says he has never felt more successful, adding “Not in man’s standards, but in God’s eyes.”
