NFL players often spend the offseason recuperating from injury or trying to simply maintain their physicality through training. Some, however, go above and beyond to make good (we use the term loosely) time of the offseason.
Here, in a special edition of A Handful of Reasons, is a handful of books written by NFL players in the offseason.
Tony Romo tells us he loves teaching difficult techniques to people who aspire to be great at something… anything. In light of this, Romo has spent the entire NFL offseason completing another in the Complete Idiots Guide series.
“The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Being a Complete Idiot.”
Not to be out-done. Matthew Stafford has completed not one, but two books this offseason. His first, “Great Expectations” has been followed closely by it’s sequel “Great Disappointments.”
Dez Bryant has spent an entire season and another offseason mulling over his concept for a great book idea. This offseason Dez has finalized a deal with Penguin Publishers to publish his new book “The Non-Catcher in the Rye.”
Becoming more playboy and model than football player, Rob Gronkowski has completed his masterpiece “50 Shades of… Shades.”
Jay Cutler writes “Diary of a Whimpy Kid: An Autobiography.”
