NFL Player Gives Up $37 Million Contract To Be A Farmer. Listen To His Reasons…

Jason Brown has one of the coolest, most unusual stories you'll read about today, and the best part is that his path was totally unexpected.

Brown used to be in the NFL, playing for the Baltimore Ravens and the St. Louis Rams from 2005-2011. In fact, with his $37.5 million dollar deal, he was the highest-paid center in the history of the industry. After he'd made a cool, $25 million from that contract, the Rams cut him. That opened him up to play for another team for another major contract.

Instead, Brown decided to quit football entirely. What he's doing now may not surprise you, but it will definitely bring a smile to your face.

Here's another man who gave up his large salary for a totally different life.
