Broncos safety David Bruton has taken a second job during the lockout, making $90 a day as a substitute teacher in his home town of Miamisburg, Ohio.
Bruton told the Denver Post he doesn’t need the money, but he does need something to do.
“I’m just trying to keep busy,” Bruton said, “and it’s nice to be able to give back to my community.”
Bruton graduated from Notre Dame before the Broncos drafted him in the fourth round in 2009, and he applied for and received a one-year substitute teacher’s license from the Ohio Department of Education this year. He says he’s enjoying his spring and making good use of extra time off during the lockout.
“I love kids,” Bruton said. “I’m just a big kid at heart.”
Let’s just hope he’s not still a substitute teacher in the fall.
