Some NFL players let themselves go in retirement. Rob Konrad has apparently stayed in good shape. Because he just swam nine miles.
Konrad, who played fullback for the Dolphins from 1999 to 2004, was in a fishing boat in the ocean near Palm Beach on Wednesday when he fell out and swam to shore, according to Local 10 News.
The U.S. Coast Guard said Konrad was fishing alone and remained in the Atlantic Ocean for about nine hours, which is how long it took him to swim nine miles to safety. Konrad’s boat was on autopilot and drifted off and away from him after he fell.
Konrad made it all the way to the shore and is OK.
