Life minus football: Brian Cushing

The AFC South blog asked Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing what he would be doing if there was no football in his life.

Here’s his reply:

“I think I’d be into the military and try to go to the highest rank possible, maybe be a Navy Seal. I’ve always had a super respect and I’ve always been fascinated by that. It’s something my dad did, he was in the Army. It's something I would like to do as well. I definitely like a challenge. Something like being at the highest level of football, I would try to replicate that somewhere else. I do swim a lot, and I grew up going to Long Beach Island, N.J.”
