Matt ElamBaltimore Ravens star safety Matt Elam signed a $6.7 million contract last summer and just finished an outstanding rookie season in which he recorded 77 tackles for the 2012 Super Bowl Champions. So, how does he go about spending his offseason? You said it, working part-time at Finish Line in a Gainesville, Florida mall.

His motivation for this offseason move is simple, to gain some knowledge and experience for life after football. “I just need to get retail knowledge,” he told BaltimoreRavens.com. “That’s basically what I’m doing. I’m getting that knowledge for when it’s time.”

As someone who clearly does not need the money, many people have questioned why he would get an offseason job. “Everybody was surprised when I started,” he said. “They were like, ‘Why? You got enough money.’ But it’s to about the money. It’s just me building. I went to the store and I just talked to them and told them what my plan was. They were happy to hire me and they hired me two or three days later.”

Elam played football for the Florida Gators in Gainesville, Florida from 2010 to 2012 and is recognized by Gator fans everyday at the mall. “A lot of people have started recognizing me,” he said. “People will be being stuff just for me to sign it. It’s pretty exciting.” In 2012 he earned First-Team All-American and First-Team All-SEC honors for the Gators. Since being selected by the Ravens in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft he has been a key contributor on defense as the team’s starting safety.
