UNEMPLOYED FOOTBALL PLAYER
The Steelers' All-Pro safety is nursing his wounds this spring after losing the Super Bowl to the Packers and being locked out by the NFL.
Dan Patrick: Where are you right now?
Troy Polamalu: I'm down at Minnesota Twins spring training.
DP: Are you taking batting practice?
TP: No, I haven't fully healed from my Achilles injury. I don't know if it'd be a good idea to make it worse by doing BP.
DP: Is there a baseball player out there that you think could play in the NFL?
TP: There are a lot of great two-sport athletes. Joe Mauer was a player of the year in football and baseball. Someone like him could have been just as successful as a quarterback in the NFL. He made the smart decision because he's got a job right now.
DP: Are you officially unemployed?
