Dolphins' Brian Hartline spending offseason manning Ohio drive-thru

The Miami Dolphins and wide receiver Brian Hartline agreed on a five-year deal last week that will make the 26-year-old a very rich man. That didn't stop the four-year pro from working his "dream job" in the offseason -- manning a drive-thru in Ohio.

Hartline joined the Dan LeBatard show Wednesday afternoon, and as the interview came to a close, the receiver admitted he'd had a hard time keeping up with all the Dolphins' offseason moves.

“Today, I’m kinda busy,” Hartline said. “I’m working at a drive-thru up in Ohio, freezing my butt off.”

“You’re working in a drive-thru?” LeBatard asked.

“Yeah, you know, a drive-thru convenience store?” Hartline said. “That’s where I work."

LeBetard -- who initially thought Hartline was kidding -- informed him that he could, you know, go ahead and quit that job. But Hartline said that he and a friend own the store and "somebody has to work it."

"It's the American Dream," Hartline, who plays football in the NFL, said of running a drive-thru convenience store. "Owning your own business."

Hartline jokingly said that he is "just trying to be the next Circle K."

Currently, the store -- Smart Stop -- doesn't carry skim milk or wheat bread.
