What happens when the stadium lights go out and athletes decide to hang up their cleats for retirement?
Sources report that many struggle with life after football. But after digging around on LinkedIn, we were inspired to analyze how 2,000+ former players are repurposing their skills off the field into new career paths. It turns out that over 40% of former NFL players on LinkedIn take on some sort of entrepreneurial, sales or finance-related role. A further 18% continue their sports-focused journey as coaches or in related athletic professions.
