What would you do if you ordered for an Uber car and it’s Brian Cushing or Tony Romo? ha ha
Well, if you’re in South Florida and you call for an Uber car, you might get Miami Dolphin’s Defensive Tackle, A.J. Francis!

A couple of days ago, A.J. tweeted “Just applied to be an @Uber driver… I hope my background check goes well.”
He is an avid Uber user and he’s been talking to the drivers while in the cars… and he said, “I’ve been using the app for two years, and every driver I talk to says it really helps supplement t heir income. It would be a cool way to get some extra cash.”
His other tweet said, “People ask me why would you want to be an @uber driver if you play in the NFL… You know what’s better than NFL money? More money.”
Francis was signed in 2013 to the Dolphins, but unfortunately he spent last season he on the injury reserves.
He’s ready to play, “I want to be a major contributor on the team,” Francis said, “I’m hoping to be the big run stopper they need. That’s my goal.”
Francis isn’t just trying for Uber and the NFL, he’s going to college to get his degrees.
