Career as an Uber Drive

On 4.22.2015 AJ sent a tweet that read, "Just applied to be an @Uber driver... I hope my background check goes well." This unleashed a social media backlash against AJ to which he tweeted the following, "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." While it remains to be seen if AJ will make it as an Uber Driver so far his NFL tenure has been riddled with injury.
