While the NFL lockout lingers on, some Broncos find solace in the off season practicing with veteran safety Brian Dawkins, but David Bruton is spending his time in an entirely different manor -- he's being paid $90 per day to substitute teach at his old high school in Ohio.

Bruton received a one-year substitute teaching license so he can teach students from kindergarten through high school, The Denver Post reports.

In a statement made to The Denver Post, Bruton says about teaching:

I'm just trying to keep busy and it's nice to be able to give back to my community.

Bruton holds a Bachelor's Degree in political science and sociology from Notre Dame that he recieved in 2009, according to a Yahoo! Sports report.

However, the school year is almost over and Bruton may have to go back to just being another locked out NFL player in a few more weeks.
