Jason Brown didn't leave the NFL due to a career-ending journey, but rather a higher-calling, one that did not involve all the fame or luxuries of professional spots.

He's apparently "in charge of the big door", but that just seems a bit vague, doesn't it? Even something as simple as "main door technician" would have made him look better on television.
