Dareus the landscaper

Marcell Dareus was one of the featured subjects in an story about what NFL rookies are doing while waiting to go to work in preparation for the 2011 season.

Dareus has been busy helping his godfather with his rather sizable property by keeping the lawn cut and the hedges trimmed.

“Everybody calls him ‘Sergeant,’ because he was a sergeant in the Army,” Dareus told the Associated Press. “At 6 o’clock in the morning, we’re up cutting grass. He ain’t playing. He’s crazy about keeping his yard cut. He has kind of a big yard. We cut it twice a week and trim his hedges. It’s an all-day thing.”

An all day thing because as Dareus put it Sarge is “old school” and has a push mower instead of a ride-on.
