From a billionaire baseball player to a critically-acclaimed writer to a police officer with the Miami PD, we profile some athletes with awesome second careers!

Athletes With a Second Career - Shaquille O'Neal

If you ever see a police officer in Miami that resembles Shaq, chances are it IS Shaq. Besides being the most dominating force in the NBA, Shaq has trained to be a police officer. In the off season, he does routine police work and has even helped catch an internet sex predator. Shaq has always had a fascination and respect for law enforcement since a lot of his immediate family works in the field. Shaq says when he is retired from the NBA, he wants to be a sergeant or possibly go undercover. We think he should stick to being a sergeant because for some reason, we're not sure working undercover would really work for him...

Athletes With a Second Career - Paul Shirley

Paul Shirley is a [KWLINK ]professional basketball player[/KWLINK] who has played in a total of 18 NBA games over four years. While he may not be the best player in the NBA, he could quite possibly be the best writer. As a member of the Phoenix Suns in 2005, Paul started writing a blog for the team's website. His blogs became an instant hit across the nation for his humor, wit and [KWLINK ]impressive vocabulary[/KWLINK]. He signed a deal to blog for the ESPN website and has also appeared in USA Today, Wall Street Journal and Esquire Magazine. His story is the idea of a possible TV show, and his autobiography titled "Can I Keep My Jersey?" will be released in April 2007.

Athletes With a Second Career - Matt White

Major League pitcher Matt White's bankroll makes Alex Rodriguez's $250 million look like chump change. Matt White has a fortune that is worth $2 billion! But it's not an MLB team that is paying Matt those big bucks. A few years ago, Matt invested $50,000 on a piece of property in Massachusetts. It turns out that Matt hit the jackpot with that real estate move, as $2 billion worth of goshen stone (a type of rock used for landscaping) was found on the property! Right now, Matt is fighting to earn a spot on the Los Angeles Dodgers' roster, but even if he gets cut, we have a feeling Matt will be alright!

Athletes With a Second Career - Keith Bullock

For years, Tennessee Titans linebacker Keith Bullock has been interviewed by the media. He must like being behind the camera, because Keith plans to spend a lot more time behind it as a sports broadcaster when his NFL career is over. But Keith's not waiting for his retirement to get started on his dream - he has already co-hosted a few TV specials on the Titans. After every practice, he takes some time to talk to the media that is present at the practice and learn from them.
