Clayton Echard job

Would you look at that? According to his Instagram bio, Clayton was a former freestyle rapper! However, it looks as though he abandoned his music dreams to become a professional athlete. But when this career path didn’t work out, he landed on being an orthopedic sales representative.

According to Us Weekly, Clayton played football for the University of Missouri, and later signed as a free agent with the Seattle Seahawks. Though this didn’t work out in the end, he did get to play in preseason games.

These multiple career changes let us know that Clayton is a man of many talents and is certainly a jack of all trades. It’s safe to say that he can now add “Bachelor” to his impressive ever-growing career list.
