CHICAGO (CBS) NFL players have a lot of extra time on their hands due to the current work stoppage resulting from the lockout. The Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers is making interesting use of his extra time.

According to Milwaukee’s 620 WTMJ, Rodgers has started his own record label, Suspended Sunrise Recordings.

“My business partner and I have been working for a couple of years trying to put this whole thing together,” Rodgers said. “We’re excited about starting the process, to see what happens with this band. Obviously football is my first priority, music is my passion after that.”

The label’s first band is “The Make,” based out of Rodgers’ hometown of Chico, Calif.
