Former LSU defensive end Jarvis Green is done playing football, but he’s not out of the spotlight entirely.
Following a nine-year NFL career that included a pair of Super Bowl rings with the New England Patriots, Green is set to debut a new shrimp product on QVC on Wednesday, July 19.

The business, called Oceans 97, came about after six months of intense shrimp training camp, according to Sporting News.
“I remember sitting on a line for eight hours a day hand-peeling shrimp, tearing up my fingernails,” Green told Sporting News. “Your skin gets stuck by the point of the shrimp. It’s like a needle, the head of the shrimp.”
But Green seems to be happy again after a long collegiate and professional football career.
“I never thought I would fall in love with the shrimp business,” Green told Sporting News. “Football was one thing, but what I’m doing now is priceless. If I had to do it over the same way, I would.”
