Wow! Color us impressed!
Rob Konrad used to play for the Miami Dolphins, and it turns out he can swim like the sea mammal too!
The former fullback fell off a fishing boat on Wednesday evening, and it was on autopilot, so Konrad had to swim NINE MILES back to shore!!!

He swam 10 to 12 hours overnight, and was found at 4:40 a.m. on Thursday in Palm Beach, wearing only his underwear. When he was found, Konrad had signs of hypothermia and was taken to a hospital.
The Coast Guard and Palm Beach County Sheriff were already on the lookout for Konrad because his friends reported him missing when he didn't come back as scheduled.
The good news is that Konrad is A-OK, but he's made it clear that he doesn't want to talk about the incident.
We don't need him to talk, we just need him to LIVE, and that's exactly what he did! Just… WOW!
