Ryan Moats has another career in mind when he's done playing football.

Moats is a backup running back, just trying to make the roster in his first year with the Minnesota Vikings. His self-declared second passion? Developing video-game graphics.

Moats talked his way into an internship with EA Sports as a rookie, helping design parts of the popular Madden football games. Moats says he hopes to find a job in the field once his NFL days are done.

Players often get fired up about their ratings in the game, with a new version coming out each summer. Moats says he didn't have any input into that, though.

During training camp, Moats doesn't have time for video games. But during the offseason, he says his wife has to pull him away from the console.
