Former Philadelphia Eagle Dhani Jones says his careers as a pro football player and a TV travel show host have made him better at both. And now he’s got a book that tells how.

“The Sportsman,” written with Jonathan Grotenstein, tells how the TV show, which  seemed like a distraction from his football career, actually served to “cross-train” him, enabling him to become a better, more globally aware person.

The self-proclaimed “travelholic” is on the road 100 days a year for his “Dhani Travels the Globe” show on the Travel Channel. It’s taken him to Thailand, where he tackled a style of kickboxing; Switzerland, for schwingen (wrestling); Australia for surf lifesaving; and Singapore for jai alai and dragon boat racing.
