Former pro football play falls off fishing boat, swims to shore

Former NFL fullback Rob Conrad, who played for the Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders, fell off a boat and swam for hours to the Palm Beach County shore, he told Palm Beach police.

Konrad said he left the Hillsboro Inlet in Deerfield Beach solo around 10:30 a.m. Wednesday and that around 1 p.m. he tripped and fell overboard as his 36-foot Grady-White, which was on autopilot to the Bahamas.

Friends became concerned when he did not return by dinnertime.
