Most NFL players use their week off to take a tropical vacation to get away from the rigors of a full season.
However, Miami Dolphins linebacker Elandon Roberts took advantage of his team’s week off to attend the opening of his new business, Spindletop Concrete, located at 800 Old Ferry Road in Port Arthur.
Roberts teamed up with Roosevelt Perry, former State Senator Carl Parker; his son Allen Parker, mechanical engineer Wayne Holman; and John Eric Petry, an electrical engineer who previously worked with Lockheed Martin and NASA.

businessman Artrell McCullar and Lawrence Richard, who is retired from Jefferson County after working with roads and bridges; are also part of the group.
The company is located on 20 acres which will eventually include an asphalt plant and a concrete crushing plant.
Spindletop Concrete plans to employ 20 drivers, a front-end loader and a full-time diesel mechanic for its staff in the near future.
