KFC to Dwyane Wade: Work For Us

Dwyane Wade is looking for a new line of work. Because of the NBA lockouts, the Miami Heat star has been tweeting he's looking for gainful employment. His list of accomplishments include making balloon animals (who knew he was so talented?) and working well with others.

That's apparently enough for Kentucky Fried Chicken to want him back. According to TMZ, John Cywinski, general manager of KFC U.S., sent Wade a letter asking him to return to the fast-food chain. (Wade worked for the Colonel back in the day.)

In the letter, Cywinski says that while KFC can't match Wade's current salary, they would make a contribution in his name to Colonel's Scholars, KFC's charity that awards college scholarships. The gig: Work at a KFC drive-thru.

Perks of the job include wearing a cool uniform and possibly learning the KFC secret recipe. Let's see if Wade accepts.

Here's the full letter:
