That was interesting... especially the part about what Shannahan wanted him to do. I wonder how true that is.

Is he still playing? I haven't heard much from him in quite a while.

He's been out of the league for three years or so.

I really didn't care for him... I'm sorry if he trusted someone and they took his money, but
that is why so spread out your money and make sure a chunk is safe.

The guy seemed really lazy and had a bad attitude for the Redskins ...

I hate to see talent wasted...I guess that is part of the reason I root for underdog guys who make the most of
what little chances they get.

Interesting. I like hearing his side of things...makes him seem much more human.

I enjoyed hearing that he's found something he loves doing, and that hanging drywall in a condo or a house he is flipping makes him happy. Its not good how much emphasis is placed on making lots of money or being famous, when none of that is what creates happiness in the real world. There's an illusionary world that is growing more and more powerful these days.

I couldn't agree more.
