Vontae Davis – Quitter?

For the first time since his abrupt in-game retirement, former Buffalo Bills cornerback Vontae Davis speaks out about the moment he changed his life. “I went to…

I get that Vontae Davis wanted to go out his own way.  The thing is, it’s not something you can take back.  By walking out on his team and fans, Vontae Davis ended his NFL career just like that.  What he may not know is what he will feel down the line.  Vontae Davis is "free" now, as Davis said.  Ten years, from now where will he be?  Will regrets sneak up on him for leaving so abruptly? 

 

As a former player, retiring from the NFL was bittersweet.  No more pain.  No more meetings.  No more stress. Also, no more checks.  No more camaraderie.  No more games.  It hits you later.  It hits you hard.  

 

Good luck to you, Vontae.

Warning for NFL Rookies

Another sad story about a young NFL player

By JUAN ROQUE   JAN. 5, 2017

The NFL suspended troubled Dallas Cowboys Defensive End Randy Gregory today for a minimum of one year. This recent suspension comes after he sat out 10 games in 2016 for the same reason after serving a 4 game suspension in 2015. Gregory, like troubled Cleveland WR Josh Gordon, has now wasted nearly a full season of NFL experience (and pay) for his bullshit off the field.

Gregory has had a history of problems with Marijuana since he entered the NFL after starring at Nebraska. Considered a high end prospect with a First Round grade on many lists he started his pro career off in the worst of ways; he failed a drug test at the Combine. That failed test assassinated his draft stock and he was drafted 60th Overall in the Second Round by the Cowboys.

The uber talented player with endless potential seems to have an issue with prioritizing his life. He took to the wrong veteran as a rookie hanging with accused and acquitted NFL outcast Greg Hardy and hasn’t done much since arriving in Dallas. What makes this situation all the more tragic is not many have his combination of size, strength and speed. He’s still young and can have a future in football but like Josh Gordon his time is running out. If he doesn’t make changes in his life Gregory will be another cautionary tale told to Rookies about what not to do when becoming a pro.

Sad news about  former New York Jet Dennis Byrd.   He was involved in a head on crash and has passed away.  You may remember Byrd is the defensive end who suffered a fractured vertebrae in 1992 against the Kansas City Chiefs.  Doctors at the time said he may not walk again  but he proved them wrong.   Dennis Byrd was 50 years old.  RIP
