Player goes undrafted, says no thanks to teams

Can you retire without ever getting drafted?

UNH tight end Scott Sicko essentially did that Saturday after he failed to get taken on day three of the draft. He had numerous offers from teams such as the Jaguars and Jets. His agents even had a deal agreed to with the Cowboys at one point.

But Sicko surprised his agents and the Cowboys with his response.

If he wasn't drafted, he didn't want to play football. The Cowboys tried to personally appeal to Sicko, but it didn't work.

"If I were to be drafted I would have had more confidence of a much longer career in the NFL," Sicko told the Albany Times-Union. "I have to look at my life and decide what will make me the happiest. And the thing that will make me the happiest now and in the long run is to pursue my education."

Same thing happened with Munoz' kid. If he has brains he should be alright in the long run.

Fuckin' Sicko.

I wonder if John Randle wishes he had made the same choice.

Was this guy even on the radar? He doesn't show up anywhere on the NFL Draft Tracker as a prospect, and UNH is listed there with zero prospects. I'm thinking this kid got his hopes up waaaaay to high.

Goodbye, come back when you can't stay so long

Wow, what a HUGE loss for the NFL and it's fans.............wait.

:facepalm: good grief.....plenty of undrafted rookies make teams each year.

He definitely makes the NFL All Great Name Team. He's right up there with "He Hate Me" and "Harry Colon."

Priest Holmes.

That should have been enough inspiration for him.

this guy should realize that not all guys even get offers from teams. if he really wanted to be in the league he would've taken that offer. it seems like even if he was drafted his heart wouldnt have been in it

There was a tight end from Penn state in the late 80's who I believe made the Cowboys practice squad but decided to hang up his cleats and focus on engineering. Forget his name.

I don't see the big issue. The guy doesn't have the confidence now to believe he would stick. If that's the case he's probably right.
Props to him for going after what he wants to do.

shit, take the 30 grand and give it a go. What's the worst that can happen?

There were 21 other TE's considered better plus Tebow as a TE.

Sometimes a player may be better off not being drafted than picked as a 7th rounder.
The freedom to find the best fit.
