MERRILL: A new Crosby show

A new Crosby show
Ex-Royals prospect takes shot at NFL
By ELIZABETH MERRILL The Kansas City Star


Maybe Roscoe Crosby will find his way to Kansas City after all.

Crosby, a former Royals prospect, held a private workout for a scout from the Chiefs and representatives from 17 other NFL teams last week, his agent, Kevin Parker, said Friday.

Once the No. 1 wide receiver prospect in the nation, Crosby is now known in Kansas City for baseball and the career that never really happened. The Royals made him a second-round pick in the 2001 amateur draft and gave him a deal that included a $1.75 million bonus. But Crosby never played in the minors because of an arm injury, and the Royals recently won an appeal to void payments totaling $750,000 in signing bonuses.

A former Clemson star, Crosby is on the Royals’ restricted list, meaning the team still holds his baseball rights. The outcome of arbitration, Parker said, helped Crosby make the decision to go back to football. He hopes to be picked in Thursday’s supplemental draft.

“He was pretty much stuck,” Parker said. “He wasn’t going to be held down.

“Roscoe is a professional. When the Kansas City Royals drafted him, he was 18 years old. Whatever happened or didn’t happen, that was then. He’s 22, he’s matured. … He’s very much at peace, and he’s excited.”

On a sweltering day in South Carolina last week, former NFL quarterback Shaun King zipped passes to Crosby while the scouts watched. He ran a high 4.4 in the 40-yard dash and bench-pressed 225 pounds.

The Chiefs spent part of the summer looking for receiving help after they cut Johnnie Morton on June 2. They picked up Freddie Mitchell near the end of minicamp, but on a roster dotted with inexperience, Crosby may be an intriguing draft possibility.

When asked whether Crosby would object to going to Kansas City, Parker said, “(David) Glass doesn’t own the Kansas City Chiefs, does he?”

Crosby, a 6-foot-2, 218-pounder, hasn’t played a full season of football since 2001, when he set freshman records at Clemson for receptions and receiving yards. But Parker said Crosby has shaken off the rust with an intense workout routine, and they’re confident he’ll land somewhere.

“I’m not making him ,” Parker said, “but he has some gifts that made him a hot commodity in both sports.

“Whether it’s in the draft or free-agency, he’s going to be in somebody’s camp in July. That’s a given.”

I was benching 210 my freshman year of high school. And I'm nowhere close to being a big guy.

Is he like 6'3" and 120 lbs or what?...

He did 18 reps of 225. The article misses that.

He got injured, and the Royals won an appeal to get out of paying him almost half of his bonus. What's the problem?

Sure, I would. But I bet he goes for no lower than a fourth, maybe even a third. Someone will take a flyer on a guy who is 6'2, 210 lbs, and can run a sub 4.5.

I emailed Liz and she replied to say it probably shouldn't have been in the article at all, since she didn't know how many reps.

I'm sure Roscoe agrees.
