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.”
