Shawn Andrews gets drafted

Earlier this year, the Eagles cut offensive lineman Shawn Andrews.

He now has a new job, if he wants one.  The Omaha Nighthawks made Andrews the first pick in the third round of the UFL draft.

The five-team league is tweeting all picks in the 12-round process.  The first selection was defensive end DeWayne White, who has spent seven season in the NFL but who currently has no job.

    would be a smart move for him. the dude has skills he just needs to get his body and mind right so he can get back to where he was

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!! He’s not even good enough to be a UFL 3rd Rounder!!!
    Wow, they are going to be totally disappointed…unless they want him for his musical abilities…which i must say are far worse than when Justin Faustino tried to become a rapper!!!

    Said a few years ago the guy was a beast.

    He would of been a great lineman for the birds if he wasn’t such a headcase.

    Poor guy. Give him a break, guys. He had elite talent and potential but his back injuries and the depression (possibly linked to some kind of spinal chord issue caused by his back injuries) ended his career prematurely. Sad to see a guy flame out because of something hardly under his control.

    Why no mention of their second round pick, Bernard Williams? Or their later round picks in Leonard Renfro or Mike Bellamy?
    He’ll last just as long as it takes for his salary to become guaranteed, not a minute longer.

    Will the Tuskers draft Usain Bolt??

  14. kpweaver27 says: Jun 3, 2010 12:08 AM

    The Florida Tuskers selects…the Rza..the Gza…Wutang Clan!!!

    If I were them, I would blow a 60th pick on someone like Brett Favre. In 10 years when the NFL dumps him, he can go play in the UFL.

    stylez white is his name

  17. BRICKILLIN says: Jun 3, 2010 4:26 AM

    @colts18
    Stylez still plays for the bucs…Dewayne left for detroit then got cut…different guys

    I won’t speak to whether or not he can come back and ever play with his back issues, but anyone who doesn’t think Shawn Andrews was a top TOP tier young OL before the injury is delusional. He certainly does not “suck.” He is a badass cut down before he even got to reach his potential, which woulda been SOOOOOOOOOOOO awesome for the birds, frankly/sadly.
