    Four days? I’m sure that can fill in the gaps of the sham education these guys received while “student-athletes”

    Of the players who participated, twenty three were given the boot.

    Boot camp was hell. “All day you’re up in someone’s grill, firing live questions. Don’t these guys ever brush their teeth? And the body odor, don’t get me started on that….”.

    To get any real paying broadcasting job you usually need name recognition or be very good. Great to have options for these guys when they get done with football but I think a finance class and investments would better serve them.

    Maybe analysts and play by play folks should attend too.

    And you say the NFL doesn’t do anything for its former players….but really, those guys are an untapped resource of knowledge. You just gotta mold and shape them for public consumption.

    Rich guys taking jobs away from regular folks…

    So it’s for players whose careers ended unceremoniously…and now they can’t seem to find work anywhere else?

    Got it.
