Very cool story. I hope he succeeds. Funny how things happen in mysterious ways and suddenly your life is turned back around ^_^

NFL Films is also pursuing him.

Saw a short clip of him speaking, he does have a great voice. It was refreshing to hear him talk about how he made mistakes that landed him where he did. Nice to see someone face the consequences of their actions. Nice move by the Cavs, too, as they have long seemed sympathetic to the economic plight of their region / fan base.

Had. This morning on NBC's Today, he was on with his 90-year-old mother, who he hadn't seen in twenty years. His first commerical voice-over airs this weekend.
