Today, some NFL players will make life-altering decisions. They’ll determine where they want to spend the next few years of their life, perhaps choosing to uproot themselves and their families in the process. When they decide to sign on the dotted line as a free agent, they’ll be picking a career path that will have huge long term implications.
Take the right road and a player could become a legend. He might win a Super Bowl, earn millions in endorsements and find his way into the collective heart of his new city. Head down the wrong way, however, and he could send his career careening off course. He might get mired in a losing situation, become a cap casualty due to poor financial management by the front office and forever be labeled as a “bust” by a fan base that just wants to see a winner.
