Wonder if coaching might be a possibility in his future?

I was wondering how much more he could take. He has been injured many times with the Saints. He plays a brutal position and 7 seasons, to me, is more than could be expected. Glad he had a great career and hope he doesn't have chronic debilitating consequences through the years.

Thanks for a great career and representing SMU so well. Have a great retirement.

OK, retirement over. Time to come back to SMU and help coach 'em up.

I believe his pension is fully vested. Good for him and his family.

Also, I read somewhere that he and some partner(s) opened a gym or training center in his hometown.

He did well.
First I'll want it. And then I won't want it.

Kelvin is at 32m
Thomas morstead at 30 mil

Trey Quinn probably won't be back with the Redskins next year. He didn't catch many passes and there was a knock on him that he was slow.

This is true. But giving credit where it's due, most of those guys fell into his lap one way or another. And for every great player he got, there were 2-3 that were sub d1a quality hose last few years.
I also refuse to give jones any credit whatever for Sutton..he said he wanted him at WR because of his ability as a blocker..

Only fell into his lap because no one else would take them. We were their only offers for most. Gotta give June a little credit.

Zach is a great guy. I herd and confirmed he is heading back to his HS to be the new H-Football-C. Zach has 3 little girls and his wife McKenzie was a SMU rower.

Some other updates from this SMU group ... just FYI. I apologize in advance for mass misspelling of many of these young men's names.

- Kevin Grenier and his wife Jessica (SMU Soccer) had new baby boy a few months ago. They live in CO and own a Anytime Fitness Center

- Joey Fontana was married this past summer. Joey is a Geologist in LA

- Cole Lofton and his wife had a baby (not sure M/F). Cole is in Ft Worth in the finance world

- Cameron Rogers and his wife Kelsey (also SMU grad) were married this past April. Cameron is working commercial real estate in the are for a company owned by former Cowboy Chad Henning. His wife works at Children's Hosp.

- We know were Margus is, but he had a little boy

- T-Reed got married to a former SMU Cheerleader (and Law Student, she is now a lawyer), they just had a baby also.

- Bryce Tennison is married with 2 kids and owns a bar in the Austin area

- Kyle P ... broke up with and then married the TCU Dance squad lady he dated while at SMU. Not sure what he is doing. Was trying to go into coaching, but I think he scratched that. Maybe in the finance world.

- Spike, still in Rugby, but working the last I heard with Nation Wide Ins

- Cody Worthen is in Houston working for his dads company "Field of Dreams". Dating and maybe to marry his HS sweetheart

- Stephan Sanders was working on becoming a pilot.

- Blake McKjunkin works (the last I herd), at the Watermark church.

- Jordan Free, was a strength coach for Nicholas State, but he is in Houston now the last I herd.

- Coach Rambo ... finally got engaged to the lovely lady he dated forever, and while he was playing at SMU

- Lincoln Shick is a geologist

- Pete Flepps is working for Management Consulting Company in the area

- Chase Kennemer .. Married pro golfer Kenny Perry's daughter, they have two, maybe a third .. but really cute kids. Chase was running part of his step dads automotive enterprise. Chase had a scare a couple of years ago and had to have open heart surgery .... and issue with a valve.

- Marquis Frazer is a teacher in the area ... Garland I think.

- Sterling Moore is retired the last I saw him this summer ... working on investing his money. Did get contacted by the new league, but not real interested right now.

- Ryan (Moxie) just got remarried and had a kid. Ryan is a CPA/investment advisor ... you talk about blowing up every stereotype that ever existed concerning a CPA .... MOXIE is a WILD Child. I think they found oil on his family's property in the Eagle Ford Shale area outside of San Antonio.

- Ryan Smith was working at Swell

Former Coaches .. the New Pro-League

Mason .. Suan .. Morris .. McKnight with June in Houston

Hal Mumme with Stoops in Dallas

Ganz and Bert Hill in Tampa

This is the best of my current knowledge ... it may not be 100%, but close.
