NFL Player Gives Up Football for Jesus
NFL third round pick, Glenn Coffee has retired after just one year of playing professional football because of his faith.
My initial thought were of sadness for him and his family that, because of a delusion, he's turned his back on a financially secure career that would have been a good foundation for his life. However, thinking about it, maybe from a purely money perspective, he's doing the right thing. He signed a four year contract for $828,000. Now that's not chump change, it's only for four years and an equally talented individual, say a Wall street wizz would be getting that for a life time. In leaving the NFL and turning to a life of spreading the virus... I mean "message" of Jebuz, Coffee will be able to milk his story for the rest of his life.
The only difference of course is that a sports star earns his money by entertaining people. A preacher earns his money by lying to people.
