    He has had terrible injury luck. Just about the time he gets in a good situation he gets hurt. I keep thinking it will eventually work out for him, but it is looking more and more like it isn't going to happen for him.

    Being a clipboard holder, with the salary and retirement, and no CTE, is not the worst of worlds...

    His career earnings to date - $8.8MM. Not too shabby.

    I donít feel sorry for him. But I would like to see him get an opportunity.

    Years ago I talked with Cliff Stout. He sat behind Terry Bradshaw for 16-17 years. LATER...
    Cliff came to the Birmingham Stallions with great knees and hips.
    Cliff might have got splinters in his butt from riding the bench, but he was a great QB for Birmingham.
    Rollie Dotch (sp) was the Stallions coach Pretty good coach.

    I am an A.J. fan --- love his competitiveness, toughness, and ability to make the correct throw in any situations. However, if he were as good as I/we say he is, then he would be playing somewhere. He just doesn't have the arm talent to be a superstar or even a starter...he does have the mental ability to be a career backup and have a great life.

    FYI, this summer I reviewed on Youtube some of A.J.'s biggest games. He has nowhere near the arm talent of Tua...not even close.

    He had the Bengals winning a wild card game against the Steelers four years ago until Vontez Burfict committed a penalty on the last drive and gave Pittsburgh extra yardage. Trying to imagine what might have been if they had won that game.

    "IF" he has managed his money well he already has a good retirement. Anyone know how long you have to be in the NFL to get their retirement? RTR

    3 years, but it isn't as great as many assume. You get $5640 per year for each year in the league, maxing at 10 years. The 401k plan is amazing with a 2:1 match. This is where you can make bank, investing so much early in life and letting it grow.
