Scott Sicko, undrafted, turns down Cowboys and other teams, decides against playing in the NFL

6

Scott Sicko leaves football after not being drafted. "But as the final day of the NFL Draft progressed Saturday, and Sicko continued not to see his name pop up on ESPN, that easy answer to The Question grew hazier, then clearer. And when the NFL finally called – and called and called and called – late in the afternoon, Scott Sicko’s response shocked his agents, the teams but in the end not himself. Thanks, but no thanks." Quotes from him indicate that the move is not petulance, but rather a realistic appraisal of the life and length of career the average undrafted free agent experiences. "Not getting drafted, he decided, provided a new clarity, a different answer to the question of whether he wanted to get started on his life after football. "If I were to be drafted I would have had more confidence of a much longer career in the NFL," Sicko said. "I have to look at my life and decide what will make me the happiest. And the thing that will make me the happiest now and in the long run is to pursue my education."
