As the final quarterback in the 2000 draft before Tom Brady and as a sixth-round draft pick, Wynn was always going to be a long shot. The Browns took a gamble on him, but it didn’t work out the same way it did for the Pats. His pro career got off to a casual start, seeing action in seven games, including a single start… which was a forty-eight-to-zero loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ouch.
While at the Browns, Wynn completed twenty-two of fifty-four passes for a hundred and sixty-seven yards, no touchdowns, and one interception. He was sent to the European league to help develop his skills and then got back into the NFL. He was a third-string quarterback on the Minnesota Vikings behind Dante Culpepper and Todd Bouman for two seasons. The only touchdown of his career in the NFL came on December thirtieth against the Green Bay Packers.
Vick’s time on the field was full of ups and downs from the moment he started playing for Virginia Tech Hokies after arriving in Blacksburg, Virginia. His extraordinary talent made him the No. 1 overall pick in the 2001 NFL Draft.
Vick was considered by many as one of the youngest players to show such skills on the field. However, he got involved in some crimes and legal troubles, which forced him to remain behind bars for some time.
Fly Like an Eagle
Afterward, Vick’s talent provided him with a second chance to be a part of the Philadelphia Eagles, and he went on to earn a Pro Bowl selection and Comeback Player of the Year award in 2010.
Eventually, under the Chip Kelly regime, he was benched and released by the Eagles. Vick retired in 2015 after playing for the last time in the NFL. He appeared on Fox Sports in 2017 for the FOX NFL Kickoff show.
Multiple Title Man
Wynn bounced around all over the football world until 2006 when the Toronto Argonauts let him go. After that, Wynn turned his focus back to the school. He was able to earn a bachelor of business administrator degree from Texas State, where he originally played college ball. He was always aware that football was likely going to be a short part of his life, and he wanted to be prepared for when the game ended.
In 2011, he earned an M.B.A. in energy risk management and energy finance from the University of Houston. Houston is known in some circles as the energy capital of the world, so the energy business was an easy choice for Wynn. He’s also put his sports experience to good use, as he’s the president of the coaching division at NextPage Sports, an agency that focuses on marketing and talent representation for college athletes and coaches.
Tee Martin was picked up in the fifth round of the 2000 draft, but he didn’t throw a single pass during his entire rookie season – not too uncommon. In 2002, he was sent to NFL Europe to play with the Rhein Fire, helping them get a league-best 7-3 record, though the team lost in the World Bowl to the Berlin Thunder. He went back to the NFL for a little longer and eventually landed with the Oakland Raiders before being released.
The next year, he was part of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, but that came to an end after a year. After only five seasons in the sport, Tee Martin was done. He netted a total of sixty-nine passing yards and thirty-six rushing yards and had one interception against a whopping zero touchdowns. He threw eight whole passes, and only three of them were properly caught.
