And thus ends the career of one of the best human beings to ever play professional football. If there's ever a Hall of Fame for giving back to the community, he should be one of the first inductees.
Great guy, yes, but I loved to watch him play, too. Very sorry to see him go --- I blame Cat Fancy.
One of the best hummanitarians to ever play the game, I have so much respect for Warrick and I'd challenge you to find a better story or a guy with a bigger heart.
The coolest memory I ever have about Warrick Dunn was watching him in the Orange Bowl 15 years or so ago. FSU vs Miami.
One of the craziest plays I have ever seen, this little 170 pound or so RB is running through the hole when Warren Sapp from the U grabs the back of his jersey and pulls him back and throws him down. I don't think I've seen anything like it since.
Congrats on a solid Career Warrick. Hope you see you in DC at the Charity events some time.
Reminds me of the classic baseball manager prank with "dunn" and ready".
The Vikings need offensive line help, while the Bears, Lions, and Packers have significant defensive concerns.
