He's an All-Pro back who strikes fear in the heart of defenders, a tough, intelligent veteran who has the undying admiration of the NFL's most respected runner. When we last saw him, he was returning heroically from a broken right fibula to play in the AFC Championship game, then heading to Hawaii to start for the conference in his third consecutive Pro Bowl.

Oh, and he's one of the NFL's good guys, a renowned locker-room leader whose off-the-field ventures include a private-transportation company designed to prevent drunk driving.

So why the hell can't Lorenzo Neal get a job?


"I feel like Rudolph," Neal says. "I'm getting left out of the reindeer games. And my red nose is my age. Because of that, they won't let me play."

Mike Alstott retires...TB possibly?

Maybe a Parcells guy?

It's age and there aren't as many offenses that use FB's as there used to be. Even if the team uses FB's they might not be willing to sacrifice as much of their salary cap as would be necessary to sign him.

I think he wants too much money to be a FB. Teams would be retarded not to sign him for vet min, and I bet he's not going for that.

It's a shame though because he was a pretty good blocker last year.
