Default Re: Brett Hartmanns back with vengeance

Practically speaking, Hartmann can never work in the NFL again. I contend that he came to understand that reality and is now trying to capitalize on the circumstances. He suffered a season ending injury, which is tough when you are trying to get a job that only 32 people in the world can have. What really kills his chances, however, is the suspension. If a team were to give him a chance, they'd have to be willing to give him a spot on the roster and let him serve the 8 game suspension. He cannot serve the suspension while he is not on an active roster. That effectively ends his career.

Personally, I think the NFL needs to examine that scenario, because it truly does kill a kicker or punter's career. A team might give a linebacker or running back a chance as the 53rd guy on the roster, but no team is going to hold two punters for half a season and then cut the guy keeping the seat warm.

Hartmann knows all this. He knew before he filed this that he'd never play NFL football again.
