Default Scott Sicko Changes Mind

I'm sure you guys heard this story. New Hampshire TE was considered a great late value pick but it didn't happen. Right after the draft 5 teams came after him, including the Cowboys, who won him over. He told them and the other 4 that he had no interest in football anymore and that he was getting his post graduate degree instead. Well it looks like he decided playing some football was fine anyways and joined the Cowboys. I hope he makes it.

Scott Sicko, the University of New Hampshire tight end who gained Internet fame and infamy for turning down five free-agent NFL contract offers Saturday to pursue post-graduate education, has had a change of heart. He signed a contract Tuesday with the Dallas Cowboys.

"What can I say?" Sicko told me today from the UNH campus. "I changed my mind. I got very comfortable with the Cowboys over the last couple of days. And I made a compromise with myself."

Sicko was a Division I-FCS first team All-America tight end after his 55-catch, nine-touchdown season in New Hampshire last fall. He was considered a late-round prospect in last weekend's NFL draft. The New England Patriots held a private workout with him, and five teams -- the Chargers, Cowboys, Chiefs, Jaguars and Jets -- called him Saturday night with contract offers. But he said he decided late in the seventh round that because he hadn't been drafted, he would rather devote his time and energy to his studies and perhaps earn a masters degree and possibly a Ph.D. to begin a career as a history teacher.

There was nothing complicated about his change of mind, he said -- just a couple of persuasive coaches for the Cowboys. Dallas offensive coordinator Jason Garrett and tight ends coach John Garrett both talked to Sicko on several occasions over the past 48 hours and convinced him to give pro football a chance

"Over the last couple of days I had a few conversations with the Cowboys and I talked to my agent a couple of times," Sicko said. "They made me feel good about giving football a chance and that it would not ruin my plans for the rest of my life. Basically, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I realize I can probably do both and still accomplish my career goals."

Sicko said if he makes the Cowboys, he will take online classes in either Political Science or History to begin his graduate-school career. If he doesn't make the Cowboys' active roster or practice squad, he'll enroll this fall at one of the grad schools to which he has applied.

He probably got tired of being told he was acting like a douche.

The guy got butt hurt because he wasn't selected, point taken, but it looks like he finally smartened up. At the very least he got some pub out of it and now people will be following to see how he does.
