We all remember Kris Brown the stupid kicker who couldn't kick a field goal to save his life. He was cut in 2010 in favor of Neil Rackers and was out of the NFL completely by the beginning of the 2011 season.
What is he doing now? He, along with former teammate (for both Nebraska and the Texans) is setting up Dunkin' Donuts in the Omaha, Nebraska area. It is the first time the area has had Dunkin' Donuts in 20 years. It seems that we did not wait too long to start his post NFL career; he was released by the Cowboys in August of 2011, and starting setting up this project by January of 2012. I think it is great that a former NFL player decides to go into the business world, but especially immediately after his "retirement" or in his case, "kicked out" of the NFL. I hope it goes well for Brown, as long as his sales don't go "wide right". (yes that was a joke)
But what do you think about ex NFL players entering the business world? Some are successful, but many, MANY more are not. They go bankrupt. What do you think is the real problem with retired NFL players?
