Unfortunately for Adrian McPherson, this picture was on page 1 of our Google Image Search for "Adrian McPherson". The women, of course, are of no relation to McPherson. Yesterday, on his birthday, The Austin American-Statesman reported that Adrian McPherson, the former Florida State phenom Quarterback, has been released by Arena Football's Austin Wranglers. This led us to take a look at McPherson's career thus far:
-McPherson named Mr. Football and Mr. Basketball in the state of Florida, the only athlete to ever win both honors
-McPherson signs with Florida State, where he would later become the starting quarterback and a point guard on the basketball team.
-McPherson arrested for stealing a blank check from T&T Truck Accessories in Tallahassee, forging it, and having a friend cash it for $3,500.
-McPherson kicked out of Florida State.
-McPherson put on trial for allegations that he bet on pro, and college sports (some say FSU games as well). He was acquitted.
-With the Indiana Firebirds, McPherson becomes the youngest player, 19, to suit up for the AFL.
-McPherson drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the fifth round.
-McPherson files suit for $20 million against the Tennessee Titans after being ran over by Tennessee Mascot T-Rac who was driving a golf cart "rocket ship" during preseason warm-ups. T-Rac's picture is shown above.
-McPherson signed to an AFL contract with the Austin Wranglers.
What does the future hold for McPherson? We can't help but to think that McPherson will return home to the Tampa Bay area and vie for the starting QB role with the Buccaneers. Or try out for the Tampa Bay Storm, or the Tampa Bay Bulldogs...
