Why didn't J.C. Watts go into the NFL?
I mentioned to my husband that he was a football player and his response was he must not of been very good. So I looked him up. He seems to have had a stellar college career -- why didn't he go the the NFL? Just curious.

1. He doesn't care for African Americans...
Well, it would explain his political leanings.

In all seriousness, he was drafted by the Jets, but they wanted him as a running back (in the days before black quarterbacks) so he skipped off to the Canadian Football League, where he could play quarterback. He wasn't half bad under the circumstances.
