Florida's Jeff Demps has decided to drop football in favor of pursuing his Olympic dreams in track and field.
Demps, who has started training with Florida's track team, will not partake of any college all-star games, NFL workouts, etc. He will spend all his athletic energy attempting to secure a spot with the U.S. Track & Field team. Demps was slowed by an ankle injury this season and finished with 991 all-purpose yards and 7 touchdowns to give him 3,553 yards and 25 TDs for his career.
This is disappointing, I really wanted us to look at demos as a RB/WR type player who could also return kicks.
Hopefully the prospect of making money in the NFL will change his mind.
