    Samardzija to give up Football

    http://msn.foxsports.com/mlb/story/6385348

    I guess he made everyone's decision pretty easy.

    Too bad, he had a great career ahead of him in the NFL.

    But goodluck to him in baseball.


    Thanks for the sig PurplePeopleEaters

    Good choice...probably much better in regards to avoiding injuries.
    Plus, if he flops as a pitcher, he can always come back to football...as a FREE AGENT...which means he can choose his team and auction himself off to the highest bidder.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Unless someone decides to draft him anyway and takes a flyer on him in the 7th round, ala Drew Henson.

    Someone will, and why not they have nothing to loose. especially with the history of players coming back into football.

    Big lefty pitcher.

    He'll have a long career and most likely make a lot more money than a white wide receiver.

    Edit: Turns out he's right handed.

    Hmmmm.....

    MLB = Guaranteed Contracts
    NFL = No Guaranteed Contracts

    I think he made the right choice.



    I was disappointed to see this had already been posted. I was hoping to post a thread titled "Notre Dame WR Jeff Samardzija signs with Chicago".



    oh, and GO CUBS!!!!!
