It’s not unusual for a college quarterback to try and fulfill his dreams of an NFL career at a different position. The Ravens have a similar story with Xavier Lee, a one-time can’t-miss prospect out of high school that missed badly at Florida State and is trying to catch on in Baltimore.
A touching as the story would be, it’s not a good look when coaches are bad-mouthing you to local media.
“The willingness I think is there, but he’s got to understand he can apply himself more. He can use his time better. He’s got opportunities that he’s not taken advantage of. It’s my job to help him understand where those opportunities are and how he can take advantage of them.”
Add that in with the fact that Lee would is likely vying for a practice squad spot, and you’ve got a recipe for entry into the arena league.
