Priest signs with Atlanta

More than a year after his college career ended, Rafael Priest's NFL career has finally begun- he signed a contract with the Atlanta Falcons today. After starting for four years at TCU, Priest's transition to the next level was apparently derailed by an injury he sustained in the Fiesta Bowl against Boise State. Always good to hear about a Frog getting a chance in the NFL, especially one that I think we all thought the league had overlooked. Best of luck, Rafael!

I think his injury was before the Fiesta Bowl. He didn't play in it.

Ah, my bad- most of that game has been stricken from my memory.

No worries, not trying to be nit-picky. I get a head ache if I even hear the words Fiesta Bowl.
