Re: Athletes who tried to become enterainers
The NFL has produced a few:
Merlin Olsen - TV's "Papa Murphy" and FTD spokesfellow
Fred Dryer - TV's "Hunter"
Alex Karras - George on TV's "Webster", the inimitable Mongo in "Blazing Saddles"
And who could forget famed entertainer O.J. Simpson, star of various car rental commercials, "Naked Gun" movies, and my favorite reality TV show of all time, "The O.J. Simpson Trial."
