OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Eric Crouch says he’s finished with football.
The 33-year-old Crouch has made several attempts to stick in the pro ranks since winning the 2001 Heisman Trophy at Nebraska.
Crouch tore the lateral meniscus in his left knee while playing quarterback for the United Football League’s Omaha Nighthawks in September. He said Monday that his goal is to be able to do “country-club workouts” and play racquetball and pickup basketball again.
He said he doesn’t see himself playing football again because he doubts a pro team would give him another opportunity.
Crouch was a third-round draft pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2002. He was with three NFL teams but never played a regular-season game and had last played in the CFL in 2006 before he signed with the UFL.
