For 25 years Marcus Spears was an expert in one area — football.
His love for the game started at age six and he was able to make that dream a reality when the Dallas Cowboys drafted him in the first round of the NFL Draft.
He went on to successfully play in key games with the Cowboys and recorded all 10 of his career sacks in Dallas. He spent one season in Baltimore but after a year he officially said goodbye to football.
Since his retirement in 2013 the former Defensive Lineman has kept busy. From joining the SEC Network as a sports analyst, working his first desk job at age 29 to filming a reality show about his love for hunting (and yes, according to him, black people do hunt), the 6’4, 315lb Baton Rouge native has created an unlimited amount of opportunities that continue to keep his love for the game alive and well.
I talked to the LSU graduate about everything about domestic violence in the league, why he really left the game and what he would’ve done in #Deflategate.
