Troy Smith isn’t giving up on his NFL future
Posted by Josh Alper on July 5, 2012, 10:38 AM EDT

There’s no easier way to point out the differences between the NFL and college football than by pointing to the list of Heisman Trophy winners.

College football’s biggest award doesn’t always go to the best player in the country, but it always goes to a player who has reached the highest levels of success at the collegiate level. Names like Jason White, Eric Crouch, Matt Leinart and Danny Wuerffel are all reminders that success at one level guarantees nothing at the next level.

Troy Smith’s name belongs on that list as well. The former Ohio State quarterback is unemployed again after getting cut by the Steelers, making it three teams that have moved on from the 2006 Heisman winner who spent last season as a backup in the UFL. As mentioned in Thusday’s one-liners, Smith told Bill Lubinger of the Cleveland Plain Dealer that Pittsburgh’s decision isn’t going to stop him from keeping the NFL dream alive.

Don't worry, Troy. After the Browns play us a couple of times this season they'll be in need of a new tackling dummy.... er.... QB shortly thereafter.

Till then, just keep polishing your Heisman and telling everyone how you haven't been given a shot..... by 3 NFL teams now.

"Polishing your Heisman" sounds dirty
