The Next Athlete-Politician?

Interesting Buffalo News profile of Bills guard Brad Butler.

Butler is closing in on a political science degree from the University of Virginia, and he spent the summer interning for former Congressman and former veep candidate Jack Kemp. Here’s what Kemp had to say about Butler:

“Brad is an absolutely charming guy, smart, witty, extremely humble and for lack of a better phrase, a gentle giant. I don’t think I’ve met a guy in professional football in a long time who has the same maturity, the same desire to build a post-football career and who thinks about the future and developing door-opening opportunities like Brad.”

It’s apparent that Butler is an ambitious and informed young man, and one day he’ll likely have a dossier worthy of political office. Here’s hoping his years in the NFL don’t rob him of his faculties.

  1. You cheater. You get to use BP to get about a billion views. It’s pretty darn good though, so I’ll let it slide.

    You call it “cheating,” I call it “freeloading.”
