Former NFL tight end signs contract with Professional Basketball Team after comments from Austin Rivers

Austin Rivers, a former NBA basketball player, took a shot at NFL players earlier this week, saying he could name 30 NBA players who could be playing in the NFL right now. He then said you can’t put 30 NFL players in the NBA.

“I can take 30 players out of the NBA right now and throw them into the NFL,” Rivers said. “You can’t put 30 NFL players in the NBA.”

The funny thing is, a few days after Rivers commented, a former NFL tight end signed a contract to play overseas with a professional basketball team.

Devin Funchess becomes the first NFL player to sign a professional basketball contract. He signed a contract with the Caribbean Storm Llaneros. The team is part of the Professional Colombia Basketball League (Baloncesto Profesional Colombiano) and signed Funchess to a contract for their 28-game season.

This is a start! It will be interesting to see how it turns out.
