Default Warrick Dunn purchases stake in Falcons

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4750819

Quote:
The Atlanta Falcons announced Thursday that former running back Warrick Dunn will be a minority owner.

The team said the purchase has been unanimously approved by NFL owners. The deal should be finalized by March 1, 2010.

"This opportunity fulfills one of my professional goals to expand my knowledge and experience in the area of NFL team management, branding and operations," Dunn said. "I am excited to be back as part of the Falcons team and, in particular, to work with Mr. Blank."

Really cool, by all accounts Dunn's an outstanding individual. With so many former players blowing cash on stuff like failed restaurants I'm surprised there aren't more that go this path. Hopefully he can get involved with stuff like the competition committee and the rookie symposium.

Way to go Warrick. Always good to see a former player who handled his finances well. I was always a big fan of his.

A lot of them can't go this route even if they had the money to buy in. Owning a football team is a cash cow and you aren't going to see many owner's selling.
