Listened to him this morning on local radio here in Atlanta.
He just finished getting his MBA from Emory University. A very prestigious school. Dunn is a very good humble guy.

I guess that's one more reason to like him since Im an Emory grad, as well...kudos to him! I remember hearing about his mom being killed and how it affected him. He used it as the inspiration to create a program where they build houses for the needy, IIRC. Just a great guy all-around....and wasn't a bad football player, either.

Absolutely. And as a football player, Dunn was smaller than CJ but he had tons of touches in his NFL career AND had a long career.

I personally don't believe we should burden CJ with more than 15-17 touches per game which is what Warrick Dunn did. He is the ONE smaller finesse back who stood up to a fairly heavy workload.

Dunn was 5'9" 190 pounds and played 12 seasons. He played in 181 games and had 3199 total touches which averages to 17.6 touches per game.

That would be funny if midway through CJs interview he left and Freddy jumped in.

I still remember back in the year he was drafted, I was REALLY wanting us to draft Antowain Smith...so when Tampa Bay took Dunn a few picks earlier, I was glad about that. Antowain was a decent RB, but would have been so cool to have drafted Dunn instead. As you pointed out, he was just a little guy..I really never would have guessed that he would have been as durable and productive as he was. He and Alstott were a pretty nice tandem for TB
