Oh, poor Quincy Carter. We mean that literally: Quincy Carter is poor. Why else would he be playing football for chump change in something called the “Intense Football League”?
According to the ABILENE REPORTER-NEWS, Carter’s new team is the “Abilene Ruff Riders,” which is, if we had to guess, a deft tip of the cap to Theodore Roosevelt and Dennis The Menace’s dog. Unfortunately for Carter, his salary is a long, long way away from the $455,000 he was making with the Cowboys and Dolphins a few years ago. In fact, it’s–oh wait, we spoiled the surprise in the headline. Yeah, $200 per game and a $50 bonus per win. Woo?
