Atlanta — The L.A. Times is reporting on a story about Keith Fitzhugh, who turned down a chance to play for the New York Jets to work as a railroad conductor and spend time with his mother and father in Atlanta.
This week, the Jets made an offer to the free agent safety to join them as they make a run toward the playoffs and a possible Super Bowl berth.
He turned them down.
“I know I haven’t won a Super Bowl; it would be a once-in-a-lifetime chance,” Fitzhugh said. “But you only get one mom and one dad. That’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance. I’d rather be there for my mom and dad.”
