For most NFL fans, that original dream of becoming a big time quarterback, wide receiver, or running back never really dies.
Everyone always wishes they could have made it, and for the precious few who do, there is a lot of adoration and money involved.
But those two ingredients seem to make a couple of folks forget how lucky they are to be living the dream and instead do the unthinkable...
Some hold out from practice, others threaten to go play baseball, and there are some who skip their entire rookie seasons to head back into the draft.
This is a list of the guys who took it just a little to far when fighting with management over the Benjamins, and made our collective stomachs churn in disgust.
At least temporarily.
The worst part for some fans is wondering what could have been if these guys simply would have shown up and played.
