ESPN's Todd Archer has written a fantastic article on Dwayne Goodrich, the former Dallas Cowboys defensive back, who was recently released from prison after serving six and a half years for negligent homicide and failing to render aid.
Following is an excerpt from Archer's article and a video-taped interview with Dwayne Goodrich:
When Goodrich was selected by the Cowboys in the second round of the 2000 NFL draft, he had immediate visions of winning Super Bowls, going to Pro Bowls and living the life he always dreamed of having while growing up outside Chicago.
That never happened.
Instead, the cornerback became an example of all that was wrong with the Cowboys of the early 2000s on and off the field.
