We have all heard the story that Carl Crawford turned down an offer to play quarterback for Nebraska when he was drafted by the Rays in 1999. But until now, we had never seen a picture of CC on the gridiron. This image comes via Lost Letterman who lists the top 10 football players currently playing baseball. Crawford is ninth (thanks Amanda)…

    Inside the Rays did a CC special one time I think and they had some good footage of him scrambling for a TD back in his high school days. Funny thing, you could tell it was Carl by the way he runs. Great athlete. He'll be truly missed if he decides to leave.
