New York Giants defensive lineman Jimmy Kennedy is a former first round bust that has hopped around the league through the years. Originally the #12 overall selection out of Penn State in 2003 by the St. Louis Rams, he was traded for just a 6th round selection to the Denver Broncos in 2007. Lasting just a few months there he signed with the Chicago Bears where he played the final three games of the 2007 season, leaving in free agency to the Jacksonville Jaguars because the Bears opted not to match their offer. He played on the Minnesota Vikings from 2008-2011 following being waived by the Jaguars and then signed with the Giants this offseason.
Hoping to possibly regain some of his talent lost due to jet lag throughout his career, he has been suspended by the NFL four games for violating their policy on performance enhancing drugs.
Shortly after signing with the Giants, Kennedy boldly claimed: "You ask me who the best defensive tackle is in the NFL, I'll tell you Jimmy Kennedy, Whether y'all believe it or whether I believe it in my head, that's all it takes." That all despite 8 1/2 career sacks in 91 games.
Looks like he might have had a little help becoming "the best defensive tackle in the NFL."
