Well, if you can't make it, fake it right?!
Former Buffalo Bill's first-round pick JP Losman is taking an internship with Clemson HC Dabo Swinney in an attempt to revive his career on the sidelines....Again.
Thankfully Swinney is one of the best guys around and is willing to give the failed first-round pick a second chance at life.

In a draft class headlined by Eli Manning, Philip Rivers, and Ben Roethlisberger, Losman was a sore thumb in a field of perfectly capable thumbs.
Losman's career got off to a shaky start after breaking his leg in training camp. How did he break his leg? Teammate Troy Vincent ran into him. If that doesn't spell destiny, I don't know what does.
The former UCLA and Tulane product struggled with consistency and confidence throughout his career. He would emerge as the hero in one game and then lose several in a row.
Although his career was a failure, his attempt at redemption is valiant and I can't help but root for him.
Good luck JP!
