Roundup: McNair had major-league potential

Steve McNair spent 13 years as a quarterback in the NFL, but according to The Seattle Times, he could have just as easily had a prolific baseball career after the Mariners selected him in the 35th round of the 1991 Major League Baseball draft:

    The Mariners offered a $10,000 signing bonus. Despite scout Dan Jennings‘ coaxing of McNair’s mother, grandmother and brother, Fred, McNair decided to accept a scholarship to Alcorn State, where Fred had been the star quarterback.
