It appears Centre More Petrus is putting his pro football career on hold (before it started) to work at a California Entertainment firm.
Hopefully Marwan has a couple years left in the tank.
[b]Drew Edwards The news wasn't as good regarding the Ticats top pick in the 2011 draft, however. Offensive lineman Moe Petrus, who was taken 10th overall by the Ticats two years ago, has decided to put his football career on hold.
A native of St. Laurent, Quebec, Petrus played his college football at the University of Connecticut as a centre and was drafted by the Ticats after his junior year as another so-called futures pick. After his final season with the Huskies, the 6-foot-3, 302 pound Petrus signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers of the NFL but was a late training camp cut.
After failing to catch on with another NFL club, Petrus reportedly went to work with TEI Entertainment, a California-based firm owned by his father-in-law John McEntee. The company provides celebrity entertainment for private and corporate events and works with a number of high profile performers including Rod Stewart, Kelly Clarkson, Elton John and Snopp Dogg.
Petrus was married to Melissa McEntee – the sister of a former college teammate – in March and the two are now living in California.[/b]
