Gerald Sensabaugh takes up bass fishing

By Calvin Watkins

Former Dallas Cowboys safety Gerald Sensabaugh has taken up bass fishing in retirement.

Sensabaugh, who played four seasons for the Cowboys is profiled by bassmaster.com. During his time with the Cowboys, Sensabaugh would talk about many non-football subjects and his love for fishing was one of them.

Sensabaugh would park his fishing boat in the players parking lot at the Cowboys facility.

"Oh yeah, I’d take it to work and then go out fishing after practice," Sensabaugh said to bassmasters.com.

The story says Sensabaugh would fish at the Sam Rayburn Reservoir and various other lakes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Several former Cowboys' players have retired in recent years, two weeks ago linebacker Bradie James announced he was done playing. Former tackle Marc Colombo is working in the Cowboys personnel department.

Former offensive lineman Montre Holland runs a camp for offensive linemen, linebacker Dat Nguyen is a co-host of a popular radio show in San Antonio and quarterback Jon Kitna is a high school teacher in Seattle.

A NFL life is short, maybe four to five years, and figuring out what to do when you're in the mid-to-late 30s is an interesting choice.

It seems there are plenty of success stories and Sensabaugh's is one of them.
