Cincinnati Bengals safety Chinedum Ndukwe, drafted in the seventh round of the 2007 NFL Draft, is set to become a free agent in 2011 when the new league year begins on March 4. That's the date known to many as the date the owners will lock out the players indefinitely until the two sides come to a resolution on the Collective Bargaining Agreement.
In other words, that's going to be the date that your girlfriend is planning on breaking up with you. It could be sooner now that the cameras caught your girlfriend hand-feeding you popcorn during the Super Bowl, the most watched television event in the country.
Ndukwe is well known for being a hard hitter off the field, but he's also one of the more, if not most, community minded Bengals players.
On Thursday, February 10, Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory will declare it Chinedum Ndukwe Day, presenting the Bengals safety with the City of Cincinnati Proclamation for his impact for the young of Cincinnati through the Ndukwe foundation.
Ndukwe played 12 games in 2010, leading the secondary with 58 tackles, which also ranked fifth on the team. Nduwkwe also recorded a shared sack, an interception, fumble recovery and three passes defenses. Ndukwe also posted five tackles on special teams before his season ended with a major knee injury against the Super Bowl looooooooosers, the Pittsburgh Steelers. We kid because we care.
