What could have been? That is the question that so many people ask themselves when they hear news about Colt Brennan. That is probably what you will ask yourself as you read this piece as well. Former University of Hawaii record setting quarterback Colt Brennan is out of a job yet again. The United Football League’s Hartford Colonials folded this week, leaving Brennan and several other former UH players out of a job.
This is just another setback in a long line of setbacks for Brennan. Some were his fault, others were not. If Brennan had left school his junior year, we might all be writing stories of a different tone. However that is not what happened. He stayed for his senior year, got hurt, played poorly in the biggest game of his life, and went from being a possible starter in the NFL, to a “take a chance on him” guy.
There is a bit of good news here, as Colt may not have to wait too long for a job, as the four remaining teams in the UFL will hold an allocation draft on for the Hartford roster. “I would like another opportunity to play in the UFL” Brenna stated.
During his much-maligned NFL career, Brennan suffered injury after injury including surgeries on both knees and both hips. He was also involved in a head on collision on the Big Island that involved his girlfriend Shakti Stream. Brennan seems to be healthy for the first time in a long time, which is why a chance to play in the UFL may have opened up a bigger door for him.
The UFL was suppose to open training camps last month, but they instead went on a 30-day hiatus to enable them to properly secure a television contract.
Where will Colt go next? Well, he is running out of options fast.
