Marlin 'The Magician' Briscoe is Happy Pro

Abstract/Description: Five years after Marlin Briscoe moved on from OU, the Gateway did a feature on his early pro career. After a frustrating year with the Denver Broncos, Briscoe signed with the Buffalo Bills, where he played as a wide receiver, though he would have preferred to be a quarterback. After that, he went to the Miami Dolphins, where he played on two Super Bowl championship squads. At the time the article was written, he was temporarily out of service due to an injury. Just days after this article was published, Briscoe would be deactivated by the Dolphins, squelching the optimism he expressed here.
