JR: Was it a similar situation to rookie free agency for the FXFL, or were tryouts involved?
LN: After the ArenaBowl I received a call to join the FXFL (Fall Experimental Football League).
The majority of the league was made up of players who had some sort of NFL experience. There were only a small amount of players who tried out from the league who came from small schools.
JR: What are your plans now? Do they still include football, or do you have other plans or interests not involved with the game?

LN: I still plan to play football this year. I recently had surgery on my ankle so I’ve been recovering, but I’ve been contacted by a few Canadian teams.
It really depends on if I’ll be healthy enough for training camp if I decide to go back up there.
Nzegwu signed on for the next FXFL season.
LN: That’s down the road and my mind could change. I even thought about playing Rugby at one point.
Some coaches that I’ve kept in touch with have asked me to be a graduate assistant, which I’d consider doing sometime, but obviously not right now.
This will most likely be my last year playing but I said the same thing … last year.
