Former Dallas Cowboys kicker Rafael Septien, who was released by the National Football League team after he pleaded guilty to a charge of indecency with a child, wants to make a comeback but says no one is interested in his services.
Septien told the Dallas Times Herald he has asked for tryouts with the Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins and Phoenix Cardinals only to be told the teams are not interested.Septien, who was paid $200,000 for his last season with the Cowboys, says he would be willing to take $100,000 if the team would sign him for this season. He had been the team's kicker for 10 years.
The team is not interested in signing Septien, Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry said Thursday.
"I don't think it's fair to bring it up right now," Landry said. "I think he has been through enough pain."
Septien was charged with aggravated sexual assault, but pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of indecency with a child and was given 10 years probation and fined $2,000.
