 WASHINGTON (AP) - There are plenty of stories about NFL players going back to school to finish a degree or start a new one. Few of them go about it quite like this.
More than 40 current and former players are cramming to the extreme, attempting to earn a full MBA from George Washington University by taking a series of two-week courses over two offseasons.
The group includes Shawne Merriman, Will Witherspoon, Marques Colston, Antwaan Randle El, Samari Rolle, Stephen Bowen and Derrick Dockery.
Dockery is taking the courses with his wife, Emma. He says he wants to ``break down those stereotypes'' about athletes who aren't prepared for life after football.
Graduation day is May 17.
