Former Auburn Tigers running back Michael Dyer was once a promising young ball carrier that was part of a national championship winning team, but after a string of off field incidents his college football career was uncertain.
Dyer was initially booted from Auburn after using synthetic marijuana. He has said recently that he has since stopped using the synthetic drug, and he no longer owns his registered gun, which was used during a 2011 robbery. He seems to be taking a step in the right direction.
He also looks like he could be getting a shot.
After looking to return to a FBS program, rumors are surfacing that Dyer could be joining the Louisville Cardinals for the coming season.
From T.J. Walker of Rivals.com:
Rumblings of Michael Dyer to Louisville. If true, drama aside, he’s a stud.

If a talent like Dyer could join the Louisville backfield to compliment Teddy Bridgewater, the Cardinals could be one their way to taking advantage of a weak schedule and becoming a serious threat to be a player in the national championship race.
We should learn more about Dyer’s future in the coming weeks.
