He was a free agent in '83 or '84 (he was a rookie free agent the year John Elway was a rookie--when was that?) but left the team or didn't make the team.

Shamus was a player for Iowa State University while I attended. He was drafted (or invited for a tryout - I don't remember which)and given a signing bonus of $70,000. A big deal was made in the local papers. I believe he never made it out of training camp.
