The Associated Press reports former NFL DL Moe Thompson, who played at South Carolina, has sued the university for $300,000, claiming officials thwarted his chances of transferring, and consequently a shot at the NFL, after he was suspended from the team in 2005. Thompson tried playing for Grambling State, but academic problems prevented him from taking the field. He is currently serving five years' probation after he pleaded guilty in October to two counts of attempted first-degree burglary and two counts of petit larceny. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but released from the team in June.

Jacob Jordan, of the Associated Press, reports South Carolina DL Moe Thompson is trying to put his troubled past behind him, which includes burglary charges and an electronic monitoring device he wore on his ankle. Thompson and at least a dozen other South Carolina players were charged with burglary after they removed TVs and a DVD player from the dorm rooms of female students. Thompson thought the dorm rooms belonged to other football players and added, "The whole situation was a prank. It was a learning process. ... It's over, it's in the past. I'm just looking forward to continuing my future." Thompson was sentenced to 20 years which was suspended to five years of probation as well as 150 hours of community service, which he completed. Thompson attempted to play at Grambling State during the 2005 season, but academic issued prevented him from playing. Thompson lifted weights and ran sprints at a sports complex Wednesday, April 5, in an attempt to improve his draft stock.
