For rookies, Father's Day is in September

They will definitely get him something for Father's Day on June 19. Maybe a snazzy new tie or a colorful golf shirt.

They will definitely get him something for Father's Day on June 19. Maybe a snazzy new tie or a colorful golf shirt.

But the real Father's Day present from nine NFL rookies will be unwrapped from September 8-12 -- on NFL Kickoff 2005 Weekend. At that time, if all goes well, they will give dad a gift 140 sons have presented before -- following in his footsteps as NFL players.

The fathers can't wait.

"I can't tell you how proud I am of Braylon, because he's worked so hard to get to this point in his life," says Stan Edwards, the former Houston Oilers (1982-86) and Detroit Lions (1987) running back whose son Braylon was selected with the third overall pick in the 2005 NFL Draft by the Cleveland Browns.

Braylon Edwards became the first receiver in Big Ten history to record three 1,000-yard seasons while leading the Michigan Wolverines to back-to-back conference championships and Rose Bowl appearances in 2003 and 2004. He is one of only five Michigan receivers in school history to wear the coveted No. 1.

Growing up in his father's hometown of Detroit, following him to Michigan, and now embarking on his first NFL season, Braylon has been retracing his father's footsteps for as long as he can remember.

"My father was my role model," says the rookie. "He definitely played a big role in helping me get to where I am today."

Stan Edwards instilled many values in his son along the way, but a few in particular stand out in Braylon's mind.

"He taught me the right things to do, and as a result, through hard work and perseverance, I'm where I am today because of myself, my family, and most importantly, my father."

Tampa Bay Buccaneers second-round selection Barrett Ruud not only followed his father Tom's lead when selecting a position (linebacker) and college (Nebraska), but he now will be learning from the same coach his dad had more than 30 years ago at Nebraska -- Buccaneers defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.

"In my opinion, Monte Kiffin is one of the best football coaches alive," says Tom, who played for Buffalo (1975-77) and Cincinnati (1978-79) in the NFL. "I've got the utmost respect for him. Monte's a real special guy. The Bucs have a lot of pride and it starts at the top. Barrett's in a good situation there."

Ruud and tight end Alex Smith -- Tampa Bay's third-round draft choice from Stanford whose father Ed was a defensive end for Denver in 1973-74 -- become the fourth and fifth second-generation NFL players on the Bucs' roster, joining Brian Griese (Bob), Ryan Nece (Ronnie Lott) and Chris Simms (Phil).

In Seattle, new Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu, the team's second-round choice out of USC, has already given his dad a present, and wouldn't mind duplicating it in the NFL.

After the Trojans won a share of the national championship in 2003, Lofa gave his championship ring to his father Mosi, a former Southern Cal fullback who played 14 years in the NFL (New England, 1978-90; L.A. Rams, 1991) and is now an assistant coach at Curry College.

"Lofa has a wonderful appreciation for his father's legacy," says his mother Linnea. "All these years, it's been 'This is Mosi's son, Lofa.' Now the script is flipping and it's 'That's Lofa's dad, Mosi.' His father was not only a good football player but is a great man, kind and considerate."

The other rookies this year who can join the NFL fathers-sons list are Dallas running back Marion Barber III, son of former New York Jets running back Marion, Jr.; Kansas City punter Dustin Colquitt, son of former Pittsburgh punter Craig; Miami linebacker Channing Crowder, son of former Miami and Tampa Bay defensive tackle Randy; Pittsburgh fullback Zach Tuiasosopo, son of former Seattle and San Francisco defensive lineman Manu; and Detroit cornerback Stanley Wilson, son of former Cincinnati running back Stanley.

There have been 140 father-son pairs and threesomes that have played in the NFL. The list includes names such as Dorsett (Tony and Anthony); Farr (Mel, Sr.; Mel, Jr.; and Mike); Jones (Dub and Bert); Kiick (George and Jim); Kramer (Jerry and Jordan); Klecko (Joe and Dan); Manning (Archie, Peyton and Eli); Matthews (Clay, Sr.; Clay, Jr.; and Bruce); Metcalf (Terry and Eric); and Shula (Don, Dave and Mike).
