Bachelorette Hubby Eyes Football Career
Yet how he made Saint-hood remains a question, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. A spokesman for the team says Sutter's invitation came "from the front office" – and not necessarily, as has been surmised, from Saints assistant coach Greg Brown, who coached at Colorado, where Sutter made a name for himself as an All-Big 12 defensive back.
During Sutter's pro career, the Picayune chronicles (in very sarcastic terms) that he played on the Carolina Panthers developmental squad for several weeks before participating in the opening kickoff of a December 1998 game against the New York Jets. He suffered a dislocated shoulder on the play, went into rehab, then emerged at some point to play a season for the Barcelona (Spain) Dragons.
Still, Sutter, 30, can still claim the distinction of being the only married man to emerge from the ABC's The Bachelor-Bachelorette franchise.
As for his bride, former Miami Heat dancer Rehn, 32, has been announced as a celebrity participant in the ABC summertime reality competition series Dancing with the Stars, scheduled to debut June 1.
Together, the couple made a cable-network special titled Trista and Ryan's Honeymoon Hotspots, which also stars Virgin Air honcho Richard Branson.
