QB turns grayshirt into NFL internship: Paul Suhey signed with Penn State this spring but won't be in State College this fall. Instead, as a "grayshirt," he'll be in Detroit, where former Nittany Lion Matt Millen got him an internship with the Lions. "So, while other players around the country in the same situation live at home and work out on their own or go to school part time and pay their own way, Kevin Suhey will be an intern with the Lions, working in the equipment department. When he's not working, he will be throwing passes to professional receivers before practice, sitting in on quarterbacks meetings and working out in an NFL weight room."

Sorry, that's Kevin Suhey. Paul's the dad (and a former PSU player).

That's a pretty sweet deal for him. It'll be interesting to see how it helps him during his college career. An internship like that gives him an opportunity to excel. Has this been done before?
