Cedric Cobbs is still searching for his place in the professional sports world.
The former Arkansas Razorback running back star of the early 2000s, who spent a short time in NFL as New England Patriots draft pick and as a Denver Broncos free-agent signee, tried a comeback of sorts in football a few summers back when he had a brief stint with the indoor football Arkansas Twisters.
