Notre Dame wide receiver Jeff Samardzija has decided to forego a pro football career for that of a baseball pitcher -- and he'll be well compensated for it.

Samardzija signed a five-year deal Friday to play baseball full-time, starting in the Chicago Cubs' minor league system.

Did Jeff Samardzija make the right choice in signing with the Cubs?
   Yes
   No

ESPN.com's Wayne Drehs reports the deal is worth $8 million, guaranteed. A news conference was scheduled for Friday afternoon.

When the Cubs drafted Samardzija in the fifth round last June, giving him a $250,000 signing bonus, he intended to play both football and baseball professionally.

Last season, Samardzija pitched for Class A Boise and Peoria, where he finished a combined 1-2 with a 2.70 earned run average. He struck out 17 and walked 12 in 30 innings.

He is expected to start the season in Class A Peoria, where Cubs Hall of Famer Ryne Sandberg will be the manager.

ESPN.com senior writer Wayne Drehs contributed to this story.

Even though he's an ND pussy, the kid is a helluva ball player. 

I think his *impact* as an athlete would be greater in football, but there's no question that he can earn a lot more money in baseball. 

That being said, I wish him all the best in his chosen pro career.   

Kids today, I say...

No professional sport chews up more bodies than Pro Football. That being said, I say it's a smart move. Hell, if the kid's any good, he'll have a nice healthy and rich 15 year career.


Doesn't sound like a bad choice in my book.
