Dantzler, who appears to be on his way to NFL Europe to practice as a safety, was cut by the Cowboys before the start of the 2003 season.
He was then signed by the Atlanta Falcons where he spent some time as a kick returner and a running back.
He spent the entire 2003 season in Atlanta, but was released after suffering an ankle injury early in the 2004 season.
Dantzler scored a touchdown one of the most electrifying plays of the 2002 season on a 84-yard kickoff return for the Cowboys. After catching the ball on the 16-yard line, he cut to the middle of the field, weaved through traffic, broke a couple of tackles, and danced up the sideline for the score.
"A lot of people come out for the knockout hit," Dantzler said after the score. "I'm one of those guys that you're going to have to wrap me up. If you hit me, I'm just going to bounce off. I don't feel like I can be tackled. You can't just knock me to the ground. I take pride in that."
The former Clemson star was the first quarterback in Division I-A football to rush for 1,000 and pass for 2,000 yards in one season back in 2001.
