Johnny On The Spot

SOCHI, Russia --Perhaps you've heard the story of the U.S. bobsledder who smashed his way through a door after being locked in his bathroom. 

Well, as so often happens there's a Buffalo angle. Johnny Quinn, the man who made the great bathroom escape, used to be with the Bills. News reports are saying Quinn played for the Bills. Actually, he was with the team in the 2007 training camp as an undrafted free agent wideout from North Texas, but never played a regular-season game with the team.

Quinn was a star receiver and kick returner at North Texas. He finished as the school's all-time leader in catches, receiving yards and touchdowns. In 2008, he signed with the Packers, but didn't make their regular squad, either. Quinn eventually caught on with the Saskatechewan Roughriders and had a few productive games in the Canadian Football League in 2009 before suffering an ACL injury.

In 2010, Quinn put together a training video and sent it to the USA national bobsled team. He competed in a bobsled for the first time in the 2010-2011 season. He is a member of the Americans' second four-man sled with driver Nick Cunningham.
