Sean Considine is an avid deer hunter, duck hunter and angler from Illinois who recently retired from an eight-year NFL career. The 32-year-old ended his career on the highest note an NFL player can ask for. In 2013 his team, the Baltimore Ravens, beat the 49ers in the Super Bowl.
During Super Bowl XLVII, you might have seen the Ravens’ special team player make an excellent block that allowed teammate Jacoby Jones to run for a 108-yard touchdown kickoff reception. In one of the best Super Bowls in years, the underdog Ravens beat Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers 34-31.
Considine retired soon after and didn’t suit up for the 2014 season.
Where is he now?
Considine now lives in his hometown of Dixon, Ill. with a team he’ll be getting reacquainted with: his wife and five children, three of whom are triplets, age 2. The oldest is five, and the youngest is just a year old. You’ll also find him in the deer stand, duck blind or bass boat when he otherwise would have been on the gridiron.
“Duck hunting actually reminds me a lot of sitting in the locker room in the NFL days when we’d joke around, hang out and enjoy each other’s company,” said Considine.
John Geiger, Gear Editor for Game & Fish/Sportsman magazines, recently shot greenheads on a frozen South Platte River reservoir with Considine and his long-time friend and fellow Iowa Hawkeye alum, Tim Anderson of Mossy Oak. Geiger interviewed Considine in the blind and at camp for this report.
