A former football standout at Fenwick was briefly a member of the 2004-05 Super Bowl XXXIX champion New England Patriots.
Marques Sullivan, who graduated from Fenwick in 1995, was cut from the Patriots on Dec. 20 to make room for defensive back Omare Lowe and linebacker Eric Alexander, over a month shy of being a member of Sunday's Super Bowl champions.
Sullivan, 26, was in his fourth NFL season and had played in 32 career games with 22 starts. The 6-foot-5-inch, 325-pound lineman was originally drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the fifth round (144th overall) of the 2001 NFL Draft.
Sullivan, who played for the University of Illinois, spent three seasons with the Bills from 2001 to 2003. In 2002, he started all 16 games for the Bills at right guard. Last season, Sullivan played in six games with four starts at left tackle. He was also briefly a member of the New York Giants this season. He was waived by New York on Nov. 30.
