From 2010 to 2013, Wood played college football for Notre Dame and soon caught the attention of NFL scouting agents.
He scored 16 touchdowns over the course of three seasons.
However, the athlete's next career in the NFL was limited and he spent most of his time in practice squares.
Wood started as a free agent at Houston Texas in January 2013.
The New England Patriots signed him to their training team in November of that year, but he was released after less than two months.
