Career[edit] College career[edit] Blake finished sixth in the 1991 Heisman Trophy voting, while leading East Carolina to an 11–1 record and the #9 ranking at season's end. He was inducted into the East Carolina Hall of Fame in 2007.

1990: 116/219 for 1,510 yards with 13 TD vs. 10 INT. 118 carries for 414 yards with 4 TD.[1] 1991: 203/368 for 3,073 yards with 28 TD vs. 8 INT. 77 carries for 109 yards with 3 TD.

Professional career[edit] Blake's best seasons came with Cincinnati in the mid-to-late 1990s (when he was often referred to as "Shake-N-Blake" by local media and fans); he established great rapport with Bengal receivers Carl Pickens and Darnay Scott, helping the former vie for the receiving title in 1995. Blake left the Bengals after the 1999 season. He signed with the New Orleans Saints as a free agent. Blake started 11 games at quarterback before breaking his foot late in the 2000 season and being replaced by Aaron Brooks. Blake left the Saints after the 2001 season. He started 11 games for the Ravens in 2002 and 13 games for the Cardinals in 2003, but neither team expressed interest in signing him to a long-term contract. Blake was signed by the Chicago Bears

before the 2005 NFL season

to replace back-up quarterback Chad Hutchinson. Following an injury to the Bears' starting quarterback, Rex Grossman, coach Lovie Smith

opted to select rookie Kyle Orton

to fill the slot. During the last game of the regular NFL season, Blake was put in to replace Kyle Orton

during the fourth quarter, completing eight of nine passes. Despite stating that he wished to continue playing for the Bears and work with Grossman,[2] the Bears did not express any interest in re-signing Blake. His contract with the team expired before the start of the 2006 NFL season. His position was filled by Kyle Orton, who was demoted after the Bears signed Brian Griese

to serve as Grossman's back-up. At the conclusion of his fourteen-year career, Blake amassed 21,711 passing yards, with 134 touchdown passes, and 99 interceptions. A mobile quarterback, Blake ran for 2,027 career rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. He made 100 career starts. Personal life[edit] Blake is divorced with four children - 2 boys and 2 girls. His oldest son Emory was a receiver for the St. Louis Rams

and a former Auburn wideout who played a major role in Auburn's 2010 BCS National Championship season. Blake is the brother-in-law of former Dallas Cowboys' linebacker Robert Jones. Blake is also the uncle of Buffalo Bills' wide receiver Zay Jones, whom the Bills traded up for and selected 37th overall, in the 2nd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. References[edit]
