Kevin's time with the Cleveland Browns came to an end in the pre-season game against the Lions. On a reception up the
middle he was hit helmet to helmet which caused a concussion and neck injury. He was subsequently placed on injured reserve
by the Browns and has reached an injury settlement with the team. In his NFL career he has played with the Denver Broncos,
Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, Detroit Lions and the 2004 Super Bowl Champion Patriots. Along with his three
Touchdowns, Kasper has recorded over 1,800 yards on 77 Kick-off Returns.

Kasper received his first Superbowl ring after the Patriots victory over the Eagles.
Kevin Joseph Kasper was born on December 23rd, 1977 to Ed and
Lee Kasper in Hinsdale, Illinois. He was the middle child in a family of three boys. Kasper played every sport
imaginable as a child with his two brothers Ed and Mike. He excelled in soccer and basketball during grade school, but
in high school his taste in sports changed. He began pursuing wrestling, football and boxing. He became
intrigued with diet and nutrition during his weight watching days as a wrestler, though he ultimately decided to pursue
football. It was at this time that he began to train religiously, and monitor every morsel that he put in his body,
a habit which he has to this very day.
He joined the University of Iowa football team as a walk-on in 1996, and
slowly moved his way up the depth chart. By his Jr. year he was the starting wide receiver, and Iowa's main offensive
threat. He broke the school record with 13 catches in a game against Ohio State that year. His Sr. year he exploded
onto the scene and left as Iowa's all-time leader in receptions for a game, a season, and a career.
He also was a three time academic All Big Ten Selection and was named MVP of the team.
After setting three all-time NFL combine speed records, Kevin was drafted
by the Denver Broncos in the sixth round (190th pick overall). He was the AFC's leading kickoff returner for much
of the season and started 5 games as a wide receiver.
In his 2nd year he was released by the Broncos, and picked up by first Seattle, and then Arizona, where
he seemed to have found a home after scoring 3 TD's in the last 2 games. He was released a year later by Arizona and picked
up by the World Champion New England Patriots and ended the 2004 season with a Superbowl victory. Since then he has played
for the Texans, Vikings, and Lions. He is now looking for his next opportunity.
