After failing to stick with the Buffalo Bills, former Ohio State backup quarterback Kenny Guiton has found another way to continue his professional football dreams. The AFL League Office announced that the player affectionally known as "Kenny G" to Buckeye fans has signed with the LA KISS.

The LA KISS are an expansion team in the Arena Football League, taking their name from their owners, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley. The KISS play in the Honda Center in Anahiem, sharing the arena with the Ducks of the NHL.

What does Guiton bring to the table, football wise? We broke down his tape in more detail a few weeks ago, but Guiton brings a very high football IQ, and showed strong accuracy and leadership during his apperances with the Buckeyes. In eight games last season, Guiton threw for 14 touchdown passes, against only two interceptions.

We wish Guiton the best of luck in his professional football career. Of all the places his football journey could have taken him, you could do a lot worse than the LA area.
