Eric Palmer Kumerow (born April 17, 1965) is a former American football linebacker who played three seasons for the Miami Dolphins and one season with the Chicago Bears in the National Football League. Despite being a first round draft pick (16th overall), his brief NFL career has been widely criticized as a disappointment. He retired after only three seasons without ever starting an NFL game, and registering only five quarterback sacks. He is the grandson of Chicago Outfit mob boss Tony Accardo, the brother-in-law of former Miami Dolphins first-round pick John Bosa, and the uncle of Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa. He now resides in the Chicago suburb of Bartlett, Illinois.[citation needed]
