Marvin Dwayne Minnis (born February 6, 1977), nicknamed "Snoop" Minnis, is a former American college and professional football player who was a wide receiver in the National Football League (NFL) and Canadian Football League (CFL) for four seasons. He played college football for Florida State University, and earned All-American honors. He was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the 2001 NFL Draft, and also played professionally for the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.
He attended Florida State University, where he played for coach Bobby Bowden's Florida State Seminoles football team from 1997 to 2000. He led the Seminoles in receptions during his 2000 senior season, received first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) honors, and was recognized as a consensus first-team All-American. He was among the Seminoles' offensive most valuable players, was a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award, and remains tied for the FSU team record for the longest touchdown reception—98 yards against the Clemson Tigers in 2000.
Kansas City Chiefs
Minnis was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the third round of the 2001 NFL Draft. He played 15 games for the Chiefs in 2001 and 2002, totaling 515 receiving yards on 34 receptions, including one touchdown.
Minnis was given the nickname "Snoop" by his mother. "My mom, she said I was always snooping around. Like my son, he's a mess he's into everything," said Minnis. "My momma said I was always into everything, that's why she gave me that name."
