Zach Zenner Next Move!



After a successful stint as an undrafted free agent, which included four seasons with the Lions and brief stints with the Cardinals, Dolphins, and Saints in 2019, Zach Zenner stepped away from playing professional football in 2019. However, he returned to the football scene in a different capacity. The last time he was in the spotlight, Zenner was released just before the final preseason game of 2019, toward the end of the Matt Patricia-Bob Quinn era. Coming back from a back injury in 2018, he couldn’t secure a spot on the team’s roster due to stiff competition among reserve running backs.

In a recent Q&A session with Matt Zimmer from Sioux Falls Live, Zenner, a former standout running back at South Dakota State University, shared insights into his current endeavors as a professional agent. While playing for the Lions, Zenner had explored interests in science and health, aligning with his Biology studies at SDSU. However, instead of pursuing a full-fledged medical career, he shifted his focus to sports nutrition. His decision was influenced by family considerations, particularly his desire to be present for his children’s upbringing.

Presently, Zenner operates a sports nutrition consulting company called Zion Performance, integrating his background in psychology and nutrition to assist athletes in Minnesota. Additionally, he serves as a certified agent with the NFLPA since October 2021 and is a partner at One West Sports Group alongside Chris Gittings, who served as Zenner’s agent during his playing days.

Reflecting on his time with the Lions, Zenner expressed disapproval of fans booing quarterback Matthew Stafford during a playoff game against the Rams. Nonetheless, he celebrated the Lions’ progress and the enthusiasm of the team’s players and fans. Zenner’s transition to a new role in football marks a positive chapter in his life, and his success is warmly received by fans and well-wishers alike.
