Mac Cody turned pro after his junior year at Memphis and began his career with the Ottawa Rough Riders of the CFL in 1994 where he was used mainly as a return specialist. He moved to the expansion Birmingham Barracudas in 1995 and wore this jersey for home games while catching 31 passes for 452 yards. Like the Mad Dogs jerseys, the Barracudas shirts were very long and this one has been shortened. Cody joined the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in 1996 and enjoyed his finest season as a professional with 80 receptions for 1,426 yards and 11 touchdowns to earn the team's Most Outstanding Player award. Cody jumped to the Arena football league in 1997 by inking a deal with the Orlando Predators in mid-season as part of a commitment by new owner, Will Meris, to bring an Arena Bowl title to the city. Cody caught 16 passes for the Predators and was back in the CFL in 1998 with the Montreal Alouettes where he caught 33 passes for 479 yards and 5 scores. In 1999, Cody made the National Football League's Arizona Cardinals roster as primarily a punt returner. Cody spent two seasons with the Cardinals and caught 23 passes during that time in addition to returning punts. He would return to the CFL in 2002 for one final game with the Toronto Argonauts where he returned kicks. In his CFL career, Cody made 145 receptions for 2,366 yards and 19 majors.
