Professional career

Despite a strong showing at Florida State, Dukes went undrafted in 1986. He began his career with the Atlanta Falcons playing for 8 seasons up to the end of 1993. He finished his career in Atlanta playing in 110 games for the Falcons. The following year he signed a 1-year deal with Green Bay and started 6 games for the Packers. In 1995, Dukes signed another 1-year contract, this time with the Arizona Cardinals. He had started 8 games that season. At the end of the year, Dukes retired, completing his career playing in 124 games, and starting 62.[1] He fumbled 6 times in his career 5 recovered by his own team and 1 recovered by the opponent's team for a total of -6 yards[2]

Post-playing career

Dukes joined NFL Network in 2006 as an analyst on NFL Total Access and NFL GameDay Scoreboard alongside Paul Burmeister and Tom Waddle. He is also a regular contributor to NFL.com. During NFL Network’s Thursday Night Football schedule, Dukes, Paul Burmeister and Bucky Brooks can be seen providing complementary coverage on NFL.com/LIVE: Thursday Night Football. He also participated in the NFL Network's coverage of the 2008 NFL Draft as a desk host in New York and helped cover the 2009 Pro-Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii, interviewing players for NFL Total Access.

As of 2010, Dukes spearheaded a grassroots, weight-loss program called the "Billion Pound Blitz Initiative".[3]
