    Nicknamed 'The Mad Stork' or simply 'The Stork'
    He was a heavy partier during his playing days.
    After turning in one of the best years of his career, the Packers released him after only one year of play.
    Raiders coaches almost released him twice with only Al Davis vetoes saving his career.
    What kind of nickname is'The Mad Stork?'
    He established a little known award for a college football player showing leadership potential and modestly named it after himself.
    He didn't start lifting weights until late in his career and only because he said he didn't want to look so bad when he went to the beach.
    He is without question one of the greatest linebackers in the history of the NFL.
    His presence on a defense improved it's play far, far beyond his individual physical contribution.
    He is believed to be the only NFL player (as of 2011) to have at least 25 kicks; field goals/PATS/punts blocked and at least 25 pass interceptions.
    He used his height, long arms, and jumping ability to disrupt opposing quarterbacks passing to a degree unequaled in NFL history.
    In addition to his physical skills, he played a very intelligent and highly developed instinctual game to great effect.
    He is in three Hall of Fames; Florida high school, College, and NFL.
    Despite his reputation as a partier; he kept himself out of legal trouble, stayed in shape, and conducted himself as a professional on the field.
