Former NFL linebacker Bart Scott gave a presentation at the UFC Athlete Summit in Las Vegas, NV earlier this year. He also showed his enthusiasm for “Sin City” to get their very own professional football team, and is excited of how soon this could happen. Scott also commented that he believes Las Vegas getting a NFL team could also dramatically improve the city’s economy as it would become a central hub for athletes too, instead of just gamblers and show-goers.
The Detroit, Michigan native grew up in the city and started playing football during his high school at Southeastern High. He ended up attending Southern Illinois University where he was a linebacker and safety for the team for the entire duration of his college years. In 2002 he entered the NFL Draft but went un-selected, however he managed to get a contract with the Baltimore Ravens due to being evaluated by a scout. Scott played for the Ravens for six years, and in 2009 he finished off his last year NFL years of his career with the New York Jets.
The retired pro recently spoke at an event in Las Vegas where he showed his support and excitement for the city getting its own NFL team. There are talks of Oakland making the switch, but an entirely new roster could form eventually too.
