Kyle Turley Speaker Profile
Former New Orleans Saint's Lineman
Kyle Turley Biography
Kyle Turley was born September 24, 1975 in Provo, Utah and is a former American football offensive tackle of the National Football League. He was originally drafted by the New Orleans Saints seventh overall in the 1998 NFL Draft. He played college football at San Diego State.
In addition to the Saints, Turley also played for the ++St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs++ in his career before retiring after the 2007 season. He was an All-Pro selection in 2000.
After rejecting a long-term contract extension with the Saints, Turley was traded to the ++St. Louis Rams++ on March 21, 2003 in exchange for a 2004 2nd round draft choice. The Rams immediately signed Turley to a 5-year contract extension worth $26.5 million ($10 million signing bonus) in addition to the one year remaining on Turley's deal. With Orlando Pace entrenched as the starting left tackle, Turley returned to the right side and started 16 games for St. Louis.
Turley's stormy and controversial career was interrupted in 2004 by injury woes. After recovering from offseason back surgery, Turley reinjured his back (August 2004) in training camp and ended up on the injured reserve list. Both injuries were considered career-threatening.
On Dec. 13, 2004, Turley reportedly had a heated confrontation with Rams head coach Mike Martz. The incident had to be investigated by league security as Martz contended that Turley 'threatened to kill him', a charge that would later be vehemently denied by Turley.
After retiring from football, Turley moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where he set his sights on a music career. As of October, 2009, he was in the process of recording his first music CD, which he described as "power country." The disc will feature a track entitled, "Anger Management," including references to the helmet-throwing incident.
