Brian Bosworth Speaker Profile
Former Linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks
Brian Bosworth Biography
Brian Bosworth (also referred to as The Boz) was born March 9, 1965 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and is a former American football player. He was a linebacker for the University of Oklahoma (1984-1986) and the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League (1987-1989).
Prior to his entry into the NFL supplemental draft, Bosworth had sent letters to various NFL teams stating that, if they drafted him, he wouldn't report to their training camp and he wouldn't play for them. As a joke, the Tacoma Stars of the Major Indoor Soccer League selected him in the 12th round in their 1987 draft because, as their general manager jokingly stated, "Because we didn't receive a letter from him that he wouldn't play for us."
Bosworth was drafted by the Seahawks in the 1987 supplemental draft, and signed what was both the biggest contract in team history and the biggest rookie contract in NFL history: 10 years for US$11 million. After being drafted by the Seahawks, Bosworth sued the NFL for the right to wear #44 (the number he wore in college). Bosworth lost the case and was forced to wear #55 in the pros. Despite playing his entire college career on the strong side, he was moved to the Seahawks' weak side. Contrary to popular belief, Bosworth did well during his short time with the Seahawks, leading the team in several defensive categories and making the NFL's All-Rookie Team in 1987.
Although often remembered for his less than stellar professional career (in July 2004 he was named the 6th worst flop on the Biggest Flops of the Last 25 Years list by ESPN), Bosworth is also remembered as a great collegiate player, being named #30 in College Football News' list of the "100 Greatest Players of All-Time." Most recently, Bosworth made an appearance in the booth during the Monday Night Football broadcast that saw the Seattle Seahawks host the Oakland Raiders on November 6, 2006. During the discussion, he stated he had no regrets about his football career, but wished that he and Jackson had had longer careers. He also stated that he thought he and Bo would have developed a good rivalry, had they both been able to play longer.
