For all the talk LaVar Ball does, he has walked a little bit of the walk – if you want to consider that.
The infamous boisterous celebrity father of three including Lakers star Lonzo Ball, did in fact play in the NFL for a brief time after playing just one year of college football.
The Jets signed a 26-year old, 6’5″, 263-pound Ball as a defensive end in 1994, playing tight end with the team the following season.
He played across to pond for the London Monarchs of the World League of American Football, then playing on the Carolina Panthers practice squad in 1996.
Ball can be seen in the Panthers’ team photo, sitting right behind owner Jerry Richardson.
