Lawrence Taylor has every reason to believe the modern NFL is different from his day.
The Hall of Fame linebacker was one of the bigger marketing names in his playing day, and even with the forays into commentating, wrestling, exhibition boxing, and other ventures there are for more opportunities.
“Fun and football can spell disaster if you don’t do it right,” LT explained about his penchant for the night life during his playing days and potential impact of social media.
Taylor believes his star in the modern game would lead to a signing bonus being “Giants and Taylor Stadium” due to the large increase in salaries in the NFL.
Lawrence Taylor didn’t believes the NFL was not as strong as it is today. “Gene Upshaw rest his soul, but he didn’t fight as hard for players as the union does today.”
