Five fictional players that could help the Las Vegas Raiders
Luther “Shark” Lavay, LB: Any Given Sunday
What do you get when you build a hard-hitting, hard-partying, irrational linebacker and provide him with a million dollar incentive for reaching his tackle quota? You get Lawrence Taylor on another level, which is hard to accomplish.
Shark Lavay, who was the mainstay of the Miami Sharks is a hot tempered, tackling machine who revolutionized the linebacker position. LaVay is more concerned with securing his bonus than he is with self preservation, a player who will literally put his life on the line on every down.
LaVay is the prototypical Raider of the 1970’s and 1980’s. Adding a player like Shark brings the veteran presence in the locker room that may leave a bad example, but will hold everyone all the way up to the quarterback accountable, even if it means cutting his vehicle in half.
