All-Legal System NFL Team

Posted by Jeff Lipshaw

It would be so easy to start and finish with captains Lawyer Milloy (S, Atlanta) and Ty Law (CB, NY Jets), but there is in fact an entire all-legal system (civil, family, labor, and criminal justice) team out there, and I'm not including some of the real stretches (well, maybe some, which is what accounts for Brooks Bollinger):

Kellen Clemens - QB, NY Jets
Brooks Bollinger - QB, Dallas
Lorenzo Booker - RB, Philadelphia
Travis Minor - RB, St. Louis
Derrick Ward - RB, NY Giants
Brandon Marshall - WR, Denver
Chris Chambers - WR, San Diego
Derek Fine - TE, Buffalo
Bubba Franks - TE, NY Jets
Steve Justice - C, Indianapolis
Kirk Chambers - G, Buffalo
Derrick Dockery - G, Buffalo
Winston Justice - T, Philadelphia
Donald Penn - T, Tampa Bay
Jon Runyan - T, Philadelphia
Quentin Groves - DE, Jacksonville
Tim Bulman - DT, Houston
Darnell Dockett - DT, Arizona
Ryan Pickett - DT, Green Bay
Lance Briggs - LB, Chicago
Tyjuan Hagler - LB, Indianapolis
Jon Corto - S, Buffalo
Lawyer Milloy - S, Atlanta
Darren Sharper - S, Minnesota
Ty Law - CB, NY Jets
Chris Kluwe - P, Minnesota

I think this was something that had to be said.

A couple of New Orleans Saints you missed:

Roman Harper, S (for the civil-law folks)
Will Smith, DE

In retrospect, I should have included Reggie Wayne as well, but you'd have to pronounce it with a hard G.

Ray is right. Saints always get ignored. If we can count mispronounced names, does Brett Favor count? Is he still even active? Would Steve Jung look into my soul?

Off point, I summer-associated in San Diego and was in a law firms league basketball game where one team (the tourney winner) had summer associate Bill Walton. Great outlet pass for a summer associate, but relatively small feet.
