And what might his stats have possibly been? When I saw that he was only six sacks short of LT, I was a little surprised. Didn't he have a few more good years left? He was 33 when he died. Stats from earlier article:
- Derrick Thomas (126.5) and Lawrence Taylor (132.5) in the top 11 in all-time career sacks
- Four Hall of Famers (Thomas, Butkus, Taylor and Bednarik)
- Taylor played for 12 years, Thomas 10.
