Big hat tip to JimNasium over at Chiefs Planet for digging this one up.

Is this Victor Riley, former offensive lineman for the Kansas City Chiefs?

A motorist who had just exited the I-10 twin spans near Slidell was injured when a tire smashed into the windshield and roof of his car after coming loose from an oncoming vehicle and bounding across the interstate medial.

Keith Kelly, 61, was taken to North Shore Regional Hospital after he was rescued from his damaged vehicle by members of the 1st Fire Protection District in Slidell. Kelly was alone his his Crown Victoria when the accident occurred.

The hood, windshield and roof of Kelly's car were smashed by the flying tire, crushing the roof down into the passenger seat.

The driver of the vehicle that lost the tire, Victor Riley, 34, of LaPlace, was not injured.

Hmm.

Same age. Check.

Looks a lot like him. Check.

Automobile trouble? Check.

Riley played for the Saints for three years and LaPlace is just 25 miles west of New Orleans.

I for one think it is the Victor Riley of the 1998 NFL draft. Gotta be, right? Let us know what you think in the poll.
