Steve Wright is an interesting unofficial spokesman for the current state of professional football, also known as weekend mayhem.

Wright is 56. He lives in Manhattan Beach. He played 13 years on various pro teams, including the last seven with the Raiders. He played at 6 feet 7 and 270 pounds, about 20 pounds heavier than he is today.

Recent medical studies of football concussions indicate that linemen suffer the majority of them. By the necessity of the game, they are banging heads on every play.
