Hall of Fame RB Larry Csonka - burst 5
We weren't that good yet. All right. Larry I gotta ask you one more thing happened in one thousand nine hundred seventy four in March nineteen seventy-four. You were the second overall selection in the world football league draft by the Memphis South men and most people who listen to this have no idea what the world football league is and and I'll just tell him that basically there's been a bunch of other football leagues through the years and that was the first one after the AFL NFL merger that came in to try to be a a legitimate second league and so you were drafted second. You've got a big contract offer from the Memphis. South men an tell me what happened at that time between you and Don Shula when you said. Hey I'm thinking of going and playing in this league.
