Not the same guy. The football player is 45 which means he was born in 1967, not 1956.

No problem, lol.

Reading the article, looks like he played from 199-1997. The first crime charged was 1999. I’m guessing his contract wasn’t renewed, he got used to living high and on drugs etc. and robbed these guys then killed them so there wouldn’t be witnesses.

From this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthony_Smith_%28defensive_end%29

Anthony Wayne Smith (born June 28, 1967 in Elizabeth City, North Carolina) is a former American football defensive end in the National Football League. He was drafted by the Raiders 11th overall in the 1990 NFL Draft. He played college football at Arizona and Alabama.

On March 4, 2011, Smith was charged with murder along with two others in the 2008 death of a Southern California man.

He was previously married to former pop star Vanity.

But under the “OJ test,” if he meets the standard for fame, he is or was a football player, he’s black, and he’s tried in a California court, he has absolute immunity to a charge of homicide.

And once again, a killer with the middle name of Wayne.

He wouldn’t have been arrested, but he was wearing a hoodie.

Thanks ConservativeStatement.

A while back, someone created a list of murderers with the middle name Wayne. Since that’s my brother’s middle name, I used to kid him about it.
