Memphis Showboats

Ken Times - Nose Tackle (Southern)

Ken Times bounced around during his football career.  He suited up for three games in 1980 for the San Francisco 49ers and also one game for the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers that same year.  In 1981, he failed to make the Denver Broncos roster but hooked on for two games with the St. Louis Cardinals before being a camp cut in 1982.  In 1983, he signed with the Washington Federals but was traded to the Tampa Bay Bandits for a future draft pick where he played 12 games as a part of “Bandit Ball”.  The Bandits would trade Times to Memphis in 1984 (for center Lee North) where he wore this road jersey for the Showboats.  He did not stay long, playing only four games for the Showboats before being placed on waivers.  This jersey does feature one team repair on the left sleeve.  Chicago claimed Times on waivers from the Showboats and he would end the season with the Blitz.  Times was selected by the Orlando Renegades in the dispersal draft of Blitz players but would be on the move again later in 1985 as he was traded back to Tampa Bay during the season.  Times recorded 11 sacks in 1983, 6 in 1984 (all for the Blitz), and 1 for the Renegades in 1985.  Check out the Orlando Renegades page to see Ken's 1985 Renegades home jersey.
