Mike Tyson “The Football Player, Not The Boxer”
The Seattle Seahawks selected defensive back Mike Tyson. You might think that he was named after the legendary boxer who also went by the name of Mike Tyson. But the new seahawk was actually named Mike Tyson because it is a third-generation name. The football player also has a 3 year old son named Mike as well.
The new NFL DB played at Cincinatti and grew up in Norfolk, Virginia. Last season he had 5 interseptions and 29 solo tackles for the Bearcats. He also had 4.5 tackled for loss.
The football player has no relation to the boxer but will try to make his own legacy and not just live in the name.
