Buy NFL Legend Willie Roaf’s California Mansion For $2.4 Million

There’s no debate that Willie Roaf is one of the greatest offensive lineman in NFL history. The big fella played in the league for 13 years and eventually bought an insane mansion in Villa Park, California. He bought the place back in 2008 for a cool $2.15 million and ended up putting it on the market earlier this year for $2.95 million. Looks like there weren’t many nibbles...

Saints Nation: Willie Roaf Enshrined Into Hall of Fame

It's been an amazing weekend for me so far in Canton. I've included some pictures on twitter if you follow my feed to share the experience as much as possible with you.

He was very engaging, asked me...

Roaf's road to HOF paved by 13 years of honors

Willie Roaf might have missed out on a whopping 11 Pro Bowls had he been 2 inches taller. Fortunately for the New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs, Roaf, who loves basketball and says he can still dunk at age 42, stopped growing when he was 6-foot-5.

Hall Of Fame Class Of 2012: Profiling Willie Roaf

Willie Roaf was one of the new breed of offensive linemen: huge enough to open massive holes for running backs to slither through, yet agile and athletic enough to back-peddle against fast-twitch, aggressive defensive ends. And then strong enough to hold ground allowing his quarterback the precious 3-5 seconds needed to release the football.   Big No. 77 was a gentle giant, quiet...
