Wilber Marshall. He began with the Bears and was a key player in the Buddy Ryan defenses and also
He was signed by the Redskins as a free agent and played well there, as well, though it was reported there was some differences in the schemes that took Marshall some time to adjust to. In 1991 he moved from the right linebacker (Buck in the Richie Petitbon terminology) to the left linebacker (Stub) and had two fabulous seasons. He rejoined Buddy Ryan in 1993 with the Oilers and again in 1994 with the Cardinals as Ryan installed the 46 defense in those two places. He finished with the Jets in 1995.
His honors were as follows: He was a consensus All-Pro in 1986 and then in 1987 he only made the Gannett News Service All-Pro
In 1992 Marshall was again a consensus All-Pro, making the vast majority of teams that were selected.
