Ken Times bounced around during his football career. He suited up for 3 games in 1980 for the San Francisco 49ers and also a single game for the CFL’s Winnipeg Blue Bombers that same year. In 1981, he did not make the Denver Broncos roster out of training camp but signed later in the year with the St. Louis Cardinals and played in 2 games before being a camp cut in 1982. In 1983, he signed with the Washington Federals of the USFL but was dealt to the Tampa Bay Bandits for a future draft pick and played 12 games as a part of “Bandit Ball”. The Bandits traded Times to Memphis in 1984 for center Lee North and he played 4 games for the Showboats before being placed on waivers. Chicago claimed Times and he ended the season with the Blitz. Times was selected by the Orlando Renegades in the dispersal draft of Blitz players. The Renegades traded Times back to the Tampa Bay Bandits during the 1985 season. He recorded 11 sacks in 1983, another 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 home Renegades jersey.
Times wore this Champion XL porthole mesh jersey for road games with the Showboats in 1984. It has the correct tagging. The jersey exhibits lighter, but appropriate, wear considering Times played just 4 games for Memphis. It does feature one team repair on the left sleeve.
