Ralph Orta went undrafted after playing defensive tackle during his college career at Maryland and did not attend a training camp in 1992. In 1993, he was signed in the offseason by the Washington Redskins after Orta sent the 28 NFL teams tape of his college highlights. Orta played in the preseason before he was released.
In 1995, Orta played with the Miami Hooters of the Arena Football League where he wore this Wilson size XXL micromesh jersey. He was credited with four tackles, two quarterback sacks, one pass blocked and a fumble recovery. All numbers, stripes and letters are screened on with the Arena Football logo patch sewn to the right shoulder. It has spandex side panels. The jersey shows good use with plenty of hit marks across the shoulder areas along with a few small holes from contact.
