1) Having played in the NFL during the 1980s, 1990s and the 2000s means that: “I was fortunate enough to stay healthy and to have the opportunity to play for that many years; a total of 25 years in professional football (counting the first three seasons of the USFL), when it was all said and done.”

2) Being a key member of a Super Bowl-winning team with the New York Giants twice means that: “I was very lucky to be on teams with terrific players that were able to get to, and win, the big game both times. And, it also has most certainly helped me out in my post-football career endeavors.”

3) Of all of the NFL cities and stadiums that I have ever played in, I’d have to say the toughest and most brutal fans were: “Almost any place where you were beating the home team, the fans were not very happy about it. I really can’t pick just one.”

4) A most memorable celebrity encounter that happened as a result of my life in the NFL was: “Meeting the president of the United States – THREE presidents of the United States: President Reagan, President Clinton AND President [W.] Bush.”

5) Of all of the memories I have from my football career, the one that comes to mind most often is: “The moment that I first made it to professional football; the moment that my longtime dream had finally come true. Also, I am constantly reminded of all of the great people I was able to meet, and all of the amazing places I was able to visit as a result of my career in football.”

6) Playing on those legendary NY Giants teams with such enormous personalities as Lawrence Taylor, Phil Simms and Coach Bill Parcells meant that: “There was never a dull moment!”

During a remarkable playing career in which he was a member of the New York Giants, the Los Angeles Rams, the St. Louis Rams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles, Sean Landeta was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team for both the 1980s and the 1990s. A part-time resident of Palm Beach County, Landeta makes numerous appearances on behalf of several of his former teams and continues to work as a broadcaster in radio and television during the NFL season in Philadelphia and New York.
