Outlaws Trade For C David Diaz-Infante
Former Denver Broncos OL Becomes Second Outlaw with Two Super Bowl Rings
January 8, 2001

With less than one week remaining before Sunday’s cutdown deadline to 62 players, the Las Vegas Outlaws acquired veteran offensive lineman David Diaz-Infante from the San Francisco Demons in exchange for T Harvey Goins. Diaz-Infante earned Super Bowl rings with the Denver Broncos in both 1997 and 1998, enabling him to join Outlaws LB Kurt Gouveia as two-time winners of NFL titles.

“I’ve known David since he played for the Frankfurt Galaxy in 1991,” said Outlaws Head Coach Jim Criner, who also oversees the team’s offensive line. “Diaz-Infante is a very experienced center, which is important in two ways for our development: 1) his experience and quickness enable him to compete with Lamont Burns for the starting center job, which 2) takes some pressure off our other versatile O-linemen, Pat Kesi and Mark Nori, so that they can focus on the guard positions and compete with Isaac Davis. This way, we have maximum focus and learning ability for our inside three offensive line positions.”

The trade marked the second exchange in team history, after the Outlaws sent territorial selection Mike Croel to Los Angeles on draft day (10/28/00) for LB Joseph Tuipala.
