Verlon Marion Biggs (March 16, 1943 – June 7, 1994) was an American football defensive end in the American Football League and National Football League. He played for the New York Jets (AFL) in Super Bowl III, but felt he didn't receive enough credit for the Jets' playoff win against the Oakland Raiders in the AFL Championship Game that launched them into the Super Bowl. He sulked until 1970, demanded more money, and wound up with the Washington Redskins of the NFL. He solidified George Allen's defense and led the Redskins into Super Bowl VII.
