Former NFL player Brendan Langley achieved the fame that eluded him during his very brief pro football career when he became the star of a viral video of a wild fight with a United Airlines employee at New Jersey’s Newark Airport.
In the action that went down last Thursday, the ex-Denver Broncos defensive back was arrested after he mixed it up with a burly airline worker at the check-in desk. Both men landed blows in the brief altercation although what happened or who started the fight is not clear by the video footage.
“It is believed that the fight began when Langley used a wheelchair to transport his luggage, instead of a paid-for luggage cart which cost $5, ” the Daily Mail reported.
What appeared to be a verbal scuffle escalated rapidly as the two men squared off with Langley being the first one to resort to violence, slapping the man before all hell broke loose.
Flying the friendly skies in #newark New Jersey.
Imagine being an employee of any company and getting into a physical fight over something at work when, ultimately, the company doesn’t care about you at all… Ego is interesting for sure 🤨#united #unitedairlines #fight #crime pic.twitter.com/3V1X6oyfPr

The video starts with the two chirping at each other when Langley suddenly slaps the worker in the face, then swings at him two more times as the United Airlines employee was knocked backward, losing his balance after stumbling into a wheeled suitcase apparently belonging to a masked woman.
After regaining his balance, the worker advanced on the ex-NFL cornerback, also slapping him in the head, prompting Langley to exclaim “You saw that sh*t?” before attacking the worker, sending him flying over the counter where he landed on the floor with a thud.
He again got to his feet and advanced at Langley who hollered “You want more? He wants more,” before another worker intervened.
The incident ended with Langley’s arrest, he was charged with simple assault, the unnamed United Airlines worker was fired, according to TMZ citing an airline spokesperson.
”United Airlines does not tolerate violence of any kind at our airports or on board our planes and we are working with local authorities to further investigate this matter,” the Daily Mail reported, citing a statement from the airline.
Langely is currently on the roster of the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampeders, having been signed as a free agent in February as a wide receiver.
According to his bio on the CFL team’s website; “Langley was selected in the third round (101st overall) by the Denver Broncos in the 2017 National Football League draft. He played 16 games as a defensive back over two seasons (2017-18) before being released on Sept. 1, 2019. Langley was then drafted by the XFL’s Houston Roughnecks in Oct. 2019, but left the league to join the practice squad of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks on Jan. 1, 2020. His practice squad agreement expired on Jan. 20, 2020, and he did not return to the XFL.”
Born in Marietta, Georgia, he played two seasons with the hometown Georgia Bulldogs before transferring to Lamar University where he was a defensive star, he was first-team all-Southland Conference at defensive back and punt returner.
His play in college caught the eye of the Broncos scouting staff and he was picked in the third round by the team in the 2017 NFL draft at number 101 overall, suiting up for games in two seasons but never doing enough to crack the lineup, he was released in 2019 and was last seen in the domestic pros as a member of the Seattle Seahawks practice squad.
It took a while but he has finally gotten his 10 minutes of fame.
