From 1966 Sports Illustrated Vault: "(The Houston Oilers) linebacking is good, with Johnny Baker on the left and Danny Brabham on the right, but in the secondary the Oilers are worried about left corner back. Tony Banfield had an off year last season after knee surgery and though he was All-AFL in 1962, he has been dropped."
