Bill Romanowski grew up in Connecticut, where he went to the Rockville High School, and later studied at Boston College, graduating in 1988.

He signed his first professional contract with the San Francisco 49ers in 1988, and already won the Super Bowl in his debut season after the 49ers defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 20-16, led by the Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, and they successfully defended the title in the next season, when they beat the Denver Broncos 55-10. Although Romanowski wasn’t a starter in his first two years in San Francisco, he played a role in winning two titles, before moving to the Philadelphia Eagles in 1994.

However, he didn’t stay long in Philly, and after the 1994-95 season Romanowski signed a deal with the Denver Broncos in 1996, who were one of the best teams of the decade, with the legendary John Elway and Terrell Davis as their leaders. He became a starting linebacker in Denver, and after playing one season for the club Bill won his third Super Bowl, when the Broncos upset the Green Bay Packers, 31-24 in the XXXII Super Bowl in Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego, California. The Broncos defended the title the next season, beating the Atlanta Falcons, 34-19. While at Denver, Romanowski earned two Pro Bowl selections, in 1996 and 1998, and he stayed with the team until 2001, when he moved to the Oakland Raiders. He played for the Raiders in the 2002-03 season, playing in his fifth Super Bowl in a 21-48 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, after which he retired from professional football.

During his career of 16 years, Romanowski played a remarkable 243 consecutive games from 1988 to 2003, setting the record which was broken by Chris Gardocki in 2006. He recorded 1,105 tackles, 39.5 sacks, 18 forced fumbles, and 18 interceptions during his 16-year stint in the NFL.

However, after his career had ended, ESPN listed him as the fifth dirtiest player in the professional team sport’s history. A lot of incidents surrounded Romanowski’s career, including with teammates as well as opposing players. In 1995, while playing for the Eagles, Bill kicked the Arizona Cardinals’ fullback Larry Centers in the head, after which he was ejected from the game and later fined $4,500. In 1997, while he played for the Broncos, Romanowski broke the jaw of Carolina Panthers’ quarterback Kerry Collins after Bill’s illegal helmet-to-helmet hit, and was fined $20,000. Later that season, he spat in the face of 49ers wide receiver J. J. Stokes. Two years later, Romanowski was fined $42,500 for hitting the Kansas City Chiefs’ tight end, Tony Gonzalez, and then he threw a ball in the crotch area of the New York Jets’ Bryan Cox. In 2003, Bill attacked his Oakland Raiders teammate Marcus Williams and crushed his eye socket with a punch, forcing Williams to retire after the incident. Williams later sued him for $3.4 million of damages, but was awarded $340,000 for lost wages and medical expenses. Throughout his career, Romanowski has been accused of being a racist on several occasions.

After his playing career had ended, Bill published the bestseller in 2005 entitled “Romo My Life on the Edge: Living Dreams and Slaying Dragons”, while in 2006, he founded a nutritional supplement company called Nutrition 53. He applied for the head coach post at Denver Broncos in 2009, but the team’s owner Pat Bowlen decided to hire Josh Daniels. He has had an interest as a part-owner in NASCAR since 2013.

Regarding his personal life, Bill Romanowski has been married to Julie since 1993, and has two children with her.
