The first team I ever remember running the 3-4 was the Houston Oilers in the early/mid 70s. If I remember right, Curley Culp was the first-ever nose tackle.


Some teams in the 50s and maybe earlier ran a 5-2 defense, so maybe they had a nose tackle position, too. Les Bingaman comes to mind as a 300-lber who played over the center in those days, but he had other linemen beside him.
