Matt Breida

Matt Breida was signed as an undrafted free agent by the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. Breida quickly made a name for himself with his speed and agility. During his time in San Francisco, he rushed for over 1900 yards in three seasons.

Breida’s career then led him to the Miami Dolphins (2020), Buffalo Bills (2021) and New York Giants (2022). While his statistical impact has fluctuated throughout his career, Breida’s versatility and capability as both a runner and receiver have provided valuable depth for his teams.

Throughout his career, Breida’s undrafted status and subsequent success have served as a testament to his hard work and determination in the NFL.

Ed McCaffrey

Ed McCaffrey was a reliable wide receiver who spent the majority of his 13-season NFL career with the Denver Broncos, from 1995 to 2003. Before his time with the Broncos, he had stints with the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers.

McCaffrey amassed 7,422 receiving yards and 55 touchdowns on 565 receptions in his career. Known for his consistent hands and precise route running, he played a crucial role in the Broncos’ back-to-back Super Bowl victories in 1997 and 1998.

He earned a Pro Bowl nod in 1998 and was an instrumental part of one of the most potent offenses in the league during that time.

Colt McCoy

Colt McCoy is a seasoned NFL quarterback, having made his professional debut in 2010. Playing college football at Texas, McCoy was highly decorated and won numerous awards including the 2008 Walter Camp Award.

He started his NFL career with the Cleveland Browns, later moving to the San Francisco 49ers, Washington Football Team, and New York Giants. As of the end of the 2022 season, he has thrown for over 7900 yards with a completion percentage over 62% and has thrown for 34 touchdowns.

Despite numerous injuries, McCoy’s ability to step into the starting role when needed has proven invaluable for his teams.

Robbie Gould

Robbie Gould, one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history, started his career with the Chicago Bears in 2005 and quickly made a name for himself with his reliable performances.

As the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, Gould netted 1207 points during his time with the Bears. His record-setting (Bears) 58-yard field goal in 2013 remains a highlight of his tenure in Chicago.

Recognized for his outstanding season in 2006, he was named to the Pro Bowl and earned All-Pro honors. After leaving the Bears in 2015, Gould took his talents to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017, where his clutch-kicking abilities continued to shine.

David Carr

David Carr was selected as the first overall pick in the 2002 NFL Draft by the Houston Texans. Carr played for the Texans from 2002 to 2006 before moving on to other teams, including the Panthers, Giants, and the 49ers.

Though he entered the league with much promise, Carr’s career was largely marked by the high number of times he was sacked, particularly during his tenure with the Texans. He was sacked a record 76 times in his rookie season, which hampered his development and performance.

While his career as a starter did not live up to the expectations that come with being a first overall draft pick, Carr did find some success in a backup role. Carr finished his NFL career with more than 14,000 passing yards and 65 touchdowns.
