And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played on both the Bills and Cardinals.

John Fina

John Fina was selected in the first round, 27th overall, by the Buffalo Bills in the 1992 NFL Draft.

Fina was a 6’5″ 300lb offensive tackle who played primarily for the Buffalo Bills, where he spent 10 seasons from 1992 to 2001. Fina also played a single season for the Arizona Cardinals in 2002 before retiring.

During his career, Fina was part of an effective offensive line that helped pave the way for running backs like Thurman Thomas. While he didn’t achieve individual accolades like Pro Bowl selections, his steady play contributed to Buffalo’s offensive success during his tenure with the team. He played in 155 games, starting in 131 of them.

John Brown

John Brown was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft, Brown showcased his ability to stretch the field early on. His breakthrough season came in 2015 when he notched over 1000 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.

Brown’s stint with the Cardinals was marked by consistent production but also by struggles with injuries. He signed with the Baltimore Ravens for the 2018 season, where he led the team in receiving yards, despite a mid-season quarterback change.

Brown then joined the Buffalo Bills in 2019, where he had a standout season with over 1000 yards receiving and six touchdowns. Brown then bounced around with a few teams in 2021 before landing back in Buffalo.

Derek Anderson

Derek Anderson had an NFL career spanning over a decade. He was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the sixth round of the 2005 NFL Draft but didn’t make his mark until 2007 when he became the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns.

That year for the Browns, Anderson had a Pro Bowl season, throwing for 3787 yards and 29 touchdowns. However, he couldn’t maintain that level of performance in the subsequent seasons.

Anderson spent the majority of his career as a reliable backup, primarily for the Carolina Panthers from 2011 to 2017, where he occasionally stepped in for Cam Newton. He ended his NFL journey with the Buffalo Bills in 2018. Anderson passed for 10,878 yards and 60 touchdowns over his career.
