Kyle Orton

Kyle Orton had a respectable 10-year career in the NFL, navigating through the league as a reliable and effective journeyman quarterback. Drafted by the Chicago Bears in 2005, Orton helped guide the team to a 10-5 record in his rookie season, establishing himself as a proficient game manager.

Over his career, he played for the Bears, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Dallas Cowboys, and Buffalo Bills, starting 82 games in total.

Although not renowned for eye-popping statistics, he finished his career with 18,037 passing yards and 101 touchdowns, demonstrating a dependability that led to a longer-than-average career for a non-star quarterback.

Peyton Hillis

Peyton Hillis is a former running back who played in the NFL for seven seasons. Hillis played college football for the University of Arkansas before being selected by the Denver Broncos in the 7th round of the 2008 NFL Draft.

Hillis had his best season in 2010 while with the Cleveland Browns. He rushed for 1177 yards and 11 touchdowns, while also recording 477 receiving yards and 2 receiving touchdowns. His breakout performance earned him a spot on the cover of the “Madden NFL 12” video game.

However, Hillis struggled to replicate his success in subsequent seasons due to a combination of injuries and lackluster performances. He had stints with the Chiefs, Buccaneers, and Giants before retiring after the 2014 season.

Chester McGlockton

Chester McGlockton was selected in the first round, 16th overall, by the Los Angeles Raiders in the 1992 NFL Draft. Playing as a defensive tackle, he quickly made an impact in the league.

During his career, McGlockton was named to the Pro Bowl four times (1994–1997) and earned 1st-Team All-Pro honors in 1995. Over his 12-year NFL career, he played for the Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Denver Broncos, and New York Jets. His imposing size and powerful play made him a dominant force on the defensive line.

McGlockton accumulated 51 sacks and 558 tackles in his career, showcasing his ability to disrupt opposing offenses.

One of the highlights of DeBerg’s career was his ability to continue playing at a high level despite his age. He started games in three different decades, and he became (at the time) the oldest player to start at quarterback in an NFL game at the age of 44 years and 279 days.
