Jeff Hostetler

Drafted by the New York Giants in the 3rd round of the 1984 NFL Draft, Jeff Hostetler played 12 seasons in the NFL. Though initially a backup to Phil Simms, Hostetler gained national attention when he stepped in for an injured Simms in the 1990 season and led the Giants to a Super Bowl XXV victory over the Buffalo Bills.

After his time with the Giants, Hostetler went on to play for the Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins. With the Raiders, he earned a Pro Bowl selection in 1994. Over his NFL career, Hostetler threw for 16,430 passing yards, with 94 touchdown passes and 71 interceptions.
