Bradley Chubb

Bradley Chubb was selected as the 5th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. During his rookie season, Chubb made an immediate impact, recording 12 sacks, which set a franchise record for a rookie.

Chubb’s playing style is characterized by his pass-rushing ability and his relentless motor. He was a consistent force on the edge for the Broncos (and now Dolphins), showcasing his skills as both a run defender and a quarterback disruptor.

Injuries have affected parts of his career, but when healthy, Chubb is one of the most promising young pass-rushers in the league.

Brandon Marshall

Brandon Marshall played 13 seasons in the National Football League. He was known for his size, athleticism, and ability to make difficult catches in traffic. Marshall was selected by the Denver Broncos in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft.

Marshall had several productive seasons with the Broncos before moving on to the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, New York Jets, New York Giants, and finally the Seattle Seahawks. He recorded eight 1,000-yard receiving seasons over his career, showcasing his consistency as a top-tier wide receiver.

Marshall was selected to the Pro Bowl six times and was an NFL All-Pro selection twice. He also set an NFL record with 21 receptions in a single game while with the Denver Broncos in 2009.

Teddy Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater was drafted by the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft after a stellar collegiate career at the University of Louisville. In Minnesota, Bridgewater showed promise early, earning a Pro Bowl selection in his second season.

Unfortunately, a severe knee injury during the 2016 preseason sidelined him for nearly two full seasons. Upon his return, Bridgewater spent time with the Jets and the Saints, filling in admirably for an injured Drew Brees in 2019.

His performance led to a starting opportunity with the Carolina Panthers in 2020, where he provided steady quarterback play. In 2021, Bridgewater was traded to the Denver Broncos, where he competed for and won the starting quarterback job.

  • Pro Bowl (Vikings)
  • 3000+ Yard Passing Season (Vikings, Panthers, Broncos)

Jay Cutler

Jay Cutler was selected by the Denver Broncos with the 11th overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He spent three seasons with the Broncos before being traded to the Chicago Bears, where he played the majority of his career. Cutler earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2008 and later became the Bears’ all-time leading passer.

Over his 12-season NFL career, Cutler threw for more than 35,000 yards and over 200 touchdowns. His strong arm and aggressive playing style made him a prominent figure in the league, though his career was often marked by inconsistency and a high number of interceptions (twice leading the league).

After a brief stint with the Miami Dolphins, Cutler retired following the 2017 season. His legacy includes some standout seasons and memorable performances, contributing to his status as one of the more well-known quarterbacks of his era.

Brock Osweiler

Brock Osweiler was selected in the second round, 57th overall, by the Denver Broncos in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Osweiler spent time as a backup to Peyton Manning in Denver, and he notably started seven games in the 2015 season when Manning was injured. He played a key role in helping the Broncos secure the top seed in the AFC that year, and the team went on to win Super Bowl 50.

After the Super Bowl win, Osweiler signed a lucrative free-agent deal with the Houston Texans but struggled to live up to expectations. He was traded to the Cleveland Browns, then returned to the Broncos, and finished his career with the Miami Dolphins in 2018.

Chase Edmonds

Chase Edmonds was selected in the fourth round of the 2018 NFL Draft, 134th overall, by the Arizona Cardinals. Edmonds was utilized as both a primary running back and a complement to other backs in the Cardinals’ system.

His stats have seen a gradual increase, and he has proven to be a valuable asset, especially in PPR (Points Per Reception) fantasy football leagues, thanks to his receiving skills.

After 4 years in Arizona, Edmonds split time in 2022 with the Broncos and the Dolphins, but injuries hampered his overall production for the year.

Terrell Buckley

Terrell Buckley played college football at Florida State University, where he excelled as a defensive back and was recognized as a consensus All-American. He was also awarded the prestigious Jim Thorpe Award in 1991, given to the top defensive back in college football.

In the 1992 NFL Draft, Buckley was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the fifth overall pick. Known for his speed and ball-hawking skills, he quickly made a name for himself in the league. Buckley spent three seasons with the Packers before joining the Miami Dolphins in 1995.

Buckley had successful stints with several teams during his 14-year NFL career, including the Denver Broncos, New England Patriots, and New York Jets. While with the Patriots in 2001, he was part of the team that won Super Bowl XXXVI, marking a significant high point in his professional career.

Wes Welker

Wes Welker is widely known for his productive stint with the New England Patriots from 2007 to 2012. His quickness and ability to read defenses made him an ideal slot receiver, resulting in five Pro Bowl selections.

Welker led the NFL in receptions three times during his career, 2007, 2009, and 2011, and became the first receiver in NFL history with five 110-catch seasons. He later joined the Denver Broncos, reaching another Super Bowl, but unfortunately didn’t secure a championship.

He ended his 12-year career with 903 receptions, 9924 receiving yards, and 50 touchdowns.

Steve DeBerg

Steve DeBerg was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the 10th round of the 1977 NFL Draft, 275th overall. He played for several teams over a lengthy career that spanned 21 years, including stints with the San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Atlanta Falcons.

DeBerg’s NFL career totals include 34,241 passing yards and 196 touchdown passes. He completed 2,874 of his 5,024 passing attempts, leading to a 57.2% completion rate. He also threw 204 interceptions.

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.

DeBerg Key Stats

  • 3000+ Passing Yard Season (49ers, Chiefs)

Gus Frerotte

Gus Frerotte is known for his journeyman career in the NFL as a quarterback from 1994 to 2008. He played for seven different teams, including the Washington Football Team, Detroit Lions, and Minnesota Vikings.

Perhaps his best season came in 1996 when he was named to the Pro Bowl while with Washington. In that season, he threw for 3453 yards and 12 touchdowns. Frerotte’s most memorable moment might be his infamous headbutt celebration which resulted in a sprained neck.

Over his career, he accumulated 21,291 passing yards and 114 touchdowns, serving mostly as a solid backup or spot starter.
