After five productive seasons with the Seahawks, which included three 1,000-yard receiving seasons, Galloway was traded to the Dallas Cowboys in 2000. His stint with the Cowboys was marred by injuries, but he rebounded in 2005 and 2006 in Tampa Bay with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons.

Galloway finished with stops with the Patriots and the Washington Football Team. He ended his career in 2010 with over 10,000 receiving yards and 77 receiving touchdowns.

Deion Branch

Deion Branch was selected by the Patriots in the second round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of the University of Louisville. He quickly made a name for himself with his precise route running and became one of quarterback Tom Brady’s favorite targets.

One of Branch’s most memorable moments came during Super Bowl XXXIX in 2005. In a game that saw the Patriots edge out the Philadelphia Eagles, Branch was named Super Bowl MVP after recording 11 receptions for 133 yards. This performance tied the Super Bowl record for receptions in a game.

Branch spent time with the Seahawks between his stints with the Patriots, but he would eventually return to New England, showcasing the strong bond he shared with the team and its fan base.

Lawyer Milloy

Lawyer Milloy was drafted by the New England Patriots in the second round of the 1996 NFL Draft. Milloy played with the Patriots from 1996 to 2002, becoming a key piece of their defense during that time.

With the Patriots, Milloy was a four-time Pro Bowl selection (1998, 1999, 2001, 2002) and earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 1999. One of his career highlights was winning Super Bowl XXXVI with the Patriots when they defeated the St. Louis Rams.

After his time in New England, Milloy moved on to the Buffalo Bills, where he played from 2003 to 2005. He then joined the Atlanta Falcons for the 2006 to 2008 seasons before concluding his NFL career with the Seattle Seahawks in 2009 and 2010.

While with the Patriots, he was part of an offense that set multiple records during the 2007 season, though they ultimately fell short in the Super Bowl. Evans won a Super Bowl ring with the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 season, defeating the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV.
