Zay Jones

Zay Jones is a wide receiver who was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft. After a successful career at East Carolina University, where he set the NCAA Division I record for career receptions, Jones had a promising start with the Bills but ultimately didn’t live up to expectations.

Jones was traded to the Las Vegas Raiders during the 2019 season. He played a more secondary role in the Raiders’ receiving corps, providing depth and contributing on special teams.

This past season with the Jaguars was the best season of Jones’ career thus far racking up 82 receptions, 823 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns.

Mike Glennon

Mike Glennon is a quarterback who played in the NFL from 2013 to 2022. Drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Glennon started his rookie season as the backup, but later started 13 games.

He showed promise, throwing for 2608 yards and 19 touchdowns with only 9 interceptions in his rookie season. However, Glennon found himself in backup roles in the subsequent years, with stops at the Chicago Bears, Arizona Cardinals, Oakland Raiders, and Jacksonville Jaguars.

Over his career, he threw for over 7000 yards and 47 touchdowns.

Yannick Ngakoue

Yannick Ngakoue is a defensive end known for his pass-rushing skills. He was drafted in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ngakoue had an impactful rookie season, recording eight sacks and establishing himself as a promising talent in the league.

After a strong stint with the Jaguars, where he earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2017 and recorded 37.5 sacks, Ngakoue was traded to the Minnesota Vikings in 2020. His stay in Minnesota was short-lived, and he was subsequently traded to the Baltimore Ravens during the 2020 season.

Ngakoue then signed with the Las Vegas Raiders for the 2021 season and the Colts in 2022. Over his career thus far, Ngakoue has been a disruptive force on the defensive line, amassing 65 sacks and 21 forced fumbles.

Howard’s most memorable achievement came during his time with the Packers when he was named the MVP of Super Bowl XXXI. In that game, he returned a kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, becoming the first and only player to win Super Bowl MVP solely for special teams play.

Over his career, Howard returned 8 punts for touchdowns. His return skills, particularly his performance in the Super Bowl, solidified his place in NFL history.

Known for his resilience, Beuerlein moved around a lot during his career, playing for five different teams and amassing over 24,000 passing yards and 147 touchdowns.

Andre Rison

Andre Rison was selected in the first round, 22nd overall, by the Indianapolis Colts in the 1989 NFL Draft. Throughout his career, Rison’s big-play ability made him one of the most exciting receivers of his era, and his contributions on the field were often matched by his colorful personality off of it.

During his career, Rison played for multiple teams including the Colts, Atlanta Falcons, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Oakland Raiders. As a wide receiver, he amassed over 10,000 receiving yards and 84 touchdown receptions.

After spending three seasons with the Jaguars, he was traded to the Cincinnati Bengals, where his career saw a significant resurgence. Nelson led the NFL in interceptions in 2015 with eight, which resulted in a Pro Bowl selection.

In 2016, Nelson signed with the Oakland Raiders, where he played for three seasons and earned his second Pro Bowl selection. Throughout his 12-season NFL career, Nelson was known for his hard-hitting style and knack for creating turnovers. He recorded more than 800 tackles, intercepted 38 passes, and had 9 forced fumbles.

Rob Johnson

Rob Johnson, a product of USC, was selected in the fourth round of the 1995 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Though he was largely a backup to Mark Brunell during his time with the Jaguars, Johnson made an impression in his first career start, leading the Jaguars to a victory with 294 passing yards and two touchdowns.

His performance caught the attention of the Buffalo Bills, who traded for him in 1998. However, Johnson’s time in Buffalo was marked by a competitive and somewhat controversial quarterback controversy with Doug Flutie.

Following his stint in Buffalo, Johnson went on to have shorter stints with several teams, including the Buccaneers (won a ring in 2002), Redskins, Raiders, and Giants. Despite never becoming a long-term starter, Johnson remained a respected player for his abilities and commitment.
