Josh McCown

Josh McCown, known for his resilience and adaptability, carved out a noteworthy 17-year career in the NFL – mostly as a reliable backup quarterback.

From his entry into the league with the Arizona Cardinals in 2002, he played for 9 different teams, a few times as the starting QB, but also stepping in and performing effectively whenever called upon when he wasn’t.

He threw for over 17,000 yards and 98 touchdowns, holding a career passer rating of around 80. Particularly impressive stints came with the Chicago Bears in 2013 and the New York Jets in 2017.

Ameer Abdullah

Ameer Abdullah, a running back with an exceptional college career at Nebraska, was drafted by the Lions in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft. Abdullah made his presence felt with his quick acceleration and shiftiness. However, he has dealt with several injuries throughout his career, affecting his production.

Abdullah also played for the Vikings and Panthers, providing depth in the backfield and contributing on special teams, particularly in kickoff returns. Even though he hasn’t consistently been a starting running back, his versatility has allowed him to maintain a role on teams.

Omar Gaither

Omar Gaither was selected in the 5th round of the 2006 NFL Draft, 168th overall, by the Philadelphia Eagles. Playing the linebacker position, Gaither spent five seasons with the Eagles before having brief stints with the Carolina Panthers and Oakland Raiders.

During his NFL career, Gaither recorded over 300 total tackles, six sacks, and two interceptions. His best season came in 2007 with the Eagles, where he recorded 102 total tackles and started all 16 games.

Though he never earned Pro Bowl or All-Pro honors, Gaither was a reliable and steady contributor at the linebacker position, especially in his early years with the Eagles.

Rodney Peete

While he never made it to a Pro Bowl, Peete was a reliable starter for several years, particularly during his time with the Lions. His longevity in the league is a rarity for a player who was not a high draft pick.

Brandon LaFell

Brandon LaFell was drafted in the third round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the Carolina Panthers. LaFell played for the Panthers from 2010 to 2013, making some solid contributions as a reliable receiving option.
