Chris Johnson

Chris Johnson, also known by his nickname “CJ2K,” is known primarily for his stint with the Tennessee Titans. Drafted 24th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Titans, Johnson quickly established himself as one of the league’s most electrifying players.

In his sophomore season in 2009, Johnson rushed for 2006 yards, becoming one of the few players in NFL history to break the 2000-yard mark in a single season, which earned him the moniker “CJ2K.”

That same year, he also set the NFL’s single-season record for yards from scrimmage with 2509 yards and was named the NFL’s Offensive Player of the Year. After six seasons with the Titans, Johnson had shorter spells with the New York Jets and Arizona Cardinals before retiring in 2017.

Adrian Peterson

Adrian Peterson is widely regarded as one of the greatest running backs in NFL history. From his debut in 2007 through 2020, Peterson amassed over 14,900 rushing yards and 120 rushing touchdowns.

Selected 7th overall in the 2007 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, Peterson quickly established himself as a force in the league, setting the NFL single-game rushing record with 296 yards in his rookie season. His 2012 season was particularly noteworthy, as he fell just nine yards short of breaking the single-season rushing record after returning from a severe knee injury.

Peterson has earned numerous accolades over his career, including the NFL MVP award in 2012, and has been selected to the Pro Bowl seven times. He also played for the New Orleans Saints, Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins, and Detroit Lions.

He went on to play 19 seasons in the NFL, mainly with the Seahawks but he also had stints with the Kansas City Chiefs, Detroit Lions, Arizona Cardinals, and Tennessee Oilers (they were still the Oilers for two years before changing the name to Titans).

During his time with the Seahawks, Krieg became one of the most prolific passers in the franchise’s history. He earned three Pro Bowl selections (1984, 1988, 1989) and led the Seahawks to their first playoff appearance in 1983, where they reached the AFC Championship Game.

Krieg’s career statistics include over 38,000 passing yards, 261 touchdown passes, and a passer rating of 81.5. Known for his durability and ability to perform under pressure, Krieg’s leadership and skills as a quarterback helped elevate the teams he played for and cemented his place as one of the memorable players of his era.

He was a defensive end who played for various teams over his 12-year NFL career, including stints with the Texans, Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs, Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, Jacksonville Jaguars, and New York Jets.

Babin’s career highlights include two Pro Bowl selections in 2010 and 2011. In the 2011 season with the Eagles, he had a remarkable year, recording 18 sacks and was named 2nd Team All-Pro. His final career stats include 374 total tackles, 64.5 sacks, and 14 forced fumbles.

Blaine Gabbert

Blaine Gabbert was drafted in the first round, 10th overall, by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the 2011 NFL Draft. Gabbert’s time with the Jaguars was short-lived (and largely unsuccessful), and he was traded to the 49ers in 2014. He’s also played for the Cardinals, Buccaneers and Titans.

While Gabbert has not received any major individual awards or Pro Bowl selections, he does have the distinction of being a part of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ Super Bowl LV championship team, serving as the backup to Tom Brady.

Though largely seen as a journeyman backup quarterback, Gabbert has found ways to contribute when called upon and has carved out a lengthy career in that role. His career stats are modest, but he has managed to sustain a long career in the NFL, which is a feat in itself.
