Sam Bradford

Sam Bradford was selected as the first overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams. A highly touted prospect, he won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award after throwing for 3,512 yards and 18 touchdowns in his first season.

Bradford’s career was marked by potential hindered by injuries. He played for the Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, and Arizona Cardinals, but recurrent injuries affected his ability to stay on the field consistently.

In the 2016 season with the Vikings, he led the NFL in completion percentage at 71.6% and threw for 3,877 yards and 20 touchdowns. However, his career never fully realized the promise of his early success, and he ended his time in the NFL with 19,449 passing yards and 103 touchdowns.

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.

Case Keenum

Case Keenum is perhaps best known as a Minnesota Viking where he led them to the NFC Championship game during the 2017 season. That season he threw for 3547 yards and 22 touchdowns, leading to an 11-3 record as a starter and a memorable playoff run, including the “Minneapolis Miracle” touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs.

Keenum began his career as an undrafted free agent with the Houston Texans in 2012. Despite his undrafted status, Keenum has managed to carve out a substantial career, including significant starting roles for the Rams, Vikings, Broncos, and Washington Football Team.

Over his career thus far, he’s passed for over 14,800 yards and 78 touchdowns.

Shaun Hill

Shaun Hill, a quarterback known for his persistence and resilience, carved out a 15-year career in the NFL despite going undrafted. Hill began his NFL journey with the Minnesota Vikings in 2002, followed by spells with the 49ers and Lions, before returning to the Vikings to end his career in 2016.

Throughout his career, Hill was frequently in the backup role but was often called upon to start due to injuries.

When he did play, Hill proved to be reliable and consistent, throwing for a total of 8295 yards, 49 touchdowns, and 30 interceptions, while maintaining a passer rating of 84.9 in 35 starts.

Steve Bono

Steve Bono is probably best remembered for his time with the San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs. However, Bono spent 15 years in the NFL playing for seven different teams: the Vikings, Steelers, 49ers, Chiefs, Packers, Rams, and Panthers.

After being selected in the sixth round of the 1985 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings, Bono had the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches and players in the league. For example, he joined the San Francisco 49ers in 1989, where he had the chance to learn from Hall of Fame QBs Joe Montana and Steve Young.

In 1995, Bono became the starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. That year, he led the Chiefs to a 13-3 record and a first-place finish in the AFC West. His performance earned him a spot in the Pro Bowl.

Fred Robbins

Fred Robbins was drafted in the second round of the 2000 NFL Draft by the Minnesota Vikings. He also played for the New York Giants and St. Louis Rams during his career, which spanned from 2000 to 2011.

Robbins recorded over 350 tackles and 35.5 sacks in his NFL career. He was an important part of the New York Giants’ defense that won Super Bowl XLII against the New England Patriots, in a game that featured one of the biggest upsets in Super Bowl history.

Though he never received Pro Bowl honors, Robbins was a consistent interior presence during his time in the league, known for his run-stopping abilities and leadership on the field.
