Top 10 NFL Players Who Didn’t Look Right on a Different TeamIn the NFL you have legends who made their legacy playing for one franchise but they then played for a second team or third in some cases. Often times they do this near the end of their career in a surprising turn of events
The Top Ten
Emmitt Smith One of the three superstar "Triplets" for the Cowboys in the 1990s, Smith was a legendary running back with a lot of accomplishments throughout his Tenure for Dallas. eight Pro Bowls, three Super Bowl titles and an MVP award. He became a Cowboys icon and whenever you hear his name you immediately associate him with the Cowboys. His final year he suited up for the Arizona Cardinals in a very forgettable campaign
they signed him for team popularity that is it
Well this is the most recent to happen as Tom Brady had made a legacy for The Patriots starting in 2001 with the Tuck Rule Game and the rest is history. Easily one of the most legendary and accomplished players in NFL history who has declined in recent years has decided to go to Tampa Bay... of all teams this may have been the most shocking as Tampa has been irrelevant since 2002. We’ll see what happens but let’s just say history suggests it will be a flop most likely
Reggie White was often called The "Minister of Defense" and he will forever be known as an all time great sack artist in history for the Philadelphia Eagles and the Green Bay Packers. He would retire for a year before coming back again and playing for the Carolina Panthers for a year. It was his worst season in terms of stats in an otherwise hall of fame career
Strangely I don't even remember that run.
I don't blame you, I believe he came out of retirement for this in 2000.
Joe Montana obviously built his name and legacy for the San Francisco 49ers with 4 Super Bowls and 3 Super Bowl MVP’s. But in the early 90’s he would swap red jerseys and play for the Chiefs. He played there for a few seasons and brought some success to KC but at the end of the day it still didn’t feel right. But hey thanks Joe! You’ll always be a part of Chiefs Kingdom
man I can not believe we once had the epic duo of Mcnabb and Moss
I don’t think Anything was as unceremonious -- as oddly forgettable -- as Moss's eight-game run with Tennessee in 2010. Claimed off waivers after a botched return to the Vikings that year, the former Minnesota superstar and Patriots record-breaker made more noise in 2012, with the NFC champion Niners, than he did catching passes from Kerry Collins. I didn’t even know this happened until I did some research so yeah
oh and yeah was it Vince Young or Jake Locker at QB
Tennessee had Moss?
Hey as far as Viking fans are concerned this is the only team he played for
Contrary to popular belief he didn’t go directly from Green Bay to Minnesota he had a brief few games as a Jet before pulling the ultimate betrayal to the Packers fanbase going to their biggest rival. Just like Joe Montana he somehow wasn’t bad with the Vikings and nearly got them to the Super Bowl but it still wasn’t right to see a packers legend as a Minnesota Viking..
He was a long time Raven who went to Arizona for a year or that is until the Chiefs picked him up off waivers. And he actually played and got a ring with the Chiefs!
Johnny U was one of the best quarterbacks in his era and he had a lot of ties to the Baltimore Colts with 10 pro bowls in his career. However he would then play a season for the San Diego Chargers and that didn’t go well as he had just a 40.0 passer rating. Making the early legend’s departure just odd and forgettable
Sure he may be the most overrated Quarterback in history but “Broadway Joe” had ties with the New York Jets comparably like Montana does with the Niners. There's no way around it. a legendary Super Bowl win and plenty of MVP honors will do that for you, especially in a market like the Big Apple. Like many other quarterbacks he tried to get a little more out of his career He went across the country playing for the Rams. His numbers as a one-time Ram in '77 were actually slightly better than his final outing with the Jets, but three touchdowns and five picks in four games isn’t an ideal way to go out with a bang
Rice will forever be linked to San Francisco, where he won three Super Bowls, went to 13 Pro Bowls and broke more NFL records than any player to ever play the game. Which is why it’s weird seeing him in a Seahawks uniform playing alongside Matt Hasselbeck, Shaun Alexander and Bobby Engram. He was almost a Denver Bronco as well but called it quits in training camp
I actually don't mind the change with the Redskins. Its with the Saints that really didn't look right. He goes from Purple and yellow to suddenly black and gold.
I'm more used to seeing him in a Redskins jersey than a Vikings jersey.
I have actually gotten used to it I’ll tell you what was really odd was his tenure in Arizona. Does anyone remember that?
ehhh it is fun to watch him there I actually gotten used to it
Nah I think he’s done enough to be respected in either a Broncos or Colts Uniform this is actually an exception honestly
T.O. Was a San Francisco legend who had spent enough time with the San Francisco 49ers to warrant consideration as a one-team legend. He did make a few other late stops bouncing around a few teams and Without a doubt they were odd and he often played the villain. Apparently going from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Dallas Cowboys wasn't all too bad in his view. But Buffalo? Of all teams he played for that had to have been the most head scratching and bizarre. I don’t think anyone remembers his one year being Ryan Fitzpatrick’s top Target for the Bills.
