An NFL team is in the process of building an extensive manpower team.
In the meantime, some veterans are using the time off to become better workers.
A few weeks ago, I asked NFL players to tell me who they thought were the most underrated players in their era, and here’s who made the cut.
Here are the 10 best players in the NFL who got overlooked.
Michael Jordan – 1.
Jordan The greatest player in NBA history.
He was a great scorer, a tough defender and an outstanding passer.
But, Jordan was a master at the art of getting around the defense.
In the ’90s, he was one of the best defenders in the game.
He had a knack for getting around it and creating space to the basket, which was especially useful in the ’80s.
Jordan was the only player in the NBA to average at least 13.2 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
I’ve always been an admirer of his athleticism, so it’s no surprise that he was a perennial All-Star.
He finished his career with an average of 1.4 blocks per game, the fourth-highest average among all players who played in the league.2.
Tim Tebow – 2.
Tim If you watch the New York Jets’ first game this season, you’ll see Tebow in the locker room with the first two picks of the draft.
Tebow was the Jets’ No. 1 overall pick and was the team’s best passer.
Tebows best play was when he ran the ball from the shotgun, which is when he was an All-Pro.
Tebbs biggest mistake?
He tried to run it from the right side.
He ran it from right to left and missed a lot of throws.
But the Jets didn’t win a Super Bowl with that play.
Peyton Manning – 3.
Manning Manning was a very good quarterback.
He played for seven teams and was named to two Pro Bowls.
He also was named a First-Team All-NFL three times.
In his final year, he threw for more than 5,000 yards and threw 38 touchdown passes.
But his biggest mistake was when the Denver Broncos went 4-12 in his final three seasons.
He made a lot more money than he should have.4.
Tim Couch – 4.
Couch Couch Couch was a quarterback who was drafted in the fourth round of the 1995 NFL draft.
He threw for 5,907 yards and 27 touchdowns in seven seasons.
However, he only led the league in passing touchdowns in his rookie year, the year he played for the Broncos.5.
Brett Favre – 5.
Favre Favre is one of my favorite quarterbacks to watch.
He’s the greatest QB of all time and he played in three Super Bowls, including one in 2009.
But he also made a mistake that I can only describe as a career-ending injury.
His Achilles tendon tore in his right knee.
His career ended after a few years.
He retired after the 2006 season.6.
Kurt Warner – 6.
Warner Warner Warner is one a legend.
He became the NFL Rookie of the Year in 1985, and he was also a first-team All-Rookie.
However the best play he made in his career was his interception against the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXVIII.
Warner threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Marvin Harrison with 3:42 left in the third quarter.
Warner is the only one of four players to throw for at least 3,000 career yards and one TD in the Super Bowl.7.
Brett Hundley – 7.
Hundly Brett Hounds career was the most impressive to me.
He won four Super Bowl rings with the Patriots and was a second-round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints.
However his biggest thing that made him successful was his ability to get rid of the football, which he did at the NFL Scouting Combine in 1998.
He ended up going to the Vikings after that and was one the best pass-catchers in the history of the game in the early 2000s.8.
Drew Brees – 8.
Brees Brees was a Pro Bowl quarterback in his first four years in the Big Easy.
He led the Saints to a Super 12 championship in 2002, and led them to another Super Bowl in 2014.
However he also had some struggles in his later years.
For example, he missed the first eight games of his career and his career stats in 2007 were: 11, 8, 4, 7, 5, 4 and 3.
He did win one Super Bowl, which came with the Saints.9.
Aaron Rodgers – 9.
Rodgers Rodgers had a career year in 2015.
He broke all the records he set in his second season.
He set the NFL single-season record for passing yards in a season with 3,079.
His best game of the year was when Rodgers ran for 1
