Peyton Manning and 100 Other Football Stars Who Last Played for the Wrong Team

Barring some crazy turn of events, Peyton Manning isn't going to play his final downs in the NFL as an Indianapolis Colt.

It doesn't seem right; he was supposed to play for the Colts his entire career and retire in the city where he became a star. Now he is going to be wearing orange and playing in Denver; what happened to my NFL?

It may seem like the end of the world, but Manning won't be the first person who played his final years with what many of us would call the wrong team.

His situation has got me thinking of how many players, Pro Bowlers or Hall Famers played in different uniforms at the end of their careers.

I decided to make a list of 100 players who ended their careers with the wrong team and in the wrong colors.

I wasn't able to include everyone (example: Kurt Warner and Norm Van Brocklin are just two that come to mind that didn't make the list), but I made sure to research a lot and wrote about a wide range of NFL players.

I included some of the bigger names at the end of the lists and tried to increase the length of the write-up for the player as the list goes on. There is a lot of stats and a lot of information, reader beware.

Lets get started with a former Heisman winner that made a name for himself in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys.
