Every season, hundreds of rookies, veterans, and even a handful of "retired" players all lay it on the line for a chance to suit up on Sundays. The news of Bobby Taylor's comeback attempt had me thinking of a few other noteworthy players who stepped away from the game only to try for one last Sunday.
For some, like Jamal Anderson, Terrel Davis, etc., the injuries were too much to overcome. For others like Michael Vick, they have no one to blame but themselves. For others, like Brian Piccolo and Kenechi Udezi—grave illnesses forced them away.
This is about those who fought for that second chance, and what happened after.
