Even if Jesse Holley finishes this entire season having only played the hero once, his return to the NFL will have been a success.

Holley, who was the winner of the Michael Irvin reality competition 4th and Long, made the big catch in overtime to help lead the Cowboys to their victory over the 49ers earlier this season. Much like a Hollywood redemption story in which a player makes one great play, Holley has had little opportunity to do much more this year. 

Still, he had a grab of 17 yards today that extended a scoring drive, so maybe Holley is not done.

Here are several more unexpected success stories in the NFL this season.
