Not sure if that answer is correct.

I did some searching and found this:


The Tallest NFL Players in History:
Daniel Bosoms
free safety for the Chicago Bears, with the height of 6'11" (1968).

And even more searching:


7-footer

No 7-footers in NFL currently.
In the near future, 7-footers probably will disappear from NBA.

7-foot players of the blond verge to the crisis of extermination.

Jonathan Ogden, offensive lineman from the Baltimore Ravens. He measures in at 6'9"
Brennan Curtin of the Green Bay Packers is listed at 6'9
Close behind is 2004 rookie Robert Gallery at 6'7 3/4"
Randy Moss is another tall NFL player at 6'6
Daniel Bosoms free safety for the Chicago Bears, with the height of 6'11"
(1968)
Richard Sligh, drafted by Oakland in 1967. He stood 7-foot even
the tallest football player ever was bob bobinghanger who played in 1944 was the tallest ever
bob bobinghanger was 7'7

That's 2 sources that say that Bob Bobinghanger was the tallest player in NFL history.

Thank you for the correction flotsamnjetsam.

I did quite a bit of searching, and never came across Bobinghanger. However, after viewing the two pages that you provide links to, and doing an independent search for Bobinghanger, it appears as if he was indeed the tallest player in NFL history.

If anyone were to provide his name in their guess, then they would be the winner. However, if his name isn't produced, then DDD should get the credit for the win, as he had the answer that was originally supplied.
