Iron Men

Postby Atog » Fri Sep 07, 2007 7:12 pm

If you had to fill all 22 starting positions on an NFL team plus special teams with 11 players, what players would you use?
There aren't that many Iron Men in the NFL right now that I can think of.

Mike Furrey has played WR and FS.
Charles Woodson played some WR at Michigan.
Champ Bailey played some WR, I think?
Mike Vrabel plays TE and LB
Jon Bradley, who barely made the Lions roster this year, played DT but is on our roster as a FB.

Anybody else?

Warren Sapp got some work at TE in the past, but really I'd make him a full back I think.

There aren't any true ironmen for a variety of reasons. You have to dig back to Deion Sanders to come up with one, and even then it was a short-lived both playing both ways.

Was his name Troy Edwards (?) of the Pats who played WR and CB/S for them the last couple years. He didn't do it routinely, but had some games where he played both positions.

Devin Hester could probably double on defense and WR/special teams.

I'll bet the Hefty Lefty (fat QB for the Giants) could play some defense. :-b

Rex Grossman would be a good QB/SS. Hes really underrated on the defensive side of the ball.

Ah yes, Troy Brown. I knew Edwards was the wrong name but couldn't noodle it.
