Here’s 10 NFL performers who would be stars regardless of the times.
First things first. The list below numbers 10 but there are so many other great players that could suit up regardless of the times and be stars in the National Football League. In this instance, it’s arguably the best of the best and any numbers of factors were considered.
From just how dominant the performer was during his stay in the league as well as the physical nature of his personal game. The choices below include seven members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, two wide receivers who rarely dropped the ball (and one that dropped opponents) and a gifted tight end that recently came out of retirement and wound up with a new team.
10. T Anthony Munoz
The greatest offensive lineman in NFL history? That’s quite the accolade to place on any player but many have felt for years that Pro Football Hall of Fame tackle Anthony Munoz fits the bill (legendary New England Patriots’ guard John Hannah has also been mentioned with a similar distinction).
The third overall pick in the 1980 NFL draft enjoyed solid rookie season. And over the course of the next 11 years, he was a Pro Bowler each season and earned All-Pro honors nine times during his Hall of Fame career.
Munoz dominated opponents throughout his years in the NFL and was part of two Cincinnati Bengals’ Super Bowl teams and 1981 and 1988. To see him go against the likes of Deacon Jones, Doug Atkins and some of the other legendary pass rushers in football history would be a treat.
