As a pro football player, not only are you making ridiculous amounts of money for playing, but you also have a chance at scoring some serious endorsement money. However, you might want to reconsider if offered a deal as the new face of the Madden video game, considering the track record of your predecessors:
2000-Barry Sanders, Detroit Lions—Sanders didn’t play a single down during the 1999-2000 season (or ever again), retiring after a ten year career.
2000-Dorsey Levens, Green Bay Packers—Later copies of the game to featured Levens, who was bothered by a bad knee in the following season, leading to reduction to a reserve player (aka benchwarmer). He was fired in 2001.
2001- Eddie George, Tennessee Titans—Blew a pass that led to the other team’s touchdown in the Divisional Playoffs. In the following season, his rushing average sank to an all time low, and incurred persistent injuries.
2002- Daunte Culpepper, Minnesota Vikings—Culpepper’s 2001 season was less than impressive, leading to a 4-7 record before Culpepper got a knee injury and was benched the last five games of the year.2003- Marshall Faulk, St. Louis Rams—Incurred an injured ankle; Rams missed playoffs despite having been in 2/3 Super Bowls in the preceding three years.
2004- Michael Vick, Atlanta Falcons—fractured right fibula in a pre-season game
2005- Ray Lewis, Baltimore Ravens—In 2004, achieved no interceptions (for the only time in his NFL career), sat out final game with an injury. In 2005, torn right hamstring.
2006—Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia Eagles—Made a big show of not being afraid of the curse in a press release. In the first game of the year, suffered a sports hernia, which eventually led to a surgery that took him out for seven games.
2007- Shaun Alexander, Seattle Seahawks—Broke left foot, missed six games.
2008- Vince Young, Tennessee Titans—Hurt right quadriceps in fifth game of season. First time Young had ever sat out of a game because of an injury.
