American football is one of the most intense games in the world. It’s fast-paced, aggressive, unpredictable, and makes for truly memorable moments that always leave fans wanting more.
While it’s not the oldest sport in the world, it has quickly become one of the most popular, and not just in the United States.
Today’s football players are highly trained and highly skilled athletes that give it their all when they are out on the field.
Over the years, several notable players have entered the spotlight, giving them a chance to show off their talent against their biggest competitors. Here we will look at some of the most highly celebrated and successful American football players that the world has ever seen.
There are not many football fans out there that haven’t heard the name of famous player Peyton Manning. His career as a professional quarterback launched his career into the limelight, and he spent 14 seasons playing with the Indianapolis Colts.
He would eventually move over the Denver Broncos, where he would be a leading man for four seasons, as well as winning a Superbowl with each team, making him the only player in football history do to so. He would earn the title of “The Sheriff” due to his NFL records for both touchdowns and for passing yards.
Well known for a number of feats out on the field, Aaron Rodgers currently holds the top touchdown-to-interception ratio of any player in the National Football League, and many consider him to be the very best football quarterback to have ever lived.
Along with his countless achievements while playing the game, Rodgers has also earned a reputation for his charity and humanitarian efforts, including being a key fundraiser for the MACC Fund.
Rob Gronkowski has become a legend in his own right within the world of professional American football and is regarded as the best tight end of his generation. Along with his incredible skill, he also became a particular favourite among the people, who would cheer his name as he entered the field.
Part of this was his skill on the footballer, but also because of his personality. In terms of his career performance, Gronkowski earned several National Football League records during his time participating in the tight end.
Most football lovers don’t really agree on much, but the majority will probably agree that Tom Brady is the greatest football player that ever lived. He is widely known as the best quarterback not just of his generation, but of all time, and at the age of 41, he would go on to hold the record for the oldest quarterback to win the Super Bowl in the history of the national Football league.
His skills and good looks means that he became something of an instant celebrity, and would also participate in television series as well as a number of famous commercials, as well as be a part of all kinds of media, from betting sites in New Zealand to video games.
