Two-Sport Standouts On Defense

Continuing on with yesterday’s roster compilation of professional athletes who don’t play football, but could suit up for an NFL team, here’s my list for defense.

This all started because NFL.com asked NFL players which athlete from another sport could take the field as a football player and be successful. Go here to watch the video.

If the Broncos had to fill the defensive side of the ball with professional athletes, here’s who I would like to see there:

Left defensive end – Former NBA player Dennis Rodman

Left defensive tackle – Hockey player Peter Forsberg

Right defensive tackle - UFC fighter Anderson Silva

Right defensive end - Former Jazz forward Karl Malone

Left linebacker - Former NHL player Shawn Antoski

Middle linebacker – Skater Apolo Anton Ohno

Right linebacker - Hockey player Mark Messier

Left cornerback – Celtics guard Rajon Rondo

Strong safety – MLB player Ivan Rodriguez

Free safety - Spurs guard Manu Ginobili

Right cornerback –  Sprinter Usain Bolt

Leave a comment a tell us how you would fill your defensive roster.
