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.
