Everybody thought that Tom Brady would be on the New England Patriots forever. However, after 20 seasons, he finally ended his time in Boston and moved to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers where it looks like he’ll finish his career. Meanwhile, Philip Rivers recently left the Chargers for the Indianapolis Colts after 16 seasons.
There is always something strange about seeing long-serving stars like these leave one iconic uniform for another. They do so because their franchise has pushed them out for a younger player, or because they want one last massive contract. But a selfish part of us wishes that they just stayed with their first team until the end. So today, we’ll look at 25 NFL stars who sadly ended their careers with another team via The Spun. Check out the list below.
25. Tony Dorsett
An 11-season veteran with the Dallas Cowboys, Dorsett holds a special place in the hearts of their fans. The running back entered the draft after a Heisman-winning season and took the NFL by storm. He went on to win the Super Bowl and made four Pro Bowl appearances.
There’s nothing quite like success to endear yourself to fans. Meanwhile, he also got them off of their seats as he rushed for over 1,000 yards in eight of his first nine seasons. It looked like he was unstoppable. Finally, the Cowboys traded him to the Broncos before the 34-year-old ended his career after a single season in Denver.
