Stouffer is probably the most obscure player on this list but he had a notorious contract situation. He starred for Colorado State before the Cardinals drafted him in 1987. Expectations were high for the first-round pick but he never received a snap in St. Louis. That’s because a contract holdout kept him on the sidelines for the entire season.
The quarterback refused to accept their pay offer because he wanted more cash. Finally, they traded him to Seattle in 1988 but he never amounted to much in the NFL. These days fans know him as a decent analyst and media personality. But his football record was disappointing (via Pro Football History).
