The One-Team Quarterbacks In The All-Time Top 50


With the way professional football is these days, it is very hard to imagine there being too many one team quarterbacks anymore. Here we are going to look at the All-Time Top 50 quarterbacks (through the 2008 season), in terms of passing yardage gained, and see who on the list spent their entire careers with one team.

So, how many one-team quarterbacks in the Top 50 played their whole career with just team? The answer is 13.

Here they are including where they come in on the list and when they played:

2. Dan Marino – Dolphins (1983-99)
3. John Elway – Broncos (1983-98)
7. Peyton Manning – Colts (1998-09) *active
9. Dan Fouts – Chargers (1973-87)
15. Jim Kelly – Bills (1986-96)
20. Phil Simms – Giants (1979-93)

42. Terry Bradshaw – Steelers (1970-83)
49. Steve Grogan – Patriots (1975-90)
50. Tom Brady – Patriots (2000-09) *active

This begs the question though, which quarterback in the All-Time Top 50 Career Passing Yards list has played for the most teams?

Two players tie for this “honor”, both having played for seven different teams:

6. Vinny Testaverde (1987-07)
39. Chris Chandler (1988-04)
