    Rick Parros!! He started all 16 games his rookie year and followed up with 17 more starts the following 5 years and his yardage is comparable to. I don’t know him and would never have guessed this as I was born 1980 but with intense research the past 10 minutes, I got it.

    Make the CPs rain down on me!

    For example Garrett Bolles led the team in holding penalties in 2018.

    It can be considered key when you consider how it affect the team!
    I would not call this a negative category. But I think I will add one more clue....

    He played in the 80s.

    Following on the theme regarding players who had better rookie seasons....

    This player played 4 seasons with Denver and then another couple on another NFL team.

    He led The Broncos in a key category in his rookie season, but that was over 1/2 of his production for his entire 6 seasons. Who is he?

    Updated.....he also played for Seattle.

    Sorry Sam. Torrain did not have a good rookie season. But he was someone I was pulling for.

    I sometimes make up a quiz based on my own minor research. When that happens, sometimes more than one answer fit quite well. So, instead of saying "incorrect", I admit that they are good answers. Technically some are not perfect, but to my way of thinking, if a player played on one other team and not two, it really makes little difference. So, the bottom line is, I have another "flawed' quiz.

    Then again, this is in fun, and I reward those who make good guesses.

    Not Clinton, but a good try. Portis had a successful career after his rookie season. But he was darn good as a rook!!:thumb:

    Just out of curiosity and not sarcasm but what would he have led the team in? I don’t recall him ever getting much playing time.

    Shiz….this isn't the answer I got, but I am rewarding points based on the fact that Gary's best year was as a rookie, and his 1st year rushing totals were more than half of his career total. Technically speaking, and this is very technical, he was part of 3, not 2 NFL teams, but one was only as part of an offseason stint. You get the points sir, but I am still looking for another name.

    Having said that, and based on the responses we are getting, it brings back fabulous memories of a team that could basically put anyone in the backfield and have a solid rushing season. That is the kind of Oline we would love to have back, and for the long term!
    I definitely thought I had this one! Thanks!
    Who was his “3rd” team?

    He had over half of his career TD’s with the Redskins though.

    Can said the rookie stat accounted for over half of their career stats.

    And only 6 seasons.
