    WINNER!

    Charley Lane Johnson (born November 22, 1938) is a former American football quarterback and retired professor of chemical engineering. He played in the National Football League (NFL) for 15 years with three teams: the St. Louis Cardinals, Houston Oilers, and Denver Broncos.

    He ended his career with a four-year stint in Denver. He started 9 games for the Broncos in 1972, and all 14 games for the 7–5–2 squad in 1973, the first winning season for the team. In 1974, his 14th season, he led the league for the first time in yards per attempt with 8.1. He began his final year with a 90-yard touchdown pass to Rick Upchurch against the Kansas City Chiefs, the only 90+ yard pass that decade by a Bronco. He is a member of the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame.

      Ok I misinterpreted what you meant when you said actually. I thought you were correcting someone on the topic. I now realize you are just adding fuel to the thought of we should blame Fisher for suading Shanny.

      • Question:

        This big man primarily played basketball until college days, but moved on to play football for the first time, just 2 years before being drafted by an NFL team. Who is he?

            Do you mean Julius Thomas? A good answer, but not the answer I had....but there's more to it.)

            But I will stress, the player I am looking for was new to the game, 2 years prior to NFL selection.

                Hey, I got one right!! OK listen, I am rewarding you, because JT was a basketball player, and only got into college football the year before he got drafted.

                But I am looking for a BIGGER dude, whose NFL position is not classified as "skilled".

                        Stay the course. I did not know a lot about this player until I researched a little. I want to give a clue, but lets see if anyone gets it this evening.

                        • I guess I can thrown in... Cedric Lang was signed by the broncos to a futures contract last year. He was a college B.B. player that converted to TE and then olineman for the broncos ( a signed #70 ) Don’t even know if he is on the roster..


                          Edit... a little reasesrch shows he is a Viking now.. at Oline.

                              Not the answer I have, but need to verify if he played football at any point of his youth. My assumption is that he did, but I could be wrong.
