            He only played in 2 games as a Bronco. How about Ken Karcher?

                      WINNER!

                      Ken Karcher went undrafted by NFL teams, and bounced around training camps before going to the Denver Broncos, where he played for the 1987 and 88 seasons. He played in a total of four games; three of those games came when he played as a replacement player while many other NFL players were on strike. The Broncos retained him for the rest of the year, and Karcher backed up John Elway while the team played in Super Bowl XXII. Karcher continued to play for the Broncos for one additional season, in 1988.

                      Despite severely limited duty Ken Karcher held at least 2 Broncos franchise records in front of more famous Broncos quarterbacks like Peyton Manning and John Elway, including:

                      Completions: rookie game (25 on 1987-10-18 @KAN )
                      Pass Yds/Game: rookie season (209.3 in 1987)



                      (not many action pics of him)
