Tennessee: Reggie White
It’s a little easy to overlook the Volunteer State as an NFL hotbed, but there’s no overlooking Reggie White, the Minister of Defense. He spent 16 seasons as one of the most ferocious pass rushers the NFL has ever seen, earning spots on both the 1980s and 1990s All-Decade Teams.
White actually began his career by playing two seasons in the USL. When the league collapsed, he joined the Eagles and later settled in with the Packers. When all was said and done, White went to the Pro Bowl 13 times and was NFL Defensive Player of the Year twice. He also ranks second all-time in sacks and surely would be first if not for his two seasons in the USL.
