Kordell Stewart didn’t earn the nickname “Slash” because he could play guitar for a legendary rock band. Rather, it was because Stewart became the most versatile offensive threat the NFL had ever seen in the 1990’s, playing at least four different positions — quarterback, running back, wide receiver, and kick returner — for the Pittsburgh Steelers. In 2001, as the starting quarterback, Stewart led the Steelers to a 13–3 regular-season record, en route to an AFC Championship game appearance (which they lost to the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots).
Since retiring, Stewart has tried his hand at working in the media, making appearances on ESPN’s College Football Live, NFL Live, and Mike and Mike In the Morning. He also had a stint as a co-host on an Atlanta radio sports talk show.
The 11th pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, quarterback Daunte Culpepper set a new record in 2004, for the most total yardage produced by a quarterback in a single season (5,123 yards). During a seven-season tenure with the Vikings, he threw for 20,162 yards and 135 touchdowns. Culpepper achieved a passer rating above 96 and earned Pro Bowl nods for the 2000, 2003 and 2004 seasons. But in 2005, he suffered a severe knee injury, and was never the same player after that.
He played for three more teams, as well as a brief stint in the UFL, before retiring. Culpepper popped up in the news recently, after SunTrust Bank filed a foreclosure lawsuit on his 9,867-foot home in Broward County, Florida.
