Had to be Roger Staubach. Great leader (obviously), excellant runner, strong arm. Didnt join the Cowboys till he was about 27 but had an illustrious HOF career. What kind of $$$ would this guy make today?

I love me some Roger. I consider him a top 5 QB of all-time, and he'd be in the discussion for GOAT if his career would not have gotten started so late.

Knowing all we do about him now, he would make a lot but if the circumstances were the same now as they were when he joined the Cowboys then who knows.

He wouldn't make anything because he is old

Dan Fouts would be my favorite player of all-time if the "t" and "s" switched places in his name.

Clay Matthews, a non-QB who played for the Oilers/Titans for like 22 yrs.

Favre is the worst veteran for his teasing about retirement every yr. He is playing like gangbusters this season but sucked in major ways with the Jets at the end of last season, he cost them 3-4 games singlehandedly with his too-slow passes & INTs.

Perhaps I'm the one that is mistaken, but given this thread was started on Veterans Day and the OP talked about Roger Staubach who served out his commitment to the Navy before joining the Cowboys, I suspect this thread was intended to discuss who the best player was in the NFL who also served in the military.

I might be forgetting someone, but I have a hard time seeing how anyone could argue against Roger Staubach being the best military veteran to ever play in the NFL.

Bob Kalsu and Pat Tillman. Both sacrificed their lives in combat.
