8. Rich Gannon (QB Oakland Raiders 1999)
The Oakland Raiders didn’t make many great decisions during Al Davis’ last 20 years. But one of the positive moves they made was the sign former Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Rich Gannon in 1999. Gannon spent most of his career as a backup prior to signing with the Raiders, but quickly became a consistent, All-Pro starter and helped guide the Raiders to the Super Bowl in 2001. Gannon played 4 full seasons (and parts of 2 more) with the Raiders. He threw for more than 17,000 yards in Oakland, and led the league in passing in 2002.
