Kick returns, deep passes, incredible rushing plays. We don’t really care how they did it; what we’ve got here are the 10 most electric players in NFL history. These guys aren’t just fast; they’re the fastest. They aren’t just exciting; they’re the most exciting players in the history of the game. With the ball in their hands, the end zone is always the limit. We’ve got quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and even cornerbacks. Of course, we couldn’t include all of the great players the NFL has seen over the years, and we’ve only chosen ones here who make you hold your breath whenever they hold the ball, but buckle up, because these guys are taking you for a ride.
10. Michael Vick
Yeah, we know there’s a lot of controversy that’s followed Mike Vick over the years. Arrested for dog fighting during his prime years in Atlanta (and after signing an $100 million dollar contract extension, some of which he was forced to pay back), Vick spent two years in prison before returning to the NFL, never regaining his pre-conviction form. That pre-conviction form was absolutely spectacular though, and for the first six years of his career, Vick was an incredibly dynamic on the field performer who ushered in a new era of mobile quarterback in the NFL, a type of player capable of making highlight reel plays from behind center. While he never fully realized his potential as a passer in the NFL, and his career will forever be marred by the truly reprehensible acts he committed, Vick remains one of the most unique and intriguing players the NFL has ever seen.
