Black NFL Quarterbacks and Other African-American Football Players.

Now, black football players in the NFL played and excelled in other positions too. Want to see their shirtless pics? Of course you do. Hehe. Let’s check them out starting with the muscled, tattooed, sexy, and beautiful Devin Thomas, wide receiver for the Detroit Lions. Does he have the best washboard abs in the NFL or what?


Next up is Adrian Peterson, running back for the Minnesota Vikings.


Who wants to play ball with New York Jets wide receiver Braylon Edwards? He’s looking fab, no?


Wide receiver Chad Ochocinco who last played for the New England Patriots appears to be more interested in playing the slot machine than football. Can’t say we blame him. After all, isn’t going to Vegas — or Dancing With the Stars — is what retirement is all about?
