There are thousands of professional athletes participating in major sports all across the country right now. So it's impossible to keep track of every single one of them. As a result, every now and then a former sports star slips off the national radar and gets so lost in the shuffle that we completely forget about him or her. So there are a whole lot of sports stars out there who we didn't even know were still playing. To see some of them, go check out the list that Bleacher Report put together over here. We had no idea that some of these athletes were around anymore.
