Football fans today best know Cris Collinsworth for his talents in the broadcast booth, but back in the '80s, the former Bengals star was regularly going vertical for Cincinnati, serving as an integral part of the team's high-scoring offense. Standing at 6'5", mismatches were common for Collinsworth due to both his size and speed. Unfortunately, a bad ankle injury would severely limit his career.
Collinsworth made a sizeable impact for Cincinnati during his years in the league, but it's too bad that he was only given eight seasons to do so.
