The 25 Best Names In The NFL

What's in a name?

Posted on

The NFL season begins Thursday, September 4th in Seattle, Washington. I, and many other Americans, are ecstatic about pro football being back! Woop!

But let's take a look at the 25 best and most interesting player names currently on NFL rosters! Sports tend to give us some of the best names ever.

4. Darren Sproles (RB, Eagles) / Via Black Sports Online

Now hear me out.

Darren Sproles' name may not be that interesting sounding, but say his name slowly... now say it a bit faster. Isn't it just one of the better sounding names in football? He was perfect when he was a Charger because he and his name (to me) represented a lightning bolt!

Sppprrrroooooollleeeesssss! Yes!

6. Bjoern Werner (OLB, Colts) / Via Colts Authority

Another villianious sounding name is Bjoern Werner (it's Bjoern per but Bjorn per other sites). Still a spectacular name for a football player.

Which "bad" guy would you rather face? Werner or Posluszny?
