Trey Teague – Signed by the Bills in 2002
The full name of this player was Fred Everette Teague III. Trey must have been much easier for everyone.
Teague played college football at Tennessee, where he served as one of the linemen protecting future great Peyton Manning. Trey’s pro career got off to a great start in 1999, after he was a seventh-round pick of the Denver Broncos. Teague saw some playing time that season, and his team went on to win the Super Bowl. The offensive lineman started all 16 games for the Broncos in 2001, and then became a free agent.
The Bills moved quickly to sign him, and Teague moved quickly into the starting lineup. Buffalo decided he’d be a better fit at center, and that’s where he spent his four years as a Bill. He played 60 games with Buffalo, and was a starter in every one.
From there, Teague signed with the New York Jets, but never played a game there. He retired from the NFL in 2007.
Let’s go way back to his college days.
