NFL one-season wonders

Yardbarker Logo By Jeff Mezydlo of Yardbarker | Slide 1 of 20: After starring at the University of Cincinnati, Cook was taken fifth overall by Paul Brown's Bengals in the 1969 draft. Right away, Cook was named the starter and AFL Rookie of the Year after throwing for 1,854 yards with 15 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. He also averaged 9.4 yards per attempt that season, but shoulder and even biceps issues limited the late Cook to just one more game in his career.
