Jerry Rice  (1962 -   )
Nickname: "World"

 

Rice is widely considered to be the greatest wide receiver in NFL history.  He played for numerous teams through 1985-2005 including the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders, Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos. 

Rice was selected to the Pro Bowl 13 times, named All-Pro 12 times and was a 3 time Super Bowl Champion.  He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010 during the first year of eligibility.  He got the nickname “World” because there wasn’t a ball anywhere around him that he couldn’t get within his hands.
