He's wearing what?

General Published on : 10/17/2003

Bruce Smith of the Washington Redskins travels to Buffalo to take on the Bills Sunday. The game marks the first return visit for the defensive end to the place where he spent the major portion of his career.

Smith, now in his 19th NFL season, is nearing the all-time sack record as he trails Reggie White's career total by a mere 1.5 sacks.

For many in Ralph Wilson Stadium, it will be a strange feeling seeing Smith as #78 in burgundy and not in the traditional blue and red of their beloved Bills.

Today, we take a look at some of the Hall of Fame members who finished their storied careers wearing the jersey of a team other than with which they made their most significant impact on the gridiron.
