The Aug. 5 enshrinement of the 2023 class will bring the membership of the Pro Football Hall of Fame to 371 inductees, an exclusive club honoring the best of the best. But there's another group of NFL players that isn't quite as prestigious, and its membership doesn't come with bronze busts or gold jackets.
According to Pro Football Reference, 1,432 men have appeared in exactly one career NFL game.
For some, playing even one game is considered an unlikely success story. For others in the club, there are traces of disappointment. Whatever the circumstances, this is an undeniably exclusive group.
