I also like those. Others that I remember are Michael Jackson (one LB for the Seahawks, the other WR for the Browns and Ravens) and the two Robert Jackson who were teammates with the Browns in the late 70s-early 90s (G Robert E. and LB Robert L.).

There were the two Gene Washingtons -- both WRs playing at the same time, if they haven't been mentioned yet.

Another confusing situation -- Neill Armstrong, football coach/player, and Neil Armstrong astronaut.

I truly believe the press voting for the All-Pro teams in 1969 got the Gene Washingtons' confused ...

Gene Washington for the Vikings had an excellent season and was rightfully All-Pro with 821 yrds 10 TDs counting postseason and 21 yrds per catch.

Gene Washington of the 49ers was also named All-Pro with 711 yrds only 3 TDs and 14 yrds per catch ... did not deserve it ...

Nowadays there are two guards/centers named Connor McGovern, one with the Jets, the other with the Cowboys. I think they are not related (I thought they were cousins):

Watching today's Jets-Falcons game at London I watched both Michael Carters playing for the Jets (one running back and one cornerback). The surprising thing is that both were drafted after each other.
