An email motivated this query.
Name the only three players to debut in 1950 or later and start games for seven different teams.

I assume you mean position players...
Gus Ferrotte could be another but I don't think he ever started for the Rams last year?
I'd also be shocked if there weren't a journeyman punter, kicker, or O lineman who didn't do this as well.
Okay, I think I have at least one: Steve Deberg.
Steve Bono also played for seven teams, but I don't know if he started for all of them.
A couple guys I thought might be on the list but aren't: Dave Krieg and Vinny Testaverde. I think they're both at 6.
Chris Chandler as well? He played for enough teams but I don't know if he started for all of them.
I'm not sure if Chandler ever started for the Rams (I don't think he did in '04 but maybe in '94 when they were in LA). I'm pretty sure he started everywhere else.
I'm guessing this trivia question was posed because Ferrotte might soon see a start in St. Louis?
Chandler is one.
The other two are defensive players. One a lineman, the other a DB.
This punter doesn’t qualify by that criteria, but still could be mentioned, Sean Landeta punted for five different NFL teams, six pro teams (the Philadelphia Stars) and had two different stints with three NFL teams – the Giants, Eagles and Rams. He also punted for both the LA and St. Louis Rams. After starting his NFL career with the NY Giants, he would change teams 7 times before finishing up with the Giants.
How is the NCAA poll algorithm working so far?
The defensive lineman is Ted Washington (San Francisco, Denver, Buffalo, Chicago, New England, Oakland, and Cleveland). Steve Beuerline started for 7 team names (both the Phoenix and Arizona Cardinals). Chester McGlockton made his way all the way around the current AFC West.
Now, Steve DeBerg started for 6 teams (SF,Den, TB,KC,MIA,ATL), one of which 3 seperate stints (TB), not to mention being drafted by Dallas....
Am I correct that DeBerg was benched in favor of Joe Montana (at two different teams), John Elway, Steve Young & Dan Marino? Wow.....
Here’s another example. Eddie Murray kicked for seven teams. Detroit, Tampa Bay, Kansas City, Dallas (twice), Philadelphia, Washington (twice) and Minnesota.
Andre Rison for the Colts, Falcons, Browns, Jaguars, Packers, Chiefs, Raiders
