19. Gary Zimmerman

Gary Zimmerman was a member of the All-Time USFL Team and was a four-time Pro Bowler before his trade to the Denver Broncos where he immediately became the leader of the team's Offensive Line.  The Left Tackle arrived in 1993, and he put on a three-year run of Pro Bowl appearances from 1994 to 1996, the last of which saw him named a First Team All-Pro.  He was a large part of the Broncos first Super Bowl win in the 32nd contest and that leadership helped Denver in countless ways.  He would retire after that championship win.

Zimmerman was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2008, five years after he was chosen for the Broncos Ring of Fame.
