2K Sports Reveals Line-up for All-Pro Football 2K8

Football gamers breathed a collective sigh of melancholy in late 2004 when it was revealed that EA's Madden series had been given exclusive rights to NFL franchises. The landmark 5-year deal effectively shut out rival publishers and developers, such as Take-Two's 2K Sports line, from creating NFL-based video games. But, a recent announcement shows that 2K Sports has managed to find a way around the licensing agreement by focusing on past players instead of present ones. Entitled All-Pro Football 2K8, the game will feature nearly every single retired NFL great to ever wear a football uniform. The game is scheduled to be released on both Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles this summer. "With All-Pro Football 2K8, we're bringing the greatest players in football history back to the game," said Greg Thomas, President of 2K Sports' Visual Concepts. "Imagine an offense featuring John Elway, Thurman Thomas and Jerry Rice going against a defense led by Ronnie Lott, Mike Singletary and Reggie White. By highlighting the signature abilities of the game's greatest legends, we have created a highly customizable and unique football experience tailored for the football fan." The game's website presents the names of all of the confirmed players in an interactive flash movie, but Joystiq has taken the liberty of compiling and publishing the list in a text format that's far easier on the eyes. Here is the known list of players and their respective positions, which numbers in excess of 200 so far: Bill Curry C Dermontti Dawson C Dwight StephensonC Jim Otto C Mick Tingelhoff C Albert Lewis CB Lem Barney CB Lester Hayes CB Mel Renfro CB Mike Haynes CB NightTrain Lane CB Roger Wehrli CB Terry McDaniel CB Tom Brookshier CB Willie Brown CB Chris Doleman DE Clyde Simmons DE Deacon Jones DE Dexter Manley DE Elvin Bethea DE Gino Marchetti DE Harvey Martin DE Jim Marshall DE Lee Roy Selmon DE Leonard Marshall DE Leslie O'Neal DE Reggie White DE Rulon Jones DE Tony Tolbert DE TooTall Jones DE Art Donovan DT Bob Lilly DT Dan Hampton DT Dan Saleaumua DT Dave Butz DT Greg Kragen DT Jerome Brown DT Keith Millard DT Leon Lett DT Marty Lyons DT Mike Golic DT Randy White DT William Perry DT Daryl Johnston FB Ickey Woods FB Merril Hoge FB Tom Rathman FB Cliff Harris FS Deron Cherry FS Eric Turner FS Eugene Robinson FS Leroy Butler FS Nolan Cromwell FS Ronnie Lott FS Solomon Wilcots FS Bill Fralic G Guy Mcintyre G Jesse Sapolu G Jim Langer G Larry Little G Randall Mcdaniel G Randy Cross G Russ Grimm G Stan Jones G Steve Wisniewski G Tom Mack G Abner Haynes HB Barry Foster HB Barry Sanders HB Billy Sims HB Charley Trippi HB Chris Warren HB Christian Okoye HB Chuck Foreman HB Chuck Muncie HB Curt Warner HB Dalton Hilliard HB Dave Meggett HB Earl Campbell HB Emmitt Smith HB Eric Bieniemy HB Floyd Little HB Freeman McNeil HB Gale Sayers HB Greg Bell HB Hugh McElhenny HB Joe Perry HB Lenny Moore HB Leroy Kelly HB Marcus Allen HB Matt Snell HB Mike Rozier HB Natrone Means HB O.J.
