Clayton Weishuhn – New England Patriots
Weishuhn had a two year career in the NFL, and he still holds the Patriots’ single-season record for tackles with 229 in 1983. His 229-tackle campaign was in his second season, but it was the last full season he’d play. He suffered a knee injury in Week 1 of the 1984 season which cost Weishuhn his third year. The knee problems persisted and he ended up missing the 1985 season as well. After suffering also groin and hamstring injuries, this limited him to just 4 games in the 1986 season, which was his last in the league.
