Players who played in four different decades

Postby Halas Hall » Sun Nov 28, 2021 12:34 pm

Is George Blanda the only individual who played professional football in four different decades (40s, 50s. 60s, 70s)?

Thank you.

If Tom Brady had started one year earlier, 1999 instead of 2000, he would be in his fourth decade (90s, 00s, 10s, 20s).

Wikipedia lists John Carney as playing in 4 decades [1987-2010]. Since there wasn't a year zero many argue that we count decades wrong [as in the 80s should be 1981 to 1990] so then Brady would have 4 decades counting it that way but Carney would not. I just go along with what is normally considered a decade [as in 1980 to 1989].
