After Ryan Longwell's final season with the Packers back in 2005, who would have thought that Green Bay would find another longtime kicker who would cement themselves as one of the best? That's exactly what the Packers did when they drafted Mason Crosby in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL Draft.

Crosby went on to kick for 16 years in Green Bay, never making a single Pro Bowl or All pro team, surprisingly. Yet, he was good enough for the Packers to keep around for the long haul.

Now, don't get me wrong. Crosby had his fair share of issues. There were a couple of seasons where fans saw him fall flat on his face in key situations, or have all-out horrific games. They'd call for his job the following day, but the Packers stuck by him, and thank goodness they did. He would always find his way back, getting into his groove and went on his way making big kicks for this franchise.

Now 39 years old, Crosby awaits his next opportunity, if there are any in his future, at least. This might just be the end of the road for the longtime Packers great. He finished his Green Bay career first all-time in field goals made with 485; more than 200 over the number Longwell set when he retired.
