8. Al Del Greco (1984-87)

The Green Bay Packers made a change at kicker in the middle of the 1984 season, signing former Auburn kicker Al Del Greco, a rookie who was undrafted that spring.

Del Greco stabilized the field-goal kicking for the Pack, hitting 9-of-12 over the final nine games of the season as the Pack bounced back from a 1-6 start to win seven of its final nine games, just missing a playoff berth.

Del Greco remained with the Packers for parts of the next three seasons, including hitting 19-of-26 field goals in 1985 before slumping to 17-for-27 in 1986.

After missing five of his first 10 attempts in 1987, Del Greco was released in early November.

In his time in Green Bay, Del Greco connected on 50-of-75 field goal attempts and all but two of his 114 PAT tries.

But his NFL journey was far from over. Del Greco caught on with the St. Louis Cardinals late in the 1987 season and spent three more years with the franchise after it moved to Phoenix.

In 1991, he signed with the Houston Oilers and kicked for them through their move to Tennessee and their rebranding as the Titans before retiring after the 2000 season, following 17 years in the NFL.

He led the NFL with 36 field goals in 1998, but was never selected for a Pro Bowl.

His 50 field goals are eighth-most in franchise history. His 66.7 percent career success rate is fifth among Packer kickers with at least 75 attempts.
