9. Donald Lee (2005-10)

The Green Bay Packers signed tight end Donald Lee in September 2005, three days after he had been released by the Miami Dolphins, and he wound up as the Packers’ starter at the tight end spot for three seasons.

Lee had 48 receptions for 575 yards and six touchdowns in 2007 and he was a backup at the position on Green Bay’s 2010 Super Bowl championship team.

In six years with the Packers, Lee caught 178 passes for 1,655 yards and 17 touchdowns before he was waived in March 2011 and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Originally a fifth-round draft pick by the Dolphins out of Mississippi State, Lee played two years in Miami before coming to Green Bay. He was released by the Eagles before the start of the 2011 season and signed with the Cincinnati Bengals, playing in nine games.

He re-signed with the Bengals in April 2012, but was released in September 2012 having not been on the active roster for the season’s first three games.
