Bruins

Players Who Played w/ Both Sides of a Rivalry

Recommended Posts

Rod Woodson, Mike Wallace, James Harrison, and Jacoby Jones all played for both the Ravens and Steelers. 

 

Although I think all parties have basically forgotten/blocked out Jacoby’s time with the Steelers as if it never happened.

And the Patriots and Bengals, just to add common rivals for both of those teams.

Both Mo Johnston and Kenny Miller played for Celtic and Rangers, a really big deal in the bigoted world of Glasgow football. And Dennis Law, one of Scotland’s greatest players, played for both Man Utd and Man City.

There's a lot of others that have moved between those two teams, or the Saints and Panthers , but other than Sam Mills (already mentioned) none were that significant.
