Ron Jaworski is so remembered as a Philadelphia Eagle that people forget he had four seasons with the Los Angeles Rams before going east and then had brief stints with the Miami Dolphins and Kansas City Chiefs afterwards.

Hakeem Olajuwon played his final NBA season in 2001-02 with the Toronto Raptors.

Ryne Sandberg's rookie season in 1981 was with the Phillies. He was traded to the Cubs ahead of the 1982 season.

Phil Esposito was gained fame with the Bruins and went on to the Rangers, but played several NHL seasons with the Blackhawks before going to Boston. His younger brother Tony Esposito became a legend with the Blackhawks and is easy to mistake a one team player, but he was briefly with the Canadiens before going to Chicago.

Dr. J played a game with the Hawks too, and the ABA filed an injunction against the NBA saying that he had a contract with the Squires.

For the soccer fans, Franz Beckenbauer became a legend with Bayern Munich and the New York Cosmos, but finished up with Hamburg. Johan Cruyff gained fame with Ajax and Barcelona, then went to the NASL for several year, but ended his career with Ajax's arch rivals Feyenoord.

Before he was a Cub, Fergie was a Phil. One of the worse deals the Phillies ever made.

I saw both of their final TD receptions live.  Fun fact.

I've remembered all of these on this list but totally had zero clue about Cunningham on the Cowboys and Ravens.

Bobby Hull played less than 10 games with the Whalers. Then retired, and tried to come back two years later with the Rangers. He played preseason and then retired for good.

Martin Brodeur on the St Louis Blues

After Joe Ferguson played a full career with the Buffalo Bills, they let him go when they were at rock bottom. He then played six more seasons for Detroit, Tampa, and Indy and retired at 40.

Gary Carter is remembered as an Expo and then a Met. After leaving the latter team, he had single seasons for the Giants and Dodgers before going back to Montreal for one more year with the Expos before retiring.

Allen Iverson had a big career for the 76ers and then had a brief but productive stint with the Nuggets. He followed that with a season with the Pistons, a 3 game stint with the Grizzlies, and a final short run with the 76ers by which time he'd gone from someone who played near or at his prime in 2007-08 to serviceably in decline in 2008-09 to completely washed up in 2009-10. He had problems with alcohol and other off the court issues that took him down fast. He played his last NBA game at 34 when he conceivably had many years left had he been physically and mentally in shape.
