Foreign-born players have competed in the NFL since the 1920s. Although less than three percent of the players on team rosters in 2017 were born on foreign soil, the impact of international players is undeniable.

In 2018 the Pro Football Hall of Fame had nine foreign-born players as members, including New Orleans Saints legend Morten Andersen. The Danish kicker played an astounding 25 seasons and finished his career with the most points in league history. Canada, Germany, and Jamaica have had the most players represented on NFL teams.

Here is a list of the greatest foreign-born NFL players.
