Football and the holiday season seem to go hand in hand, so it only makes sense to think of some holiday themed football names. Well, luckily for you I already did the research, and here are the top five holiday themed football names.
Justin Snow - I tried to somehow include the rapper Snow, but I couldn't think of other rappers with holiday themed names. Besides, as classic as that song Informer is, I still have no idea what the heck he is saying. Anyway, Justin Snow is a tight end for the Indianapolis Colts, but has yet to catch a pass in his NFL career, but I'm sure he is an amazing blocking tight end. Oh, and you're welcome for getting that Informer song stuck in your head. If you know any of the words, please let me know!
Corey Ivy - Ivy was a pretty decent cornerback in his day, a day that stretched from 2001 to 2009. Ivy spent time with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, St. Louis Rams, Baltimore Ravens, and Pittsburgh Steelers. Ivy finished his career with three interceptions and five forced fumbles.
Shawne Merriman - His name was a bit of a stretch, but I'm going with it. Merriman seems to be past his prime now, which was spent with the San Diego Chargers from 2005 to 2007. During those three years, Merriman racked up 39.5 sacks. Now a member of the Buffalo Bills although he is out on Injured-Reserve as of October 25, 2011, Merriman has 44.5 sacks in his career to go along with eight forced fumbles. Hopefully his nickname of "Lights Out" won't affect your holiday decorations!
Jared Clauss - So maybe he didn't have a stellar NFL career, but his last name is Clauss which easily gets him in this article. Clauss played two years for the Tennessee Titans as a defensive tackle and racked up 17 tackles. He also had a half sack in 2005, which doesn't sound very Santa like, but it's better than nothing!
Johnny Jolly - A great holiday name, Jolly played four seasons with the Green Bay Packers from 2006 to 2009 as a defensive tackle. In those four years, Jolly amassed 78 tackles and two sacks to go along with four fumble recoveries.
