Top 10 all-time players by Approximate Value for every team (from Pro-Football-Reference.com) [OC]


So, based on last day thread "Who is the greatest player in your teams history?", I was looking every team list of players by approximate value* on Pro-Football-Reference.com. Most fans had their franchise best player being the very highest player on that ranking. However we did had some surprises.

* How Pro-football Reference defines AV:

AV - approximate value. This is our attempt to put a single number on each player-season since 1960 so that we can (very approximately) compare across years and across positions. See this blog page for all the details.
