Default British Nfl players?

Hi guys, not sure if this has been done before but are there any British players currently playing in the NFL? I'm playing madden 10 and created a franchise for the career bit called the Welsh Swans (I'm from Swansea) and I wanna sign any british NFL players to my team. I'm new to NFL and pretty much learnin bout it from madden 10 which I bought last week but enjoyin it so far!

Rhys Lloyd is the only true Brit in the NFL. He is the kickoff specialist for Carolina.

Osi Umenyiora of the NY Giants was born in London and moved to America as a child.

Of course. Forgot about Tynes. He better not miss any more FGs though or Coughlin will be giving him the boot himself. Is he LT3 now?

Dominique Foxworth was born in Oxford but like Osi emigrated at a very young age.

Tynes and Lloyd it is with a special blast from the past mention to John Smith and Mick Luckhurst.

Off topic somewhat...

My father swears that in early-mid 1960's some NFL scouts came over to the UK looking for people to kick in the NFL. Apparently they were looking to take the top 3 prospects back to the US, and a local football player from our village finished 4th in the trials.

I have always had my doubts about the story, but my fathers is adamant that it is true. If it is, I wonder what happened to the 3 players... was John Smith the first Brit to kick in NFL?

Pete "too tall" Fields (Farnham Knights) had trials with Green bay this year, not sure if he made the cut or not. http://www.mlntherawfeed.com/indepen...eman-work.html

Jason Brisbane (London Blitz) signed as a free agent to San Diego Chargers http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/players/playerpage/1626005

John was over there with a "soccer" team, the first time he saw a NFL game he was in it.

...and he is from Oxford! (shire)

Crazy I used to play football with Jason Brisbane on the Blitz team, didn't realise he had made the step up to NFL!
