Hey D'Anton- not sure if you are interested mainly in CrossFit for keeping fit or competing. There are quite a few former football players who have made a successful transition from their football careers to competing at the highest level of CrossFit.

Just off the top of my head, there's Scott Panchik and Tommy Hackenbruck.

Here's an article on Dana Stubblefield:

and Sean Payton bring CrossFit to the Saints training camp:
