Now that we've learned the Colts will be officially unplugging the Peyton Manning era in Indianapolis, it's time to start imagining new color schemes. How will Peyton look in the burgandy and gold of the Redskins? The aqua and orange of the Dolphins? The green and white of the Jets? But wherever he goes and whatever he wears, it will seem like a bad PhotoShop joke.
In most cases, when a franchise cornerstone finds a new home rather than retiring -- notably with Willie Mays (Mets), Patrick Ewing (Sonics/Magic) and Johnny Unitas (Chargers) -- the ending is a dud rather than a bang. But sometimes it works out. Raymond Bourque left the Bruins after 21 seasons and won a Stanley Cup with the Avalanche. Joe Montana guided the Chiefs to their only appearance in the AFC championship game.
Here are 19 Hall of Fame athletes, and one that's a lock for induction once he's eligible, who finished their careers in uniforms that just didn't look quite right on them. (Michael Jordan as a Wizard and Guy Lafleur as a Ranger and Nordique aren't on this list because they actually retired for a few seasons before deciding to make a comeback. And no Brett Favre as a Jet or Viking just because.)
