Like most fans I root for laundry.  But I also have a few players I genuinely like and want to see do well even though they aren't on my team.  Here is my list what is yours?

Shaquem Griffin
Jimmy G
Chris Long
Adam V
Kapernick
Drew Brees
Josh McCown

Most of the ones I think of off the top of my head,are retired,or former Dolphins... Mostly not the superstar guy's...K.Byars,T.Rathman,B. Muster,Hines Ward,M.Alstott...Then super stars like Barry Sanders,Walter Payton

I like watching/sort of root for Aaron Rodgers...

When you say "laundry," does college laundry count? I tend to cheer for all AZ Wildcats when they get to the NFL, as long as they aren't facing my 49ers. Aside from Cat alums, I like Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tyler Lockett, Von Miller, CJ Moseley, David Johnson...lots of guys I like out there.

I'm also rooting for a local kid,born here,played college ball here,LB Dylan Cole Linebacker for the Texans.Undersized,and undrafted free agent,that made an impact with the team last year.

I stopped rooting for D.G. Beckham in college...Physical freak,with little work ethic...SMH

Clay Harbor is still kicking around the league... Undecided

I don't know if I am phasing out of this or if the younger guys just aren't as captivating. There are a bunch of guys whose talents I respect but I'm not going out of my way to follow them.

Current players

Aaron Rodgers
Jameis Winston *Tamp is my second team so maybe not fair
Blake Bortles (Local Kid)
Ha Ha Clinton-Dix (Local kid)
Paxton Lynch (Local kid)
Shaquem Griffin (Local kid)

There's been a lot throughout the years though.  Brett Favre, Bruce Smith, and Mark Gastineau to name a few.

Former players:

Roger Staubach
Warren Moon

Mike Webster
Howie Long
Doug Pederson
Joe Pendelton (YEAH YEAH I know it's a movie but still)
Mark Bavaro

Current players:
Rashard Matthews
Anthony Fasano (assuming they haven't retired)
TEs and linemen who graduated from Notre Dame (since they're my favorite college team I like seeing them go pro and do well if that still counts)
