Former National Football League offensive lineman Ephraim Salaam returned to television via the hit television reality show The Amazing Race. Salaam partnered with fellow NFL alumnus Chester Pitts to compete in the show's 23rd season which just ended last month.

You can read about Salaam's exploits on The Amazing Race here.

Salaam was originally drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the 7th round of the 1998 NFL Draft after starring in football and basketball at San Diego State University. He ended up starting for the Falcons against the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl in his rookie season. He went on to a 13 year NFL career.

In 2013 he was interviewed by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the U.S. Department of State as part of an event honoring Muslim athletes. Also in 2013 Salaam began work as an analyst for Fox Sports 1.

Australian boxer become just that type of hero when he rose from worldwide obscurity to shock World Boxing Association super welterweight champion Sugar Shane Mosley last month, with a Sixth Round Technical Knockout (TKO). The 42-year-old Mundine has made plenty of headlines in his home country of Australia during his two-sport career. But the world had never really heard his name until now.

Remember the speedy Az-zahir Hakim of the St. Louis Rams? He was a part of what was known as the National Football League's "Greatest Show On Turf." Well now his younger brother Saalim is following in his footsteps as a professional football player. He went to Palomar college, but went undrafted before bouncing around the league. Last month he finally was picked up by an NFL team during the regular season and he saw his first live action.
