Football RuleI don't know when that was but the last person to play both offense and defense in the NFL was Chuck Bednarik (Philadelphia Eagles, 1949-62).

There was also William Perry in Super Bowl XX who played offense and defense but he only played offense for only 1 play.

Deion Sanders occasionally played both sides of the ball. He was a cornerback, returned punts,and was a third wide receiver when he played for the Cowboys.
