That 'C' on a player's jersey indicates the player is one of the captains of the team. Almost always in the NFL, a team's starting quarterback is one of the captains of the team.

Which University of Florida quarterbacks have been successful in the NFL?

Through the 2008 season, 11 Florida QBs have played in the NFL: Kerwin Bell, Rex Grossman, Bob Hewko, Doug Johnson, Eric Kresser, Shane Matthews, Jesse Palmer, John Reaves, Kay Stephenson, Danny Wuerffel, and Steve Spurrier. Not exactly household names but success is in the eye of the beholder. Any player that makes an NFL roster is a success regardless of how their career goes. None of the QBs listed above had great success in the NFL. Rex Grossman was the QB of the Bears that made Super Bowl XLI. Jesse Palmer is more notable for being on 'The Bachelor' than his NFL career. Steve Spurrier had a 10 year career in the NFL but most of it was as a punter and bombed in his two seasons as head coach of the Washington Redskins.
