(Bruce Matthews) ECIP galley (Bruce Matthews is one of the greatest offensive linemen to ever play in the National Football League. Matthews spent his entire career with the Oilers franchise, which relocated after the 1996 season and became the Tennessee Titans. Matthews retired after the 2001 season having played more games (296) than any NFL player, excluding kickers and punters (since surpassed by Brett Favre; Matthews still holds the record for linemen), and played in more seasons (19) than any offensive lineman. He never missed a game because of injury (the 1987 season was shortened due to a player strike), and started 229 consecutive games. Today he serves as chair or co-chair of Special Olympics and Fellowship of Christian Athletes golf tournaments, hosts a youth football camp, and volunteers for charitable organizations.)
