Who Is the Shortest Quarterback to Ever Play in the NFL?
Eddie LeBaron is the shortest quarterback to ever play in the NFL Pro Bowl, according to the Hogs Haven website by Vox Media. The diminutive Lebaron stood just 5-foot-7, playing 11 seasons with the Redskins and Cowboys.
While he was often listed as 5 feet 9 inches tall during his playing days, the Korean War veteran has openly admitted to the inflated listing. He earned the nickname “The Little General” for his heroic military leadership, for which he was awarded a Bronze Star. Despite his size, LeBaron managed to garner four trips to the Pro Bowl, in 1955, 1957, 1958 and 1962. Though he did throw 29 more career interceptions than touchdowns, LeBaron was named one of the 80 Greatest Redskins of all time.
