    Just so there's no confusion, American football will not an Olympic sport in 2016. The list of sports for Rio is already set, and it does not include American football. Here's the list: http://www.olympic.org/sports

    I would say:

    QB - Brady (P. Manning, sub)

    RB - Lynch (R. Bush, sub)

    TE - Gronkowski , etc, etc.
