Joe Namath's rookie contract was the largest in professional football history. Not among rookies, among everyone.

His knees were so messed up that the military gave him deferred service. He used to have to get them drained during halftime so he could finish games.
Despite this, Namath made the pro bowl in his 1965, his first season, and was named Rookie of the Year. He was a first-team All Pro QB in 1967, 1968, and 1969, earning AFL MVP in the latter two seasons.

(Side note: in 1969 the AP named him 2nd-team All Pro *AND* league MVP.)
Shortly after, injuries began to mount. He missed 9 games in 1970 and 10 games in 1971 before playing 13 out of 14 games in 1972 and again being named first-team All Pro, this time of the post-merger league.

Missed 8 more games in 1973 before winning Comeback PotY in 1974.
