Cleveland Browns

Wynn played for the Browns in 2000, seeing action in seven games, including one start – a 48–0 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.[1] With the Browns, Wynn completed 22 of 54 (40.7%) passes for 167 yards, no touchdowns, one interception, and a passer rating of 41.2.

Amsterdam Admirals

Minnesota Vikings

Wynn was a third string backup to Daunte Culpepper and Todd Bouman in the 2001 and 2002 seasons and played in the last three games of the 2001 season, starting two of them because of season-ending injuries to both Culpepper and Bouman. In the Vikings’ next-to-last regular-season game against the Green Bay Packers on December 30, 2001, Wynn threw the only touchdown pass of his NFL career, a 47-yard strike to tight end Byron Chamberlain.

BC Lions

After failing to move beyond third string with the Vikings, Wynn made his way north to Canada to play for the BC Lions, completing 67 of 99 passes for 894 yards, 6 touchdowns, and one interception. He also rushed for 2 touchdowns and 145 yards on 36 attempts.[2]

Winnipeg Blue Bombers

Texas State Bobcats football statistical leaders

The Texas State Bobcats football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the Texas State Bobcats football program in various categories, including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Bobcats represent Texas State University in the NCAA's Sun Belt Conference.

Although Texas State began competing in intercollegiate football in 1904, the school's official record book considers the "modern era" to have begun in 1950. Records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent, and they are generally not included in these lists.

These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

Since 1950, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.

The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.These lists are updated through the end of the 2016 season.
