    I suppose, but it doesn't seem like many Japanese people are interested.  Hell, the only one to put in the effort was Noriaki.  I would imagine most Japanese people would be more interested in becoming baseball players, as far as US sports go.

    There is a harvester on the countryside who could probably start as a Blocking Back.

  • It would probably help if you played Rugby growing up and then started playing American Football at The College and University Level.

    There already have been a dozen Japanese born players in the NFL.

    Very unlikely to happen.

    It's possible. Noriaki Kinoshita was signed by the Falcons one preseason as a WR/kick returner.

    There's a Korean kicker on the Chargers.

    Why not? If Garo Yepremian can become not only an NFL player but one who revolutionized the game, anyone can.

    Only one I could find.  2008-1012.  Played for the Ravens, then in his last year started 13 games for the Panthers.  He's American of Japanese descent.
