Tommy Maddox was born September 2, 1971 in Shreveport, Louisiana and is a former football quarterback in the National Football League who most recently played for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Maddox played college football as quarterback at UCLA, where he was well-regarded, but was, in opinions of some, ill-advised in attempting to turn professional after his sophomore season. Drafted by the Denver Broncos in the first round of the 1992 NFL Draft, he spent several seasons in the NFL relegated to back-up duty on various teams. He was drafted by then Denver Broncos head coach Dan Reeves, a sign of the coach's troubled relationship with quarterback John Elway. Maddox also played for the Los Angeles Rams and the New York Giants before being released by the Atlanta Falcons during the 1997 preseason.
After being released from the NFL, Maddox was out of football for a period of time, selling insurance for his father in Houston, Texas. After being featured on NFL Films about where his career had gone since being drafted, he had the itch to play again, and joined the New Jersey Red Dogs of the Arena Football League for one season.
After his brief stint in the Arena Football League, Tommy Maddox was invited to try out for the Los Angeles Xtreme of the XFL. Maddox became the starting quarterback for LA in week 1, despite the team using its first pick in the XFL Draft on quarterback Scott Milanovich. Maddox made an impact in his time in the XFL and was named the XFL MVP in 2001. However Tommy Maddox's XFL glory would not last, as the league closed after its only season in 2001.
Maddox signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as a backup in 2001. Maddox became a dominant NFL quarterback in 2002 as he led the Steelers into the playoffs with a 10-5-1 record.
In 2003, Maddox had an average year statistically as the Steelers finished at a disappointing 6-10. After the 2003 season, the Steelers drafted a new quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, in the first round, to give the position some youth. Roethlisberger was given the starting job after Maddox was injured during a week 2 game against the Ravens, and responded by guiding the Steelers to 14 straight regular season wins and a trip to the AFC Championship game.
Maddox reassumed his starting QB role when Roethlisberger suffered a knee injury early in the 2005 season, but losses in a poor performance against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Baltimore Ravens sent him back to the bench, giving Charlie Batch the second-string spot. Following the Steelers' win in Super Bowl XL, Maddox was released from the team for salary cap reasons.
Tommy Maddox is one of three players (along with Bobby Singh and Ron Carpenter) to hold both a Super Bowl ring and XFL championship ring. However, Maddox was the only Steelers player not to attend the ceremony at the White House honoring their Super Bowl championship. In addition, Maddox was the only player to have been teammates with both John Elway and Ben Roethlisberger, as the latter idolized the former growing up and wears number 7 in his honor.
