Only a few top notch players, really.   One HOF:  Ernie Stautner.

And actually....the guy that had probably the best career was Jim Tyrer......an OT from Ohio State.   But, he ended up murdering his wife and committing suicide....so HE had the worst of the curse. 

Beyond that, the best may have been Hacksaw Reynolds.....who was good, but one of the most reviled players ever to play

...and Hanford Dixon.   No curse there for him.

As much as I respect Hanford as a ballplayer, he tried to con my grandmother out of her selling her a ton of land for practically nothing after he was retired. He gave me a star wars video game when he came over her house, so obviously I loved that, and was thrilled to meet a Browns player. My grandma didn't up end taking his deal, but being an adult now and looking back, that definitely rubbed me the wrong way.
