Jerry Mark Golsteyn (born August 6, 1954 in West Allis, Wisconsin) is a former professional American football player. A 12th round drafted quarterback from Northern Illinois University, Golsteyn played in 8 NFL seasons from 1977 to 1984 for 5 different teams. He also played a brief stint for the Orlando Americans in the American Football Association[1] in 1981, becoming one of the few NFL-caliber players to play in that league. (The fact that Golsteyn was a star in the league was occasionally used as a joke regarding the AFA's inability to sign marquee talent.)[2] He then played for the Orlando Renegades of the USFL in 1985.
