He played for the Washington Redskins (1999-2000), Buffalo Bills (2001-02) and New England Patriots (2003) before retiring with 6,797 receiving yards and 2,188 rushing yards over his career.
Centers was a Pro Bowler three times (1995, 1996 and 2001) overall, his first two selections coming as a member of the Cardinals.
