Mensagem: 

he has played for our team for five years ( although he's not on the  active roster this season, he may or may not remain on the reserve list for the rest of the season, we don't know about that  )

 

he's been playing for our team for five years (indicates that the action has been going on uninterruptedly but in this case has the same meaning as the sentence above )

When the present perfect has since or for, it has the same meaning as the present perfect progressive.
