Known as “Sweetness,” Payton was joy for all to watch. He changed the way the running back position was played, due to his incredible versatility. As a rusher, Payton achieved all of the major feats that can be reached by a rusher in the NFL. At one point, he had held the all-time records for rushing yards, touchdowns, carries, and yards from scrimmage. To this day, he remains in second place on the all-time rushing list, with 16,726 yards on the ground. In 1977, he won the league’s MVP award, and later was a key member of the 1985 Chicago Bears (who many consider to be the greatest team in NFL history).
