One of the most versatile players in franchise history, Gifford was equally adept at rushing and receiving, and even threw 63 passes in his career. Inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1977, Gifford was an eight-time Pro Bowler and a four-time first-team All Pro. His greatest year came in the 1956 championship season, when he rushed for 819 yards and five touchdowns in 12 games and had 603 receiving yards and four TDs. Credit: UPI, 1954
