Walter Payton


Walter would have been a great safety, as well. Good call.

Sammy Baugh was great on offense, defense, and special teams. This is a hard question though.

I don't care that you attached the offense/defense requirement... Payton was the greatest football player ever...

Sammy Baugh- played quarterback, punter, and defensive back.

In 1943 he led the league in passing, punting, and interceptions. Talk about a triple crown.
