In the rookie John Riggins appearance with the New York Jets, Riggins became the first Jet to lead the team in both rushing and receiving. And although Riggins missed the final two games of his rookie season because of injury, he rushed for 944 yards, only four yards less than the then-franchise record.
Riggins would go on to break the record. After only four years with the Jets, he was already the team’s fourth leading rusher ever. After four years, Riggins was traded to the Redskins. His career with the Redskins was, to be mild, tumultuous, including a contract hold out that kept him out for an entire season. But when Riggins finally did go back to the team at the request of new head coach Joe Gibbs, he had a huge impact. He would help the Redskins capture a Super Bowl title and eventually become the second player in NFL history to rush for 100 or more touchdowns.
