Pro Football Hall of Fame halfback Floyd Little, known for his career with the Denver Broncos in the 1970s and as a three-time All-American at Syracuse, died Saturday. He was 78.
It was revealed last May that Little was battling cancer, and he was placed into hospice care in November.
Little was nicknamed "The Franchise" during his career with Denver. His No. 44 has been retired by both Syracuse and the Broncos. Little was the sixth pick of the 1967 AFL-NFL draft before playing nine seasons with the franchise and accumulating 6,323 yards with 43 touchdowns. A five-time Pro Bowler, Little led the AFL in combined yards in the 1967 and 1968.
