When we hear the word Chicago Bears and returners, we always think of the great Devin Hester. Well, not this time.

Per the Instagram page sogfootball, Gale Sayers is the 4th best returner in NFL history. I think that is a fair statement. Sayers was a great, all-around player that struck fear in his opponent's head.
Here are his return stats:

Sayers was a 5x All-Pro, 2× NFL rushing yards leader, NFL Comeback Player of the Year, NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year.
His career was, unfortunately, cut short due to many injuries, but for the 7 years he played in Chicago, he was one of the most dominant players this game has ever seen.
Sayers died in September 2020 and he would have turned 79 yesterday.
