Pro Football Hall of Famer Gale Sayers has passed away at the age of 77.

The former Chicago Bears running back is widely considered as one of the greatest running backs in NFL history despite having his career cut short by knee injuries.

Sales was nick-named the “Kansas Comet” and was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977 despite just playing seven seasons, all with the Bears.
