A few weeks ago we took a look at former Chicago Bears quarterback Steve Bradley who holds the distinction as being the career leader in touchdown passes for players who only played in one game during their entire career. That got us to thinking, what player is the career rushing leader for players that only played one game in their entire career?
That answer is Vincent Alexander of the New Orleans Saints. Like Bradley, Alexander played his one game during the 1987 NFL player’s strike. Alexander came out of Southern Mississippi and got his break in week 3 of the season when the Saints beat the Los Angeles Rams by a score of 37-10. During that game, his only game played in the NFL, he rushed 21 times for 71 yards (a respectable 3.4 yards per carry) and scored a touchdown. He also added to those totals with two pass receptions for 15 yards as well.
In a couple of weeks, we’ll take a look at the leading receiver of all players who only played in one game during their entire NFL career.
