DENVER — Floyd Little was known as "The Franchise."
On May 17, 1967, Little became the first first-round draft pick to sign with the AFL's Denver Broncos. Three years later, Little became the franchise's first ever back to rush for more than 1,000 yards in a season.
Little finished his career with more than 12,000 all-purpose yards, 54 touchdowns and played all nine of his professional season with the Broncos.
He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010.
