The Dallas Cowboys trade of Herschel Walker to the Vikings was one of the first non-Bengals NFL stories I recall. It was a big deal, but it paid off in the end for America’s Team.

Neal Anderson took over for Walter Payton, and although no one could fill Sweetness’ cleats, he had a good run. Anderson was named to the Pro Bowl four straight seasons, starting in 1988.

Walter Payton retired in 1987, but he was requested by a Twitter user. Consider this a “career capper” card.
