Former football running back O.J. Simpson played for the Buffalo Bills and San Francisco 49ers from 1969 to 1979. Simpson was drafted by the Bills in 1969 following a standout collegiate career at USC, where he spent his first nine seasons before joining the 49ers for his final two.
Simpson's most successful year occurred in 1973, when he rushed for a then-record of 2,003 yards and was named the NFL's most valuable Player. Two years later, Simpson tallied 2,243 yards from scrimmage and a career-high 23 touchdowns. A six-time Pro Bowl selection, Simpson was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985.
