About Marshall Faulk
To enjoy a long and successful career in any professional sport is impressive, but to do so as a running back in the NFL is worthy of a unique brand of approbation. Marshall Faulk is certainly deserving of this distinctive praise, after retiring in 2006 with the 10th-most rushing yards in NFL history. By the time Faulk hung up his cleats, he was also first in total receiving yards, second in total receptions, and second in receiving touchdowns as a running back. For those that remember the beginning of Faulk’s career, these statistics are no surprise. Faulk blasted out of the gates in his first NFL season with the Indianapolis Colts, rushing for 11 touchdowns, 1,282 yards, and winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year award in 1994. Faulk would go on to play seven of his 12 NFL seasons with the St. Louis Rams, recording several 1,000-yard rushing seasons and becoming the arguably the game’s most effective offensive weapon during that period. Fans of this legendary running back can honor his contribution to the NFL with a Marshall Faulk jersey or by perusing eBay for an authentic Marshall Faulk autograph, which is a timeless piece of memorabilia that extends beyond the history of the Rams or the Colts to the broader history of America’s most popular sport.
