Chicago Bears Hall of Fame running back Gale Sayers died Wednesday, September 23, 2020. Sayers had been battling dementia since 2013, according to his family. He was 77.

The legendary Sayers played seven seasons with the Chicago Bears (1965-1971). Sayers only played 68 N.F.L. games due to knee injuries. Sayers was one of the best and explosive running backs in the National Football League. Sayers scored six touchdowns in one game. Sayers was rookie of the year in 1965. Sayers also had four Pro Bowl seasons and was a first-team All-Pro selection during his first five seasons. Sayer was the Hall's youngest inductee at the age of 34. Thank you for your service with Da Bears. Rest in peace.
