Connecticut: Floyd Little
For such a small state, Connecticut has given the NFL quite a few legendary figures. This was a tight call between Floyd Little and Dwight Freeney, players from different sides of the ball who both played their college football at Syracuse. But as usual, the edge goes to the offensive player.
Little only played nine NFL seasons, all with the Broncos, but he packed a Hall of Fame career into those nine seasons. He led the NFL in rushing one year and rushing touchdowns another year. He went to the Pro Bowl in five of those nine seasons and was called “The Franchise” by Broncos fans, which is high praise. That was all on top of his career at Syracuse that put him in the College Football Hall of Fame long before he entered the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Runners Up: Dwight Freeney, Andy Robustelli
