He put up 8,225 rushing yards and 61 touchdowns. He was selected to the Pro Bowl twice (1987, ’88) and made All-Pro in three years.
Walker led the league in all-purpose yards twice (1987 and ’90) as a member of the Cowboys and Vikings, respectively. His career 18,168 all-purpose yards in the NFL currently rank him 11th all time in the league. (Of the 10 players ahead of him on the list, seven are in the Hall of Fame.)
Looking at his combined USFL and NFL numbers:
• Walker’s combined 13,787 rushing yards would rank fifth among all rushers.
• Walker’s 45 combined touchdowns would tie him with Marcus Allen for sixth all-time.
• Walker’s 25,283 combined all-purpose yards would be greater than Jerry Rice’s career record total (23,546) by nearly 2,000 yards.
Walker was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1999.
Walker last played in the NFL in 1997 -- after a second stint with the Cowboys. He is not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He first became eligible for nomination in 2002. He is once again on the ballot for the 2018 Class.
