Over/under until this turns in a hate thread because he dared to leave the Charlie-Winner-led mid-70s Jets.

Dude could flat out run around and over people for such a big man.  Loved watching him play...To bad he went to the redskins but understand being second banana to Joe is the reason he left...

From what I remember, it was because Weeb, who I believe was also acting as the GM, being a cheapskate with anyone not named Joe Willie, wouldn't pay him $100K a year. I ended up hating the Redskins because of their fans, and because they always ran Riggo right into the line, instead of using him as a receiver out of the backfield. He had great hands for a big guy, and pretty fast to boot.
