It’s playoff time in the NFL. That means endless uncertainty and drama. To get you in the mood, we will highlight Pittsburg legend, NFL Hall of Famer, four-time Pro Bowler and NFL champion John Henry Johnson.

Johnson played for the 49ers, Lions and Steelers over the course of 12 NFL seasons and was known as a tremendous blocker and runner. In 1957, he won a championship with the Lions.

When he retired, he was the fourth leading rusher in NFL history, with 6,803 yards. In 1987, he was inducted into the Hall of Fame as a fierce and powerful fullback.
