Hey, for a hundred bucks..why not?

After brief stints with the Saints and Chiefs, Jim Otis found himself on waivers and in 1973 the Cardinals picked him up for the price of $100 and never regretted it. Not big, not fast, but boy could he get the job done! In 1975, Jim banged his way to 1,076 yards, and led the NFC in rushing. With this one yard plunge against the Giants, Otis not only scores but he also breaks the Cardinal’s career rushing record of 3,068 yards held by Johnny Roland. When you slam past Ernie Jones, Harry Carson and George Martin…you’re packin’ a whallop!!
