Earl Campbell - Was a big star and won the Heisman Trophy in college in 1977, had a breakout rookie season in the NFL, played 5-6 great seasons for a bad team (Houston) , traded to another bad team (Saints) for a couple more seasons, then walked away after 8 years.

The 1977 Heisman winner, Billy Sims, had 4 all star years with the Lions but then a knee injury ended his career. He ended up having to sell his Heisman trophy.
