CLINT JONES

Game 151 | April 26, 1967| Bud Grant, Clint Jones
In trading Fran Tarkenton to the New York Giants, the Minnesota Vikings acquired a first-round draft choice they used to select Michigan State running back Jones. The second choice overall, Jones became a fixture in the Vikings backfield for the next six years. For most of his career he teamed with either Bill Brown or Dave Osborn. He led the team in rushing in 1971, but was traded to San Diego when the Vikings needed to make room for Chuck Foreman.
