Denver Broncos Hall of Fame RB Floyd Little dies at 78

Hall of Fame running back Floyd Little died Friday at the age of 78.

"Floyd Little was a true hero of the game. He was a man of great integrity, passion and courage," Pro Football Hall of Fame president and CEO David Baker said in a statement. "His contributions off the field were even greater than his amazing accomplishments he did on it. Floyd's smile, heart and character epitomized what it meant to have a Hall of Fame life.

Little had been diagnosed with cancer, which was made public by one of his former Syracuse teammates, Patrick Killorin, at the end of May.
