He also became the highest paid player in the NFL in 1938 -- as a rookie! For $15,800, I think.

Tell me, how many people on this board would crap their pants if one of the top picks on Saturday got a contract to be the highest paid player in the league? I sure would.

I didn't figure too many people would remember White, but everyone could enjoy "The Whizzer".
