Herschel Walkers NFL return has already been successful as he has just signed again with the Dallas Cowboys. Walker aged 52 claimed he could still be a productive NFL Running Back even at his age. But maybe this isnt so odd as Walker has been successful boasting a 2-0 record in MMA in his late 40’s. Despite being unproductive later in his NFL career can Walker regain his old form and be an elite NFL player again?
Walker is known primarily for being part of the greatest trade in NFL history which led to the Triplets coming to shape in Dallas and 3 SuperBowls also. But lets look at the numbers of Walker in his “prime”. Walker only broke 1,000 yards 2 times in his NFL career. Having not even 10,000 career rushing yards with just under 2,000 carries and 4.2 yard per carry average. Unless Walker is in greater shape now than before I highly doubt he could even survive a hit let alone be an actually good player at his position.
Walker is on his 3rd stint with Dallas but sitting behind Murray maybe can help Walker not have to be such a big part on offense. This upcoming training camp will be a very interesting for the Cowboys. A 52 year old Running Back and potentially Johnny Manziel, this will be a circus all year and we look forward to seeing this unfold and blow up in Jerry Jones face. But maybe Jerry knows what he is doing. After all he said himself he is doing a great job. Ill just take his word for it.
