Drafted in the third round of the 1959 NFL draft out of Cincinnati, Morrison contributed to the Giants' offensive attack in several different ways as a rookie. He rushed the ball 62 times, caught the ball 17 times, and also returned both punts and kicks.
Morrison's statistics were most voluminous as a receiver where he caught the ball enough times to rank in the top five all-time for New York Giants' receptions. Between 1959 and 1972, Morrison notched 395 receptions for 4,993 yards and 47 touchdowns.
Add to that his rushing numbers of 677 attempts for 2,474 yards and 18 touchdowns and it quickly becomes evident why the Giants retired his jersey number.
Did you know that Morrison was also a head football coach for three college teams between 1973 and 1988?
