Roy Lee Jefferson
Roy Lee Jefferson played twelve seasons in the National Football League. During 162 regular season games he had 451 receptions for 7,539 yards and 52 touchdowns. Jefferson spent his first five NFL seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers (1965-1969). In 1968, Jefferson led the NFL in receiving yards with 1,074. His 58 receptions and 11 touchdowns were both 2nd highest in the NFL that season. He was named 1st Team All-Pro by Associated Press (AP), the Newspaper Enterprise Association (NEA), New York Daily News and UPI in 1969. Despite being the Steelers best offensive player, conflicts with head coach Chuck Noll would result in Jefferson being traded to the Baltimore Colts before the 1970 season. Jefferson was with the Colts for only one season, but helped them reach and win Super Bowl V. He spent six seasons with the Redskins, helping them reach Super Bowl VII in 1972, before retiring after the 1976 season.
