It's nice to be surprised. I knew the name Art Powell quite well. I was already aware that he was one of the great players in AFL history. He was a game-breaking receiver with the New York Titans and Oakland Raiders in the pre-merger upstart AFL. He was a two-time All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowl selection. He led the league two times each in receiving yards and touchdowns. He should probably be in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
I somehow did not know that Art Powell played his final professional game as a member of the Minnesota Vikings. In 1968, he appeared in one game for the Vikings, catching one pass for 31 yards.
