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.
