It’s about time we packed up our trivia series until the deadest days of the summer, what with free agency and the draft looming. Let’s go out by talking about fumbles, with the hopes that the Falcons won’t be fumbling their offseason.

Ha ha!

Anyways, today’s question concerns who has the most yards in franchise history on fumble returns. The man in question did all his damage on just five recoveries, flashing terrific speed en route to the franchise mark in return yardage with 167. He did so in half the number of recoveries as the second player on the list, too. Our trivia answer today does not hold the record for recoveries or recovery touchdowns, however.

Who is this mysterious man?
