Faulk's record on display in Canton
December 15, 2005

The shoes, gloves, and jersey worn by St. Louis Rams running back Marshall Faulk this past weekend arrived at the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Thursday. The memorabilia was from the Ramsí Week 14 game against the Minnesota Vikings. Faulk caught five passes for 25 yards in that game to set the new NFL mark for career receiving yards by a running back.

By gameís end, he had a total of 6,801 yards which surpassed the yardage accumulated by Larry Centers who had caught 827 passes for 6,797 yards during his career with the Phoenix/Arizona Cardinals, Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills, and New England Patriots.

Faulk, who is the NFLís 10th ranked rusher of all-time, is currently No. 17 on the list of career receptions. In 12 seasons, he has caught 753 catches and has 36 receiving touchdowns.

The artifacts from Faulkís history-making day join a great many pieces in the Hallís collection that are related to the Rams. A sampling of Rams memorabilia in Canton include Kurt Warnerís Super Bowl XXXIV jersey, the jersey worn by Willie Ellison in 1971 when he set the then-record for yards rushing in game, and Eric Dickersonís shoes from when he established the NFL mark for yards rushing in a season.

Faulkís shoes, gloves, and jersey are now on exhibit in the Hallís Pro Football Today exhibition area.
