Lynn Swann: The Gift of Grab

Lynn Swann is an immortal; a Hall of Famer who possessed remarkable intangibles... singular abilities that few receivers before or since have demonstrated. Arguably the greatest big-game receiver of all time, Swann's style and grace in an era of headhunting DBs defined the position for a generation of players and fans. Perhaps no player in NFL history did more with less than Lynn Swann. He played on a defensive-minded, ground control team that provided him with limited opportunities to showcase his talent, yet he is remembered as a "hero" by the likes of Rice, Carter and Moss. Nicknamed "Baryshnikov in cleats" for his balletic receiving style, Lynn Swann truly performed with the "Gift of Grab."
