NFL Great Dies

n RANCHO MIRAGE, California () -- Don Hutson, the greatest receiver of the early days of the National Football League has died. He was 84.


A half-century after his retirement, Hutson still held 11 NFL records. He scored 99 career touchdowns, a mark that stood until Steve Largent broke it in 1989.


Hutson, who once scored 29 points in one quarter, led the Packers to NFL championships in 1936, '39 and '44.
