Career: 13,662 yards, 91 TDs
With Steelers: 10,571 yards, 78 TDs
One of the most beloved Steelers in recent memory, “The Bus,” Jerome Bettis, was traded to Pittsburgh in 1996 from the Rams and was the perfect fit for the smash-mouth football the Steelers wanted to play.
He rushed for 1,000 yards in his first six seasons with the Steelers and had a career-best 1,665-yard season, which was 25 yards short of the team record for a season.
However, injuries began to take effect on Bettis. While rushing for over 1,000 yards, he missed most of 2001 and part of '02. This led to Bettis being the backup for the Steelers for the 2003 season and the start of the 2004 season.
However, due to other injuries, Bettis became the starter midway through the 2004 season and gained 100 yards in six of his eight games.
Even though Bettis was more of a short-yardage back in 2005, he helped the Steelers on a historic run to becoming the first sixth seed to ever win the Super Bowl.
Bettis, finally being a champion, retired after that season and finished as the NFL’s fifth all-time leading rusher.
