Which Bills RB is No. 5 on Gil Brandt's all-time list?

By Tim Graham

Buffalo Bills minicamp opens this afternoon. Buffalo News beat reporters Mark Gaughan and Jay Skurski and I will be at One Bills Drive to gather insights for the paper and the Press Coverage blog. So please check back throughout the day.

As a morning diversion, take a gander at NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt's 10 greatest running backs of all-time. Brandt used the occasion of LaDainian Tomlinson's retirement to review his favorites.

A Bills legend comes in at No. 5, and another just missed the cut as one of six honorable mentions.

You'd certainly guess Thurman Thomas and O.J. Simpson are those two running backs.

But which one was ranked between No. 4 Gale Sayers and No. 6 Earl Campbell?
