A Forgotten Player Of The NFL: Natrone Means

Fletcher KellyContributor IJuly 10, 2009

Though the Chargers have had many good teams over the years, only one has made it to the big time. That was the 1994 Chargers led by superstars Stan Humphries and Natrone Means.

ESPN Analyst Chris Berman gave Means the nickname "Natrone Means business". Originally Berman gave Means the nickname Natrone "Refried" Means, but changed it to "Natrone Means Business" after Means complained to Berman about the "refried" moniker. Family & friends gave Means the nickname "NaNa".

The guy was a bull with rockets strapped to his feet. During his five years with San Diego, Means produced 3,885 yards for 34 touchdowns. However, in his superstar year of 1994, Means ran for 1,350 yards and 12 touchdowns.

You can tell that Means has been long forgotten. Just look at his fan site; it hasn't been updated since 1999. R.I.P. the career of Natrone Means.
