Vikings player ended short career in ‘78

Today’s question: Who was the scrambling franchise quarterback who began and ended his career with the Minnesota Vikings from 1961-66, with a short stint in New York Giants 1967-71, and ended his career with Minnesota in 1978?

Yesterday’s answer: Thought to be the greatest professional golfer in history, Jack Nicklaus, otherwise known as the Golden Bear, had finished fourth on the money list twice in his career prior to 1979, which were his worst showings to that point.
