Glyn Curt Milburn (born February 19, 1971) is an American former professional football player who was a running back and return specialist for nine seasons in the National Football League (NFL). After playing college football for the Stanford Cardinal, he was selected by the Denver Broncos in the second round of the 1993 NFL Draft. He also played for the Detroit Lions, Chicago Bears, and San Diego Chargers. He holds the NFL record for most all-purpose yards gained in a single game with 404 on December 10, 1995. He was also the Chicago Bears all-time leading kick returner with 4,596 yards.[1] He was selected to the Pro Bowl twice in 1995 and 1999, and was named first-team All-Pro in 1999.[2] After his playing career ended, he was the General Manager and the Director of Player Personnel for the Austin Wranglers in the Arena Football League from 2004 to 2008.

College career

Milburn attended the University of Oklahoma in 1988 and Stanford University from 1990-1992.

Professional career

Denver Broncos

Milburn was selected by the Denver Broncos in the second round (43rd overall) of the 1993 NFL Draft.[3] He tied the Broncos' franchise record for kick returns in a playoff game with 6 against the Los Angeles Raiders on January 9, 1994. In 1995, he set the Broncos' franchise records for kick return yards in a season with 1,269, and total return yards in a season with 1,623. On December 10, 1995, he set an NFL record for all-purpose yards in a game with 404 total yards.

Detroit Lions

By the end of the 1995 season, Terrell Davis had established himself as the Broncos starting running back, and Milburn was traded to the Detroit Lions for second- (58th overall) and seventh-round picks in the 1996 NFL Draft.[4] Milburn played in 32 regular season games for the Lions.

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers acquired Milburn in a trade with the Lions in April 1998.[5] He participated in the Packers preseason activities, but on August 29, 1998, he was traded to the Chicago Bears in exchange for a seventh round draft pick (later used to select wide receiver Donald Driver).[6]

Chicago Bears

Playing for the Bears from 1998 to 2001, Milburn set the franchise record for kickoff return yards with 4,596, though he was eventually passed by Devin Hester.[7]

San Diego Chargers

On November 9, 2001, the San Diego Chargers signed Milburn.[8] He played in six games and was used primarily as a punt returner.
