Larry Craig Morton is a former American football quarterback in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Denver Broncos.
At age 34, Morton revived his career with the Broncos, finishing the season as the second rated passer in the AFC.
Morton's best statistical season came in his penultimate 17th season in 1981, when he threw for 3,195 yards and 21 touchdowns and had a 90.5 passer ratings. He was a downfield passer not known for his mobility, and is one of the all-time leaders in yards per completion. He also briefly held the record for the most passes completed in a row. His 8.5 yards per attempt that season remains a Broncos franchise record, as do his 54 sacks, and two games where he was sacked seven times each (later matched by Elway and Tim Tebow).
Morton wore number 7 for the Broncos and retired just before the arrival of celebrated rookie John Elway in 1983, who wore the same number and has had it retired in his honor. He still remains as the third all-time passing yards leader in team history with 11,895 and his regular-season record was 50 wins and 28 losses in five seasons. Morton was inducted into the Denver Broncos' Ring of Fame in 1988.
