(670 The Score) Former Bears defensive end Ed O'Bradovich remembered the late, great Gale Sayers as a special player and person. The Hall of Fame running back Sayers died at the age of 77 on Wednesday. He had been battling dementia.

"He was the most fantastic runner I have ever seen in my entire life," O'Bradovich said in an interview with Dan Bernstein and Leila Rahimi on 670 The Score.

"When he got the football, he was gone. That was it."

Sayers was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977 at the age of 28, the youngest player ever to earn the honor. His seven-year career in the NFL, played entirely with the Bears, was cut short due to injuries.

Sayers scored 56 touchdowns in 68 games, including six during a game in 1965.

"I tell you what, God loves Gale Sayers," O'Bradovich said. "He could run like no other running back could ever run or ever will run in the National Football League."
