  1. I remember watching him in 1984 with the Redskins….he had a pretty decent year. RIP young man.

  2. #82 on the ’83 champs; teamed with Malcolm Barnwell and Dokie Williams for an unheralded but very effective WR corps. RIP Mr. Muhammad.

  3. I really thought he had a lot more receptions than that, especially when he played for the Raiders. He always seemed to come up big when it was needed for the ‘83 World Champion Raiders. RIP Calvin Muhammad…..
