Joe DeLamielleure was perhaps the central figure in the "Electric Company," the Bills' offensive line that paved the way for O. J. Simpson to rush for 2,003 yards in 1973, the first player ever to break that barrier, and the only player ever to do so in a 14-game schedule. The league leading rushing yardage mark of 3,088 yards is still the 14-game record. In 1975, Joe was named by the NFLPA as Offensive Lineman of the Year. In 1973, Joe was Co-Offensive Linemen of the Year as awarded by the 1000 Yard Rusher Club, Columbus, Ohio. In 1977 Joe received Forrest Gregg Award as NFL's Top Offensive Lineman. DeLamielleure was a 6-time Pro Bowler as well as 6-time first team All-Pro.
This Buffalo Bills jersey was signed in black by DeLamielleure and inscribed, "HOF '03." This jersey includes a JSA sticker and COA.
