From the Bears Archives: Rare Gallery of Walter Payton Photos

A really cool look at some rare Walter Payton photos.

Chicago Bears fans can't get enough Walter Payton-- whether that be fans that got to witness Payton play, or younger fans who have grown up watching highlight reels and reading books and articles about his amazing career. He is, undoubtedly, the most celebrated player in Chicago Bears history.

Occasionally you come across an old, rare photo of the Hall of Famer, but recently an entire gallery was found from 2011 that you may not have seen before. It's from Sports Illustrated, who for decades have had some of the best photographers and biographical accounts of players outside of the game.

The link provided includes a full, non-slideshow(!) gallery of great photos... Let us know which ones are your favorites.

If you've got any favorites that aren't included in this gallery, be sure to drop them into the comments section so we can check them out.

Complete gallery can be found HERE.
