"Washington will be coming back from knee surgery in the off-season. He was the leading kickoff returner with the Bills in 1975, running back 35 kickoffs for 923 yards, a 26.4 average. The fourth leading kickoff returner in the AFC, Vic also backed up Jim Braxton at running back and saw action for three games at safety. He had 49 rushing yards on nine carries and caught two passes for 21 yards.
Vic accumulated over 2,000 rushing yards with San Francisco and Houston before coming to Buffalo and has accounted for over 6,300 total yards in rushing, receiving and kickoff returns in five years in the NFL. He played three years with the 49ers and one year with Houston after three seasons in the Canadian League. A fourth round draft choice of San Francisco in 1970, Vic was the leading rushing for the 49ers in 1971 with 811 yards.
He played two years at Wyoming and earned All-Western Athletic Conference honors both seasons. Vic led the nation in punt returns as a sophomore, was second as a junior, and played both offense and defense."
