Kenneth Othell Burrough (born July 14, 1948) is a former professional American football player who was selected by the New Orleans Saints in the first round (10th overall) of the 1970 NFL Draft. A 6'4", 210 lb (95 kg) wide receiver from William M. Raines High School[1] who played for Texas Southern University, Burrough played in 12 NFL seasons for the Saints and Houston Oilers from 1970 to 1981. A two-time Pro Bowl selection in 1975 and 1977, Burrough led all NFL wide receivers in receiving yards with 1,063 in 1975. He was the last NFL player to wear number 00 on his jersey; the league restricted all numbers to between 1 and 89 in 1973 (later expanded to 1 and 99 in 1987), but Burrough and Jim Otto, both of whom wore 00 at the time, were covered under a grandfather clause for the rest of their careers.[2]
