Robustelli was drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in 1951 and played on two Rams championship teams. In 1956, Wellington Mara traded for Robustelli, who provided a tremendous lift in the Giants' title drive that season. Robustelli, who stayed with the Giants through the 1964 season, played on a winning team in 13 of his 14 pro seasons. He played in eight NFL championship title games and seven Pro Bowls. Robustelli was named All-NFL seven times, two with the Rams and five with the Giants. Robustelli was a durable player who missed only one game in his 14-year career. He was the Giants' general manager prior to George Young. He was a 1971 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee.
