29. Robert Smith
Robert Smith retired at the height of his career, right after he rushed for over 1,500 Yards for the first time in his career and made his second Pro Bowl.   He didn’t leave the game due to injury but rather to preserve his long term health, a decision made more and more in the current generation.  While Smith did retire early, he did produce over 6,000 Rushing Yards with 38 total Touchdowns, more than enough to earn him a spot here.

Why did Randy Moss get inducted in to the Vikings hall of fame when he left the Vikings on a bad note. And Robert Smith retired on a good note with the Vikings, yet never got inducted in the Vikings hall of fame
