John Gordon of the Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions were one of the very first NFL teams to get a set of Nautilus Machines. Here’s Defensive Tackle John Gordon (who was born in Detroit but played his college ball in Hawaii) getting in a quick workout on an excellent pullover/torso arm. This would be somewhere around 1973. Look closely and you’ll notice two features that indicates that these are some very early machines: a.) the open “spider” cams and the fact that there are cables instead of chains.
