Herschel Walker says he could still play in the NFL at 52. 

A few years ago, Walker said he'd like to be the "George Foreman of football" just to show everyone he could still do it at 50 years old.

Now Walker says he could still be a contributor, telling the USA Today, "I couldn't take every snap. But running backs nowadays don't play every down."

"Now they send in the choir section. Physically, I can still do it."

The 1982 Heisman Trophy winner has been training as a mixed martial artist, and although he isn't planning a comeback, I'm sure that if he got a call he would consider trying out training camp.

Walker spent 12 season in the NFL with the Cowboys, Vikings, Eagles, and Giants.
