18 years in the NFL with the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants. Three Super Bowl appearances. 3,686 completions, 6,467 pass attempts, 342 touchdowns, 47,003 yards passing, and 3,674 yards rushing — all NFL records. A Hall of Fame induction in 1986. Monday Night Football. “That’s Incredible.”
Those are some of the things that might come to your mind when you hear the name Fran Tarkenton. But if you ask him, he’ll give you a different answer. “I’m an entrepreneur, first and always,” he says.
Over 50 years in business, Tarkenton has built more than 20 successful companies, all from the ground up. And today, 75 years old, he remains as active and involved as ever, running multiple companies out of his office in Atlanta, Georgia.
