RIP: Ex-Vikings kicker Fred Cox, inventor of Nerf football, dies at 80. “In 1972, while still playing for the Vikings, Cox came up with the idea of a soft football to prevent leg injuries to kids. He and partner John Mattox, a local entrepreneur, took a mold of a full-sized football and injected it with soft foam rubber material. The result was the Nerf football.”
