Rodney Craig Hampton (born April 3, 1969 in Houston, Texas) is a former professional American football player who was drafted by the New York Giants in the first round of the 1990 NFL Draft. A 5'11", 215 lbs. running back from the University of Georgia by way of Kashmere High School in Houston, Texas, Hampton played his entire career with the Giants from 1990-1997. A two-time Pro Bowl selection in 1992 and 1993, his 6,897 career rushing yards stood as the most in Giants history until Tiki Barber surpassed that mark in the 2004 NFL season. Hampton was a member of the Giants team that won Super Bowl XXV.

After his rookie season was cut short due to injury, Hampton emerged as the team's most consistent offensive weapon over the next five seasons. He broke the 1,000 yard mark each year from 1991-1995. Following two disappointing years in 1996 and 1997, including rumors of a possible trade to the San Francisco 49ers, he retired, although he does make appearances at many Giants' charity events.
