1969 Profile: George Saimes

Free Safety
No. 26
Michigan State
"Undersized but never overlooked, George Saimes has been a perennial All-Pro safetyman almost since coming into the league back in 1963. Standing only 5-10 and weighing 188 pounds, he doesn't present a classic figure, but George is the complete football player.
Roaming his free safety position, he is one of the surest tacklers in the business. He executes the safety blitz just the way it was diagrammed, and steals passes as deftly as a jewel thief. In his six seasons with the Bills, he has collected 19 interceptions.
He played his college football at Michigan State, where he was a running back."

-Jack Zanger, Pro Football 1969
