1971 Profile: Austin Denney

Tight End
No. 84
'The Bills acquired tight end Austin Denney from Chicago during training camp last summer and the four-year veteran did a commendable job for Buffalo. The 6-2, 229-pounder was a rugged blocker and performed as a short yardage pass receiver, catching 14 passes for 201 yards. Denney, who was an All-American at Tennessee, lacks the speed necessary to become a deep threat.
Originally with the Dallas Cowboys, the Bears got him along with Mac Percival in 1967 for a draft choice. His best season was in 1968 when he wound up with 23 receptions."
