1974 Profile: Bill Cahill

Punt Returner-Free Safety
No. 22
"Cahill saw service in five games after being activated by the Bills just prior to the Bengals' visit. He was used on special teams, as a defensive safety and as a punt returner. Bill had four punt returns for 73 yards to rank second in that department and ran a punt back 51 yards for a touchdown in the finale against the Jets. He also collected 42 yards on a pair of kickoff returns.
A seventh round draft choice of New Orleans, Bill was released by the Saints just before the start of the regular season. He had a trial with Pittsburgh before landing with the Bills and will get a long look at free safety.
Cahill was a three-year letterman as a weak safety for the Huskies and co-captain as a senior. He saw postseason action in the Hula Bowl, Coaches All-Star game at Lubbock, Texas and the College All-Star game.
Psychology and English were his major subjects at Washington."
