1974 Profile: Fred Forsberg

No. 57
"The Bills acquired Fred from Denver in exchange for safety John Pitts last October 4. He played three games with Denver and seven with the Bills, making his only start of 1973 against the Dolphins in Miami.
A good man on special teams, Fred spent five seasons with the Broncos. He was a 14th round draft choice of Denver in 1966, played for two years with the Calgary Stampeders after being cut and was re-signed as a free agent in 1968. He missed the entire 1969 campaign with an injury after winning a starting job in the preseason, but intercepted three passes as a Denver reserve in 1971. Forsberg appeared in nine games in 1972 before suffering a knee injury.
He was a center and defensive end for Coach Jim Owens at Washington and was captain of the Huskies as a senior. An All-Coast selection, Forsberg won postseason invitations to the Hula Bowl, East-West Shrine Game and Coaches All-America Game. He was a physical education and health major."
