1975 Profile: Bill Cahill

Punt Returner-Free Safety
No. 22
"Cahill got into every game last fall primarily as a performer on special teams. He had 10 punt returns, second only to department leader Donnie Walker, and a kickoff return of 26 yards. Activated by the Bills in 1973 just prior to the Bengal game, Bill ran a punt back 51 yards for a touchdown in the '73 finale against the Jets at Shea Stadium.
A seventh round draft choice of New Orleans, Bill was released by the Saints just prior to the start of the 1973 regular season. He had a trial with Pittsburgh before landing with the Bills.
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 College All-Star Game.
Psychology and English were his major subjects at Washington."
