1977 Profile: Paul Seymour

Tight End
No. 87
"Seymour was the third leading receiver with the Bills in 1976, catching 16 passes for 169 yards. His receiving statistics improve every year, but his value to the team is more as a strong, devastating blocker.
He has started 55 of 56 games at tight end for the Bills after being converted from tackle. A consistent performer week in and week out, Paul missed one game in 1976 with an ankle injury. He was the Bills' top draft choice in 1973.
Paul started his college career at tight end and moved to tackle in his junior season. He won All-Big Ten and All-America honors in 1972 and was selected to participate in the Hula Bowl, East-West Shrine Game and College All-Star Game.
Physical education and history were his areas of concentration as an undergraduate. His brother, Jim, was an All-America at Notre Dame who later played professionally with the Chicago Bears. Paul is a guitar player, and music and reading are his hobbies."
