David Wesley Behrman (November 9, 1941 – December 9, 2014) was an American football offensive lineman in the American Football League for the Buffalo Bills and the Denver Broncos.

Michigan State University[edit]

Behrman played college football at Michigan State University.

Buffalo Bills[edit]

Behrman was the Bills' first-round draft pick in 1963 and played for them that year, but not in 1964. During the 1965 AFL season, Behrman became the Bills' starting center,[1] replacing veteran Walt Cudzik, playing between left offensive guard Billy Shaw and right guard Al Bemiller. However, due to a back injury, Behrman did not play when the Bills won their second AFL Championship game over the San Diego Chargers by a score of 23-0 under head coach Lou Saban. That season, Behrman was an AFL All-Star center. However, he did not play in 1966, replaced by Bemiller.

Denver Broncos[edit]

Behrman ended his career with the AFL's Denver Broncos during the 1967 AFL season when he played in 11 games. On December 9, 2014, he died of pancreatic cancer.[2]
