Malcolm Richard "Dick" Wood (born February 29, 1936 in Lanett, Alabama) is a former American football quarterback who played at Auburn before being drafted by the NFL Baltimore Colts in 1959. He never played for the Colts, and signed with the American Football League's Denver Broncos as a free agent in 1962.

Dick played for five different AFL teams during his football career,[1] the only player to do so.
