Paul Christopher Seymour (born February 6, 1950) is a former professional American football player. He played five seasons for the Buffalo Bills.

A 6'5", 250 lbs. tackle from the University of Michigan, Seymour played for the Bills from 1973–1977 and was converted to a tight end.

In August 1978 the Bills traded Seymour to the Pittsburgh Steelers in exchange for wide receiver Frank Lewis. However, Seymour failed to pass the Steelers physical when they discovered that he had undergone surgery on his arches.[1] Seymour was returned to the Bills, but he never played another NFL game.

Seymour currently resides in Okemos, Michigan. His older brother, Jim, was a standout wide receiver at the University of Notre Dame.
