Joseph Remi Prudhomme (April 24, 1942 - December 6, 1990) was an American football offensive lineman at Louisiana State University, where he was an All-American in 1964. He joined the American Football League's Buffalo Bills in 1965 and played for them in 1966 and 1967, later returning to the Bills of the NFL in the 1972 season.

Buffalo Bills 1960s[edit]

Even though he was injured in 1965 and thus did not dress for a regular season game for the Bills, he was given an American Football League Championship ring for the 1965 season.

Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints[edit]

Prudhomme played for the AFL's Kansas City Chiefs in 1968 and 1969, thus also earning a 1969 AFL Championship ring and a ring from the Chiefs victory over the NFL's Minnesota Vikings in the fourth and final AFL-NFL World Championship Game, better known as Super Bowl IV. In that game, he recovered a Vikings fumble at the Minnesota 19 to set up Mike Garrett's five-yard touchdown run. He later played for the NFL's New Orleans Saints in 1971 and 1972.

Buffalo Bills 1972[edit]

In 1972, Prudhomme became the starting center for the Bills,[1] playing in 6 of 14 games, splitting time with John Matlock and replacing Bruce Jarvis. However, Jarvis got his job back in 1973.
