Bill Nagy (born October 26, 1987) is a former American football center and guard, who played for the Dallas Cowboys and the Detroit Lions. He played college football for the University of Wisconsin.

Early years[edit]

Nagy attended Hudson High School, where he was a three-time all-conference selection at guard in football. He also earned two letters in baseball and one in basketball.

He started only three games at right guard during his first three years at the University of Wisconsin. In 2010, he started eight of Wisconsin's thirteen games at three different positions (guard, center, tight end), while playing in all of them.

Professional career[edit]

Dallas Cowboys[edit]

Nagy was selected in the 7th round (252nd overall) of the 2011 NFL Draft by the Dallas Cowboys.[1] After starting four games at left guard in his rookie season, he suffered a fractured ankle and was placed on the injured reserve list on October 18.

After suffering a high ankle sprain on the same ankle he had fractured the previous season, he was waived/injured on August 14, 2012, with the intention of placing him on the injured reserve list.[2]

Detroit Lions[edit]

On August 16, 2012, the Detroit Lions claimed Nagy off waivers, knowing he would have to spend the remainder of the season on the injured reserve list. He was released on July 24, 2013.[3]
