Born and raised in Toledo, Ohio, Szymanski graduated from its Libbey High School, then played college football at the University of Notre Dame. He was the sixteenth overall selection of the 1955 NFL Draft, taken in the second round by the Colts. He missed the 1956 season due to military service, and played on three NFL championship teams (1958, 1959, 1968).
After his playing career concluded in January 1969, Szymanski continued with Baltimore as a scout, personnel director, and general manager. He succeeded Joe Thomas as general manager in January 1977, then stepped down in the spring of 1982.
