Hines played collegiately for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks and was drafted by the NFL's St. Louis Cardinals and the American Football League's Houston Oilers in 1965. In 1966, he signed with the Oilers and played for them until 1969 in the AFL, and in 1970 in the NFL. He played the 1971 and 1972 seasons with the New Orleans Saints, and retired after his final season with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1973. An accomplished pass blocker at a time when offensive linemen were severely restricted in the use of their hands to block pass rushers, he was an AFL All-Star game selection - the AFL version of the Pro Bowl - in 1968 and 1969.
A model of durability, from his first season in 1966 through his final season in 1973, Hines played in 115 consecutive games, including three playoff games.
Hines was a consensus All-American in 1965, and was selected to the Southwest Conference All-Time Team in 1996.
