Joseph Remi Prudhomme (April 24, 1942 – December 6, 1990) was an American football offensive lineman in the National Football League and the American Football League. He attended Louisiana State University, where he was an All-American defensive tackle in 1964 for the LSU Tigers.

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.
