Former NFL Defensive Back
Paul Krause Biography
Paul Krause was born February 19, 1942 in Flint, Michigan and is a former professional American football defensive back in the National Football League. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1998.
In 1968, Krause was traded to the Minnesota Vikings, for whom he played until he retired after the 1979 season. During that time, he was one of the few players to play in all four of the Vikings Super Bowl appearances (Super Bowl IV, VIII, IX, and XI). Krause recorded an interception in Super Bowl IV and a fumble recovery in Super Bowl IX.
Krause was often referred to as the Vikings "Center Fielder" because of his success as an interscholastic baseball player and his ability to catch interceptions.
He currently holds the all-time interception record in the NFL with 81, which he returned for 1,185 yards and three touchdowns. He acquired the record in 1979 against the Los Angeles Rams, in the second quarter of a 27-21 overtime loss with his 81st interception coming in the final period. The previous record of 79 was held by Emlen Tunnell, another former Hawkeye who played for the New York Giants and the Green Bay Packers from 1948 to 1961.
Krause recovered 19 fumbles, returning them for 163 yards and three touchdowns. Krause only missed two games due to injuries in 16 seasons.
