Hall Of Fame Wide Receiver for the Miami Dolphins
Paul Warfield Biography
[[Paul Warfield]] was born November 28, 1942 in Warren, Ohio and was a professional American football wide receiver in the 1960s and 1970s known for his speed, fluid moves, grace, jumping ability and hands.
Warfield played for the Cleveland Browns as a wide receiver from 1964 to 1969. In 1970, in a then-controversial trade, Browns owner Art Modell dealt the still great Warfield to the Miami Dolphins for a draft pick which the Browns used on Purdue University All-American quarterback Mike Phipps. Phipps never panned out for the Browns and Warfield was a major factor in the Dolphins' championships in the early 1970s.
Shortly before Super Bowl VI, President Richard M. Nixon famously telephoned Dolphins coach Don Shula to suggest that they run a particular pass play to Warfield. The play, a crossing pattern, was tried and resulted in an incomplete pass.
In 1974, shortly after the Dolphins' won the Super Bowl, Warfield and teammates Larry Csonka and Jim Kiick made what were then surprising decisions. They left the Dolphins at the conclusion of the season for what appeared to be more lucrative pastures with the Toronto Northmen of World Football League. The Northmen moved to Memphis without playing a game in Toronto. Warfield played the 1975 season with the Memphis Southmen, before finishing his playing career with the Browns in 1976 and 1977. He was in the Pro Bowl eight times, and was nameed All League six times.
In his rookie season 1964, he caught 52 receptions (his best season for receptions) for 920 yards and 9 touchdowns as the Browns won the NFL Championship.
In 1968, he caught 50 passes, and for the only time in his career, gained over 1,000 yards in receiving (1,067 yards). That year, he scored 12 touchdowns, as the Browns reached the NFL Championship for the third time in the 1960s.
For most of Warfield's tenure in Miami, the Dolphins ran an offense which stressed running the ball. Warfield was considered a major threat on any given play. Even though he only caught 29 passes during the 1973 NFL season, 11 of those receptions were touchdown catches, with four coming in the first half of the regular season finale. Three years earlier, when he arrived in Miami, he caught only 28 passes but he averaged 25.1 yards per catch.
He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1983. In 1999, he was ranked number 60 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players.
