Erich Barnes (circa 1956)

Biography

American football defensive back in the National Football League (NFL) who played for the Chicago Bears (1958–1960), New York Giants (1961–1964) and Cleveland Browns (1965–1971). He was a six-time Pro Bowler. Before the NFL, he was an outstanding all-around athlete at Purdue University (1956–1958), where one of his teammates was future NFL star quarterback Len Dawson.

Barnes was known as an aggressive, physical player, and is the Giants record holder for longest interception return after scoring on a 102-yard return against the Dallas Cowboys in 1961. While with the Browns, Barnes was known for standing at the goalpost (then stationed at the goal line) and blocking field goal attempts (a practice later outlawed in the NFL).

After his football career, Barnes went on to work in the New York City area as a corporate special events planner. He was elected to the Indiana Football Hall of Fame in 1986 and the Purdue University Intercollegiate Athletics Hall of Fame in 2009.
