Buffalo Bills

As a member of the Bills in his final year (1970), he became their starting center,[3] replacing Al Bemiller. However, the Bills fielded a poor team that year, with a record of 3-10-1, scoring only 204 points (14.6 points/game), 23rd of 26 teams in the NFL, despite the presence of second year pro O.J. Simpson in the backfield, who only rushed for 488 yards. The following year, Marchlewski was replaced by rookie Bruce Jarvis. He died on October 27, 2016 from heart problems, aged 73.[4]

On June 30, 1965, NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle awarded the first NFL franchise in the Deep South to the city of Atlanta and granted ownership to Rankin Smith Sr.So that the Falcons could become competitive with existing teams, the league awarded the Falcons the first pick in the 1966 NFL Draft, supplemented with the final pick in the first five rounds. The NFL also gave the new team the opportunity to select current players from existing teams. That selection was provided by the expansion draft, held on February 15, 1966. In this draft, held six weeks after the regular draft, the existing franchises listed players from which the Falcons could select to switch to the new team.

Each of the 14 established teams froze 29 players on their 40-man rosters that opened the 1965 season (That made 154 players available.). Atlanta picked one of the 11 and then each team froze two more. Atlanta was able to select two more for a total of 42 players chosen. The Falcons paid $8.5 million for the franchise.
