Pro Football career

Green Bay Packers

The Packers selected him in the seventh round of the 1953 NFL draft out of Syracuse. Ringo was considered vastly undersized at 211 pounds. The 1953 NFL Draft was held on January 22, 1953. ...


He was not, however, unfit for the role, using his outstanding quickness and excellent technique to build a 15-year NFL career, including 11 seasons with the Packers, as one of the game's best centers. Note: Basketball teams from Chicago and Anderson once used the name Packers as well. ...


Ringo played for four different head coaches in his Packers tenure. in his first six seasons in Green Bay, playing under Gene Ronzani (1953), Lisle Blackbourn (1954-57) and Ray "Scooter" McLean (1958), the Packers went 20-50-2. Gene Ronzani was the second head coach of the Green Bay Packers. ...


But Vince Lombardi's arrival in 1959 changed everything, and for Ringo's final four seasons the Packers went 50-15-1. Ringo certainly knew individual success before the Lombardi era, attending his first of seven straight Pro Bowls in 1957,but he flourished under the coaching legend, earning consensus All-Pro honors from 1959-63. Vincent Thomas Lombardi (June 11, 1913 – September 3, 1970) was one of the most successful head coaches in the history of American football. ... In professional American football, the Pro Bowl is the all-star game of the National Football League (NFL). ...


Ringo's speed and mobility made him an ideal blocker for Lombardi's famous power sweep, and all but one of running back Jim Taylor's five 1,000-yard seasons, including his then-record 1,474-yard effort in 1962, came with Ringo at center. James Charles Taylor (born on September 20, 1935) was a professional football player for ten NFL seasons, from 1958-1967. ... Year 1962 (MCMLXII) was a common year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1962 calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


Philadelphia Eagles

Ringo was a member of the Packers' NFL Championship teams of 1961 and 1962, but he was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles before the Packers went on to win three more titles from 1965-67. Year 1961 (MCMLXI) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1962 (MCMLXII) was a common year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1962 calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

The details of Ringo's trade have been the subject of speculation. For years it was said that following the 1963 season, Ringo showed up in Lombardi's office, with an agent in tow, looking to negotiate a raise. Lombardi, according to this account, was so angered that he excused himself for five minutes only to return and announce that he had traded Ringo to the Eagles. Over the years it has been suggested that that story is more fiction than fact. In reality, Lombardi had probably been negotiating a trade for some time. The Packers also traded fullback Earl Gros and received in return linebacker Lee Roy Caffey as a first-round draft pick that they used to select fullback Donny Anderson. Still, the legend persists. Ringo, who played 126 consecutive games for the Packers from 1954-63, finished out his career with the Philadelphia Eagles, attending 3 more Pro Bowls before retiring after the 1967 campaign. Earl Gros(Born:1940) is a former National Football League runningback,who played for the Green Bay Packers,the Philadelphia Eagles,the Pittsburgh Steelers,and the New Orleans Saints, in a career lasting 9 years. ... Lee Roy Caffey (June 3, 1941 - January, 1994) was an American football linebacker, mainly for the Green Bay Packers. ... Donny Anderson played professional football for nine years in the NFL. A halfback and punter from Texas Tech, Anderson was the first round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in 1965, the seventh overall selection in the draft that included future hall-of-famers Dick Butkus and Gale Sayers. ...
