Bill Currier was drafted by the Houston Oilers in the 9th round (232nd overall) of the 1977 NFL Draft. He spent his first three seasons with the Oilers, playing in all 44 regular season games for the team during those years. Currier wore this jersey for road games at one point during that stretch. The Oilers released him prior to the 1980 season and Currier inked a deal with the New England Patriots. Currier spent his one season there as a reserve as the team had no less than five former first-round picks in the secondary that earned higher salaries. A week prior to the start of the 1981 season, Currier was dealt by the Patriots to the New York Giants, who had hired Patriots assistant, Bill Parcells, as their head coach. Currier spent his final five seasons in the NFL with the Giants. In the 1984 NFC Wild Card Game, he recovered a pivotal fumble and made 14 tackles in the Giants 16-13 win over the Rams. During his career, Currier played in 111 games with 11 interceptions, 3 sacks, and a touchdown. He has been inducted into both the Maryland State Athletic Hall of Fame and the Anne Arundel County Hall of Fame. In high school at Glen Burnie, Currier was awarded the Annapolis Touchdown Club Rhodes Trophy as Anne Arundel County's top player in 1972.
