Martin Francis Domres (/ˈdɒmrɛs/ DOM-rehs;[1] born April 17, 1947) is a former American collegiate and professional football player. From Columbia University, he was drafted in the first round of the Common Draft as a quarterback by the American Football League's San Diego Chargers. Rarely seeing action behind John Hadl during his three years with the Chargers, Domres requested a trade and was acquired by the Baltimore Colts for John Andrews and a 1973 first-round pick (25th overall–Johnny Rodgers) on August 7, 1972.[2][3] He replaced Johnny Unitas as the starting quarterback beginning in Week 6 of the 1972 campaign after John Sandusky succeeded Don McCafferty as head coach and was ordered by general manager Joe Thomas to bench the veterans in favor of the younger players.[4][5] Domres played in nine professional football seasons from 1969 to 1977 for four teams.
