John Lawrence Didion (October 24, 1947 – December 10, 2013) was an American football Center in the National Football League for the Washington Redskins and New Orleans Saints from 1969 to 1974. He played college football at Oregon State University and was drafted in the seventh round of the 1969 NFL Draft.
After playing his first two seasons for the Redskins under coaches Vince Lombardi and Bill Austin, he was traded in January 1971 by George Allen to the Saints in the deal which brought quarterback Billy Kilmer to the "Over the Hill Gang".
From 1998 to 2010, Didion was the sheriff of Pacific County, Washington.
Didion died December 10, 2013, in Portland, Oregon.
