Edward Francis Healey Jr. (December 28, 1894 – December 9, 1978) was an American football player. Healey attended high school in Springfield, Massachusetts. He played professionally in the National Football League (NFL) for the Rock Island Independents and the Chicago Bears. Healey attended both the College of the Holy Cross and Dartmouth College and was a three-year starter in football at Dartmouth. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1964 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1974.
After starring against the Bears, he was the first player bought by George Halas, for $100, who called him "the most versatile tackle of all time". He was thus the first NFL played to be traded and sold. He once tackled his own teammate, who was running in the wrong direction after an interception.
