Arthur F. Spinney Jr. (born November 8, 1927 in Saugus, Massachusetts, died May 27, 1994 in Lynn, Massachusetts [1]) was a guard who played nine seasons with the Baltimore Colts in the National Football League. Spinney attended Boston College. He missed the 1951 and 1952 NFL seasons due to military service.

After his career he served as an offensive line coach for Boston College and the Boston Patriots under Mike Holovak and was also a public relations official.[1] For a brief time, Spinney worked for the American Biltrite Rubber Company of Cambridge, MA, as a consultant to its Sports Surfaces Division. In 1972, along with Lawrence J. Warnalis of Medford, MA, Spinney was awarded U.S. Patent number 3661687 which recognized Biltrite's artificial grass product Poly-Turf as well as its associated layers of product, applied on top of asphalt, as the proper way to construct a football or soccer field with artificial turf. This provided maximum comfort and safety to the players.
