John Richard Bauer (born March 11, 1932) is a former American football guard and tackle who played for the National Football League's (NFL) New York Giants.

Born in Benton, Illinois,[1] Bauer attended the University of Illinois, where he played for the school's football team from 1951 to 1953.[2] In the first round of the 1954 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns chose him with the 12th overall pick.[1] In August 1954, Bauer was traded to the Green Bay Packers as part of a six-player transaction.[3] A month later, the Giants acquired Bauer from the Packers in another trade.[4] Bauer played in two games for the Giants during the 1954 NFL season as a backup.[1] He went into the Army and returned to the Giants in 1957, but left the team before the start of the season.[5]
