Robbert Lee Riddick (born April 26, 1957 in Quakertown, Pennsylvania) is a former American football running back in the NFL who played for the Buffalo Bills. He played college football at Millersville University.

Riddick played eight seasons for the Bills; he started eight games and ran for 632 total yards in 1986, and he became a short-yardage specialist in 1988.

Because of his high-jumping ability, Riddick became a short-yardage weapon for the Bills in 1988; he scored twelve touchdowns, all but three of which were from the opponent's 1-yard line; the longest of his rushing touchdowns was five yards.

Riddick's oldest son Ian Riddick, is a former high school standout at West Seneca West HS and a former defensive back at the University of Pittsburgh. His youngest son Andre Riddick was also an above average athlete and, although being used sparingly at Lancaster High School, he made his way on to the Big Ten and National Championship teams at Ohio State University.

Before attending Millersville, Riddick went to Pennridge High School where he was an outstanding football player. Riddick is from an accomplished family of other Professional Football players, for example: Will Lewis, Riddick's cousin, who played for the Seattle Seahawks; and Will's younger brother Tim, who is also Riddick's cousin played for a professional team. Currently both of his cousins are in management positions for professional football teams.
