Peter Spencer Lammons, Jr. (born October 20, 1943) is a former professional American football player who played tight end for the American Football League's New York Jets, winning the AFL Championship with them in 1968, and playing in their victory over the National Football League champion Baltimore Colts in the third AFL-NFL World Championship game. He also played for the NFL's Green Bay Packers.

As a high school freshman, Lammons played briefly under NFL coach Bum Phillips during his tenure as head coach at Jacksonville High School in Jacksonville, Texas. Lammons fondly recalls Phillips' habit of spitting tobacco into a tin soup can as well as his colorful tirades condemning the shortcomings of the Jacksonville Indians' offense.[] They met again briefly in January 1968 on the sidelines of the 1967 AFL All Star Game. Lammons, playing in his first and only All Star Game, greeted Phillips, who was an assistant with the San Diego Chargers organization, after the game with a question: "Bum, does this mean I can claim you as a coach?" Phillips allegedly responded "You can claim me as your'n if I can claim you as mine, Pete!"[]

Lammons played end for Darrell Royal's 1963 Texas Longhorns football team.
