Patrick Jesse Beach (born December 28, 1959 in Grants Pass, Oregon) is a former professional American football tight end in the National Football League (NFL) for eleven seasons for the Baltimore Colts, Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, and Phoenix Cardinals.

Beach graduated form Pullman High School and played college football in town at Washington State University; he led the Cougars to the Holiday Bowl in 1981 and was selected by the Colts in the sixth round of the 1982 NFL Draft.[1][2][3][4]

In his second NFL season in 1983, Beach scored the Baltimore Colts' last touchdown in a 20–10 win over the Houston Oilers on December 18, a twelve-yard completion from Mike Pagel with less than two minutes remaining.[5][6] The franchise relocated to Indianapolis prior to the 1984 season.

Following the 1987 season, Beach caught a two-yard touchdown pass in the Colts' divisional playoff game against the Cleveland Browns, a 38–21 loss.[7] In his career, he totaled 163 catches for 1,558 yards, averaging 9.6 yards per catch, and caught 14 touchdowns.

He married high school friend Robyn Crawford in 2007.
