Read it this morning on CSN. Very underrated HOFer, I'd even bet many casual Eagles fans didn't even know he was a HOFer.

Met him a couple of times at the HOF and got a couple autographs at the tent sessions from him. He was as proud or prouder of his military service as he was his football career. Good man. RIP.

Nice. He only recently started appearing in some FB releases as a certified auto. I picked this one up for the HOF PC out of '09 Classics when I saw they put him in the run. Only 25 made :
