Former NFL Star and Super Bowl Champion Tony Siragusa Dead at 55

Legendary Baltimore Ravens defensive lineman Tony Siragusa has died, the team confirmed. He was 55.

"He was a special person and clearly one of the most popular players in Ravens history," team owner Steve Bisciotti said in a statement on Twitter Wednesday.

Bisciotti said Siragusa, who fans often called "The Goose," was a "larger-than-life personality" who "made an enormous impact" on the organization, as well as the Baltimore community.

"On the football field, Goose was a difference-maker who contributed immeasurably to the success of many great Ravens defenses," Bisciotti said of Siragusa, who also played for the Indianapolis Colts.

Following his retirement from the NFL in 2001, Siragusa worked as a sideline reporter for Fox Sports from 2003-2015.

His cause of death has not yet been made publicly available.

Siragusa signed with the Colts as an unrestricted free agent after going undrafted in 1990. He played in the NFL for 12 seasons, including a Super Bowl win with the Ravens in 2000.

One of Siragusa's former Baltimore teammates, Ray Lewis, said, "This is a tough one."
