Andolsek , Long and Little suffered the strangest deaths... may I add that Andolsek was in his front yard (I'm assuming he lived in a rural area, off a country road or something) when the semi truck barreled onto his property and ran him over while on foot!

One can only conclude that the antifreeze cocktail meant that Terry Long was in a severe depression, or just not in the right state of mind, obviously

And the most unfortunate, David Little... a guy who was still trying to stay strong in the weight room, had a bar bell roll onto his throat, crushing the life out of him. His son found him in his weight room at home, dead. sad.

I am not making this stuff up.. check it out on wikipedia

next up for research: how many ex TSB players are currently in prison.. I know one thing for sure, the Sea hawks have some Bad Boys on that team.. including a guy doing time for murder! stay tuned

William Perry will most likely be next. He's not doing so well right now.

We should put together a DECEASED team rom, where you can only use one team with players that are all Deceased.

A way to commemmorate their acheivements on and off the field.

Sad indeed. He was always one of those guys who I came to like because of Tecmo.

 

Does anyone have an updated list?  Also, not sure why I posted a smiley face next to Kent Hull from years ago. Must have been before emojis were a thing.

We lost another one this week and it was one of my personal favorites, Vaughan Johnson of the Saints:

 

Vaughan Johnson, former Saints Pro Bowl linebacker, dies at 57

Vaughan Johnson, a member of the New Orleans Saints' legendary "Dome Patrol" linebacking corps, died Thursday night at age 57 in North Carolina, according to Saints Hall of Fame general manager Ken Trahan.

 

The four-time Pro Bowler had been battling kidney disease for several years and lung failure most recently, according to Trahan's report for CrescentCitySports.com.

 

"The thoughts and prayers of the organization are with Vaughan Johnson's family after his passing," said the Saints via statement released Friday. "Not only was Vaughan a force on the field in the middle of the 'Dome Patrol' defense, but he was a gentle giant off of it. An underrated defender in the middle of a dominant defense, he quickly became a fan favorite and the respect he garnered league-wide among his peers is evidenced by his four consecutive Pro Bowl selections."

 

Johnson began his career with the USFL's Jacksonville Bulls in 1984-85 before spending eight seasons with the Saints and one with the Philadelphia Eagles. Known as a punishing hitter, the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder finished his career with 669 tackles, 12 sacks and 11 forced fumbles.

 

Denver Broncos coach Vic Fangio, who was Johnson's position coach in New Orleans, told ESPN's Chris Mortensen: "He was a great teammate, loved by everyone. He was a ferocious hitter and great all around ILB. And feared by the RBs in the league when he played. Ask Roger Craig."

 

Johnson is the second member of the Dome Patrol to die at an early age, following Sam Mills, who died of intestinal cancer 45 in 2005.

 

Pro Football Hall of Famer Rickey Jackson and Pat Swilling were the other two members of the fierce foursome, which produced a combined 18 Pro Bowl selections among them. They made history in 1992 by all being selected to the Pro Bowl together.

 

"He was one of the best players and best people I ever played with," Jackson told Crescent City Sports. "He was never fighting with anyone, the most generous guy I ever knew. He loved everybody. He was the greatest teammate I ever had. He would hit so hard. He was a great player and a great man. I am truly going to miss him. He was my brother. He was more than a teammate. He was my great friend for life."
