Former NFL lineman and New Jersey native Tony Siragusa unexpectedly passed away at the age of 55 today (June 22).

Siragusa was originally undrafted out of the University of Pittsburgh. He then went on to have a 12-year NFL career with the Colts and Ravens.

Siragusa, also known as “Goose,” will always be a key member of the first-ever Ravens’ Super Bowl championship team back in 2000.

“Goose was one of the most humble and funniest guys I knew. I can remember his locker being next to mine on gameday. He was never bothered and enjoyed life. While I had butterflies in my stomach, he was cracking jokes and pumping me up at the same time. Glad we got a chance to be together one last time for the Super Bowl XXXV celebration. He will be truly missed,” Jamal Lewis (former Baltimore Raven) shared in a press release.

Siragusa is survived by his wife of 27 years Kathy Siragusa, two daughters, Samantha and Ava, and their son, Anthony Jr.

It has been reported by the Pro Football Network that he died in his sleep.
