NFL legend Tony Siragusa has died at 55 years old, his former Baltimore Ravens teammate, Jamal Lewis, confirmed to TMZ Sports.

“It’s a sad day to be a Raven I must say,” the ex-running back said on Wednesday.

A cause of death for the former defensive lineman has not yet been revealed.

A former defensive tackle, Siragusa played twelve seasons in the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens. He won a Super Bowl with Baltimore as a key part of one of the best defenses in NFL history.
