Tony Siragusa (ex-NFL DT), 'the Goose', dies at 55

Tony Siragusa was an NFL defensive tackle and one of the most prominent personalities in the game. He died Wednesday at 55.

It was not immediately possible to determine the cause of Siragusa’s death.

Siragusa, affectionately called "Goose", was a key cog in the middle the Baltimore Ravens historic 2000 defense 

This defense led to the team's first Super Bowl title that season. As an undrafted agent, 

Siragusa drank away his $1,000 signing bonus and was subsequently resigned as one of the unique personalities of the game 

He was well-known for his humorous sense of humor and hilarious pranks 

Former Ravens coach Brian Billick stated that there was no one like Goose. 

He was a warrior on and off the field, and a team unifier who gave back to the community 

Without him, we wouldn't have won the Super Bowl. This is a shocking, 

Our hearts go out Kathy and the Siragusa families.
