Essex County

Death: Nov. 19, 2007

Hall of Fame Professional Football Player. He played college football at Syracuse University and was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 7th round of the 1953 NFL draft. Although he was considered undersized for an offensive lineman, he became one of the most dominant centers of his era playing the position for eleven years as a member of the Packers. Vince Lombardi traded him to the Philadelphia Eagles after the 1963 season allegedly because he hired an agent to negotiate his new contract. He remained with the Eagles from 1964 until his final season in 1967. After retiring as an active player he became a coach and was the head coach of the Buffalo Bills during the 1976 and 1977 seasons. In his 15 year career, he played in 10 Pro Bowls, was voted an All-NFL player 7 times and played in 3 NFL Championship games. He started a then-record 182 consecutive games from 1954 to 1967 and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1981. (bio by: Decal)
