The NFL world mourns the loss of Tony Siragusa, a former defensive tackle that played with the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens. 

On Wednesday, it was reported that legendary defensive tackle Tony Siragusa passed away at the age of 55.

At the time of writing, a cause of death has not been released. Siragusa was affectionately known as “Goose” and played 12 seasons in the NFL.

Siragusa got his start in the league with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent in 1990.

He was able to make the team and eventually emerge as a dominant defensive tackle in the NFL, playing a long and productive career. 

Colts team owner, Jim Irsay, took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Siragusa, saying, “I’m heartbroken as is all of Colts Nation.”

He remained with the Colts for seven seasons and racked up 16.5 sacks, and 405 tackles.

In 1997, Siragusa decided to move on to the Baltimore Ravens where he became an integral part of their dominant defense.
