  • Tony Siragusa was the anchor on an historic Super Bowl-winning defense with the Baltimore Ravens.
  • Siragusa then went on to work for FOX as a sideline reporter and commentator.
  • Siragusa tragically passed on Wednesday at the age of 55 years old.

The NFL lost a massive personality on Wednesday with the passing of former Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens nose tackle Tony Siragusa.

Siragusa played 11 seasons in the NFL and won a Super Bowl with the Ravens in 2001, retiring following that season.

The man the called “Goose” then transitioned to a career in broadcasting. He worked for FOX as a sideline reporter and commentator until 2015. Siragusa continued his television career with a role as Frank Cortese in HBO’s “The Sopranos” and then hosted the show “Man Caves” on DIY Network.

Both the Ravens and Colts released statements on his passing.

The teams were far from the only ones to chime in. The beloved NFL and broadcasting veteran had teammates and competitors alike who wanted to share their condolences.

Siragusa’s influence, in large part because of his larger than life personality, went beyond the playing field.

Siragusa’s impact will clearly be felt long after he passes.
