R.I.P. John Mackey

John Mackey died yesterday at age 69. The Hall Of Fame Tight End defined the modern day position, though he was so versatile and powerful that he was frequently deployed in other capacities (like kick-off returner!) In ability and persona, he represents the best qualities of a bygone era in the NFL. He will be missed.

A signed mini-helment...


A nice obituary...
