Tony Siragusa rose to national prominence, following his NFL career, for his work as a Fox NFL sideline reporter and analyst. His distinctive approach and in-depth understanding of the sport attracted spectators. Sadly, Tony passed away at the age of 55.
Former Baltimore Ravens teammate Jamal Lewis informed TMZ Sports that the NFL icon has passed away at the age of 55. The former running back stated on Wednesday, “It’s a sad day to be a Raven I must say.” The former defensive lineman’s cause of death is still unclear.
The 6-foot-3, 340-pound defensive tackle Siragusa made his NFL debut with the Indianapolis Colts in 1990 as an undrafted free agent. By the 1992 season, he had established himself as a regular starter.
Siragusa assisted the Ravens defense set the record for the fewest points allowed in a regular season as they worked their way to a championship while playing alongside Ray Lewis, Rod Woodson, and Adalius Thomas. He recorded 22 sacks and 564 total tackles over his 12-year career in the NFL.
After leaving the NFL, Siragusa presented a number of TV programs, including “Man Caves.” Stay tuned to Thirsty for further updates.
