A legend has passed.
Deacon Jones was part of the L.A. Rams Fearsome Foursome from 1961 to 1971, and will go down as one of the greatest football players in the history of the game. He passed in his own home in southern California at the age of 74.
He was so good, he's the reason why the word "sack" is even in the sport! Plus, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980 — an honor for an outstanding player.
To us, 74 is still too young to pass away (he died of natural causes). We're sorry for his friends' and family's loss.

So, would you be surprised to hear that Joe Namath actually went to the premiere of Namath at the HBO theater in NYC??
But we're still super glad to see him out there, and that he's giving it his support. He's a legend in the sport, and football and his name are pretty much inseparable at this point!
The HBO documentary must have been a trip for the sports star to watch, because we're willing to bet that watching yourself in anything is super weird.
We wonder if he liked it!
