Former Carolina Panthers and 2016 Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee Kevin Greene has died at age 58.
His 15-season NFL career was highlighted by 160 sacks, which stands as the third-highest total in NFL history. Three of those years were spent in Carolina where he led the league in sacks in 1996.
Truly one of the greats.
“The entire Pro Football Hall of Fame family mourns the passing of Kevin Greene,” Pro Football HOF President and CEO David Baker said. “I regarded him as a personal friend and a true Hall of Famer in every sense. He possessed the most incredible can-do attitude of anyone I ever met.”“He was a great player, but more than that, he was a great man. Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin’s wife, Tara, and their entire family. We will forever keep his legacy alive to serve as inspiration for future generations. The Hall of Fame flag will be flown at half-staff in Kevin’s memory.”No cause of death was given.
