NFL News: Former Giants Great Andy Robustelli Dead

Hall of famer and former Ram and NY Giants defensive end Andy Robustelli has passed away at the age of 85. Details are unclear but his death has been confirmed. Robustelli joined the NFL in 1951 and played for the Rams for four seasons before being traded to the Giants where he helped New York win the 1956 NFL Championship.

He was the anchor of one of the greatest defenses in football history: "Andy was a great leader. When he came to us from the Rams, it turned everything around defensively," fellow Hall of Famer Frank Gifford said. "He fit perfectly into Tom Landry's defense. Tom Landry was such a leader in putting defense into pro football and Andy was one of the key components of that."

Rest in peace....
