INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Former Indianapolis Colts defensive tackle and Fox Sports analyst Tony Siragusa has died. He was 55.
Jim Irsay announced the death in a tweet Wednesday afternoon. Irsay said he is heartbroken at the death of Colts fan favorite, “The Goose.”
Siragusa played seven season with the Indianapolis Colts from 1990 to 1996, then with the Baltimore Ravens from 1997 to 2001 before retiring.
Siragusa was popular with fans because of his fun-loving personality, which also helped him transition quickly to broadcasting after his playing career. Reporting typically from the end zone, Siragusa’s appearances for FOX on Sundays became a living room staple for football fans across the country.
