Tony Siragusa, Super Bowl champion with Ravens and former sideline analyst, dies at 55

Tony Siragusa, a key member of the Ravens first Super Bowl championship team, passed away Wednesday at age 55.

Owner Steve Bisciotti and his wife, Renee, issued a statement regarding Siragusa's passing.

The news of Siragusa's death came on a tragic day, as Ravens outside linebacker Jaylon Ferguson passed away Tuesday night at just 26 years old.

Siragusa was part of Baltimore's legendary defense in 2000 that led the team to a title, allowing the fewest points in NFL history for a 16-game season.

On the football field, Goose was a difference-maker who contributed immeasurably to the success of many great Ravens defenses, including the record-setting 2000 Super Bowl team.

Undrafted out of the University of Pittsburgh, Siragusa had a 12-year NFL career with the Colts (1990-96) and Ravens (1997-2001), with 564 career tackles and 22 sacks

Coaches and teammates are mourning while remembering Siragusa fondly.
