Tony Siragusa, a member of the Baltimore Ravens' Super Bowl-winning defense who carved out a post-retirement media career, died Wednesday. He was 55 years old.

Siragusa, nicknamed "Goose," played 12 NFL seasons. Siragusa became a fan favorite in Baltimore, and formed a 700-pound wall up front alongside Sam Adams to help the Ravens capture their first title at Super Bowl XXXV in 2001. Siragusa retired after the next season due to knee issues, finishing his career with 564 career total tackles, 22 sacks and nine fumble recoveries in 169 games. He also received a spot on the NFL's list of the league's 100 greatest characters.

From 2003-2015, Siragusa worked as an NFL sideline reporter and analyst for Fox Sports, usually working with Kenny Albert and Daryl Johnston. He is survived by his wife Kathy and three children. His death was the second tragedy to hit the Ravens Wednesday, as linebacker Jaylon Ferguson was announced to have died.
