BREAKING: Former Los Angeles Rams' defensive end Deacon Jones has passed away at the age of 74. The "Secretary of Defense" was a two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1980.
The inventor of the sack :(

RIP Deacon. The Fearsome Foursome was one of the best Defensive Lines ever.
Head slap ftw
this sucks.
"One bad actor" as they used to say in the 60's.
Sad day, in his era he was unstoppable. The NFL outlawed the headslap because of him. Deacon Jones, Merlin Olsen, Roger Brown and Lamar Lundy, awesome.
BEAST

RIP

Oh s**t, didn't know till just now. I'll miss his commentary on the "Top Ten" show on NFL network, he was always one of my favorite commentators on there. RIP Secretary of Defense.

RIP

DEACON JONES
