The NFL community memorialized former Ravens defensive tackle Tony Siragusa on social media following his death. In conjunction with the untimely passing of current Ravens linebacker Jaylon Ferguson, Wednesday was one of the saddest days in franchise history.
Siragusa, affectionately known as “The Goose,” played in the NFL for 12 seasons with the Colts and Ravens, earning a Super Bowl ring with Baltimore in 2000. Following his retirement, Siragusa became a sideline analyst for NFL games as a result of his imposing personality, which made him stand out among football’s giants.
“This is challenging. In a statement, former teammate Ray Lewis said, “I love Goose like a brother.” “From the moment we met, I knew life would be different. I knew he was someone who would forever alter my life. He was a one-of-a-kind individual who made you feel significant and unique. One can never replace such a man. On the field, he was the ultimate competitor who inspired us all to perform at our best.

“We should never put off today what we can accomplish tomorrow.” Please embrace your loved ones for Goose. A few weeks ago, God blessed us with the opportunity to celebrate our 2000 team together. We have lost a great man, but God has gained an even greater angel. May they be blessed, embraced, and comforted by the peace he brought to all who met him.”
