Rams legend Kevin Greene dies at 58
The Legend of Los Angeles Rams and Pro Football Hall of famer Kevin Greene died Monday at the age of 58. Considered one of the best pass rushers in NFL history, Greene has made his mark on the field as a fearsome edge defender for 15 years. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016 and is third all-time with 160 career bags.
Greene began his career with the Rams after being selected for the fifth round in the 1985 NFL draft. After working as a backup for three years, he broke through as a starter in 1988. That year he recorded 16.5 sacks in 16 games, forced two fiddles and collected a total of 51 tackles.
He spent eight years with the Rams, played 119 games, picked up 72.5 sacks and forced 13 fiddles. Although he never won a Super Bowl, he has played in seven playoff games with the Rams and a total of 17 in his career.
"The entire family of the Pro Football Hall of Fame mourns Kevin Greene," said David Baker, President and CEO of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, in a statement released Monday. “I considered him to be a personal friend and hall of famer in every way. He had the most incredible can-do attitude I have ever met. He was a great player, but on top of that, he was a great man. Our thoughts and prayers go with Kevin's wife Tara and her entire family. We will keep his legacy alive forever to serve as inspiration for future generations. The Hall of Fame flag is hoisted on half of the staff in Kevin's memory. "
Greene retired from the Steelers, Panthers, and 49ers. In addition to his 160 sacks, he recorded a total of 734 tackles and forced 23 fumbling. He led the league twice in these sacks (1994 and 1996) and was named Player of the Month once (November 1994). Greene was selected to five Pro Bowls with two All-Pro First Team Honors.
The cause of his death was not disclosed.
