Former NFL defensive tackle Tony Siragusa died on Wednesday, a Baltimore Ravens spokesperson told The Baltimore Sun. He was 55.

"Goose," as his fans would call him, played for the Indianapolis Colts for seven seasons from 1990 to 1996 

He was a member of Baltimore's Super Bowl XXXV team, and retired following the 2001 season 

"I'm heart broken as is all of Colts Nation," Colts owner Jim Irsay tweeted.

The 6-foot-3, 330-plus pound defender went undrafted out of Pittsburgh in 1990 

In 169 career games, Siragusa racked up 564 combined tackles and 22 sacks.  

Always a colorful character, he joined Fox as a sideline reporter after retirement, working for the company for almost a decade. 

Siragusa wasn't your typical sideline reporter, however, as he provided commentary from his post on the field as well.

He also dipped his toe in the acting world, even appearing in "The Sopranos."  

"He was the leader, he was our captain," former Ravens teammate Brad Jackson said, via Aaron Wilson of the Pro Football Network.
