Siragusa — a 6-foot-3, 340-pound defensive tackle — initially broke into the NFL with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent in 1990 and became a full-time starter by the 1992 season.
In 1997, he signed with the Baltimore Ravens … and went on to be a key cog on the legendary 2000 team that won Super Bowl XXXV.

Playing alongside Ray Lewis, Rod Woodson and Adalius Thomas, Siragusa — nicknamed “Goose” — helped the Ravens defense set the record for fewest points allowed in a regular season on their way to winning a title.


In his 12 years in the league, he compiled 22 sacks and 564 combined tackles.

Following his playing career, Siragusa gained national fame for his role as an NFL sideline reporter and analyst for Fox. He made audiences laugh with his unique style and knowledge of the game.

This is such a sad story, and our hearts and prayers are with Mr. Siragusa’s family.


We hope that they get answers and find peace as they go through this painful journey.
