Tony Siragusa, a longtime NFL player and fan favorite, has died at age 55.

The massive 6-foot-4, 360-pound defensive tackle and New Jersey native was a beloved member of a Baltimore Ravens team that beat the New York Giants in Super Bowl XXXV at the end of the 2000 NFL season. Siragusa went on to act in several episodes of HBO‘s Sopranos and became a sideline reporter for Fox’s NFL broadcasts.

Details surrounding Siragusa’s death have not been revealed, but multiple reports state he died in his sleep on Monday. He was vaccinated in 2021.

‘He was the leader, he was our captain,’ Siragusa’s former Ravens teammate Brad Jackson told NFL reporter Aaron Wilson. ‘He meant everything to everyone. It’s a sad day. I just talked to him on Sunday. It’s terrible.’

Siragusa’s death marked an already tragic day for the Ravens, who lost 26-year-old linebacker Jaylon Ferguson on Tuesday. Baltimore police have yet to reveal a cause, but said Wednesday they found him at a local residence at 11:26pm on Tuesday while responding to a report of a ‘questionable death.’

Police are not ruling out the possibility of an overdose death in Ferguson’s case.

As for Siragusa, the gregarious former University of Pittsburgh star told Howard Stern in 2012 that heart disease runs in his family, adding that his father died of a heart attack at 48.

‘If I die tomorrow, I told my wife, just put a smile on my face,’ Siragusa told Stern. ‘Put a little [Frank] Sinatra on.’

Siragusa’s former teammate Jamal Lewis told TMZ that it is ‘a sad day to be a Raven.’

Undrafted out of college, Siragusa caught on with the Indianapolis Colts in 1990 and quickly gained a reputation for eating up blockers to allow other defenders to attack ball carriers.

The man known as ‘Goose’ later signed with the Ravens in 1997, joining what would become one of the most feared defenses in NFL history.

Siragusa is survived by his wife Kathy and three children, Samantha, Ava, and Anthony Jr.
