(FOX NEWS) – Hall of Fame linebacker Nick Buoniconti, a member of the Miami Dolphins during that team’s undefeated 1972 season, died, a spokesman for his family said Wednesday.
He was 78.
Buoniconti spent 15 years in the NFL playing with the Dolphins and the Boston Patriots between 1962 and 1976. He won two Super Bowls, was named to the Pro Bowl eight times and was an All-Pro selection five times.
After he retired, Buoniconti and his son Marc raised more than a half-billion dollars in the search for a cure for paralysis. Marc was paralyzed from the shoulders down making a tackle in 1985 playing for The Citadel.
