RIP: Charlie Sanders

RIP: Charlie Sanders
05 Jul
Not in Hall of Fame
It was announced yesterday that Pro Football Hall of Fame Tight End, Charlie Sanders died yesterday at the age of 68. 

Sanders was a very popular figure with the Detroit Lions and would spend his entire playing career there.  The Tight End was initially drafted in the third round in 1968 and would go on to make seven Pro Bowls and was also chosen for the 1970’s All-Decade Team.  He would record nearly 5,000 receiving yards, an excellent amount for a Tight End in that era.

Sanders would go on to become a successful broadcaster for Detroit Lions broadcasts and later was an Assistant Coach.  Overall, Charlie Sanders would spend over four decades affiliated in some capacity with the Detroit Lions.

We here at would like to extend our condolences to the friends and family of Charlie Sanders at this time.
