    I saw this on the ticker yesterday. Wasn't sure what to think as I never saw him play.

    RIP Mad Dog

    I remember watching the Steelers in the 70's, one of the most devastating D's of all time. He was a tough guy, RIP Dwight White.

    White’s death follows a trend in which former Steelers players have died at an uncommon rate. At least 38 former Steelers players have died since 2000, with 17 of them 59 or younger, as was White.
    This is pretty amazing!
