Aw crap, that sucks.

For those that don't know, he was traded to the Chargers partway through the 1980 season and was basically the human battering ram to the Air Coryell offense. He was one of those guys who could've been an all time great one if he didn't have major issues with cocaine throughout his career. IIRC Don Coryell helped him get clean after getting out of prison and he was since.

RIP.

EDIT: Actually, the play I always remember most from him is that halfback option pass he lobbed to Wes Chandler for a TD in the 1982 MNF game between the Bengals and Chargers.
