Raider Legend Jack Tatum Dies

CSNSportsBayArea is reporting that former Raider legen Jack Tatum died of a heart attack today in Oakland. Tatus was 61 years old.

Nicknamed "The Assassin," Tatum died of a heart attack Tuesday in Oakland, according to friend and former Ohio State teammate John Hicks.

In his nine-year NFL career, Tatum was named to the Pro Bowl three times and was a member of the 1977 Super Bowl champions. He was regarded as one of the most-feared hitters in the NFL.

He was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1981 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 2004.

Tatum is perhaps most remembered for his hit on New England Patriots wide receiver Darryl Stingley in a game at the Oakland Coliseum that left Stingley paralyzed.
On Aug. 12, 1978, Stingley, playing for the New England Patriots, ran head-on into the hard-hitting Tatum on a crossing pattern. The blow severed Stingley's fourth and fifth veterbrae and left the receiver paralyzed.

Tatum said he tried to visit Stingley at an Oakland hospital shortly after the collision but was turned away by Stingley's family members.

Stingley died in 2007.

"We have lost one of our greatest Buckeyes," Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said in a statement that was issued Tuesday. "When you think of Ohio State defense, the first name that comes to mind is Jack Tatum. His loss touches every era of Ohio State players and fans."

I wrote this piece on Tatum and Darryl Stingley a couple of years ago.

Tatus was a true competitor and will be missed.
