Pro Football Hall of Famer Frank Gifford dies at 84

NEW YORK (AP) — Pro Football Hall of Famer Frank Gifford has died. He was 84.

In a statement released by NBC News on Sunday, his family said Gifford died suddenly at his Connecticut home of natural causes that morning. His wife, Kathie Lee Gifford, is a host for NBC’s “Today.”

A versatile star on both offense and defense in an era when NFL players were starting to specialize, Gifford went on to a successful second career as a broadcaster on “Monday Night Football.”

Gifford was the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1956 when he led the New York Giants to a league championship.

Coolest guy in the room. Legendary on and off the field, and one of the best ever in the broadcast booth.
