Philadelphia Eagles lose a legend; Chuck Bednarik dies at the age of 89

bednarikThe Philadelphia Eagles announced Chuck Bednarik‘s death in a statement, saying that the former center-linebacker died early Saturday morning at an assisted living facility in Richland, Pennsylvania following a brief illness.

“With the passing of Chuck Bednarik, the Eagles and our fans have lost a legend,” Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said in the statement. “Philadelphia fans grow up expecting toughness, all-out effort and a workmanlike attitude from this team and so much of that image has its roots in the way Chuck played the game. He was a Hall of Famer, a champion and an all-time Eagle. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones during this time.”
