RIP Jack Tatum

We are sorry to report that Jack "The Assassin" Tatum has passed away.  One of the game's most feared defenders, Tatum spent nine years in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders and one year with the Houston Oilers.  The three time Pro Bowler played college football at Ohio State and was drafted by the Raiders in the first round of the 1971 draft.

Tatum will forever be known for his intensity and ferocious hits.  He was also involved in what might be the NFL's most legendary play, "The Immaculate Reception."  Tatum was the one who hit French Fuqua, causing the ball to pop into the air before landing in the hands of Franco Harris.
