At age 55, Tony Siragusa, a defensive lineman who rose to prominence as one of the sport's biggest stars and personalities, passed away on Wednesday.

Besides, Siragusa spent a total of 12 seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens.

After his football career, from 2003 to 2015, he served as a sideline analyst for NFL games broadcast on the Fox Network. He worked as the host of the DIY Network's Man Caves, a program about home remodeling.

Siragusa spent the first seven years of his career with the Indianapolis Colts before signing with the Ravens as a free agent in 1997.

As a blue-collar run-stuffer, Siragusa took solace in the fact that his greatest moment was a quarterback hit.

We must concede that after his NFL career, there were fewer articles written about him and fewer paparazzi followed him, therefore very little was known about him.

Furthermore, Siragusa covered NFL games for the Fox Network as a sideline reporter and commentator up until his firing during the 2015 NFL season. Daryl Johnston and Siragusa regularly shared the stage before Kenny Albert, Dick Stockton, and Curt Menefee.
