RIP Mosi Tatupu

Sad and shocking news:
Mosi Tatupu, a fullback and special teams ace for the Patriots for 13 season, died at the age of 54.

Tatupu, a native of America Samoa who played 13 seasons for the Patriots, died Tuesday, but the cause of death was not known, according to the Honolulu Star-Bulletin.

Barry Markowitz, a family friend, told the Star-Bulletin, "He had some health issues."


Tatupu played in 202 NFL games, including Super Bowl XX, when the Patriots lost to the Bears 46-10. He had 18 career touchdowns.

He had his own cheering section at Patriots home games, "Mosi's Mooses."
Wow. That's very young, even for a former football player. I was a Mosi fan, but pretty much all Patriots fans were - there was no reason not to be, and he was a guy who seemed to get the most out of his abilities. Very sad story.
