Former Steeler great L.C. Greenwood has died at age 67

Shutdown Corner

L.C. Greenwood, part of the Pittsburgh Steelers' legendary "Steel Curtain" of the 1970s, has died. Greenwood was 67.

During his 12-year career, the Steelers won four Super Bowls, establishing themselves as one of the preeminent dynasties in NFL history. Greenwood, a defensive end, was a six-time Pro Bowl selection and a member of the NFL's All-Decade Team for the 1970s. He's also a member of the Steelers' All-Time Team, and his four sacks of Roger Staubach in Super Bowl X were good enough to get him named to the Super Bowl Silver Anniversary Team in 1991.

Greenwood is not a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, though he reached finalist status in 2005 and 2006.
