Former Pittsburgh Steelers legend Kevin Greene has died at the age of 58. Greene only spent three seasons with the Steelers but it was arguably one of his best stretches of his 15-year Hall of Fame career.

Steelers President Art Rooney II released the following statement about the death of Greene.

We lost an amazing player and person this morning with the passing of Kevin Greene. His sudden death is a shock to us all as he was a close friend and teammate to so many people in the Steelers family.

When Kevin came to the Steelers in 1993 he had an immediate impact. Paired with Greg Lloyd, Kevin and Greg led a defense that became known as Blitzburgh and went on to play in Super Bowl XXX. Kevin’s energy and enthusiasm were inspiring for our team as well as our fans.

My condolences go out to Kevin’s wife, Tara, their children and the entire Greene family in this most difficult time. They will always be members of the Steelers family and in our thoughts and prayers.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Greene and his family during this time.
