I'm saddened and shocked at the same time.

R.I.P. Dwight, thanks for the memories.

I heard it was a staph infection brought on after he had the back surgery, which was a few days ago.  It was originally reported that the surgery was successful, apparently it was not.  

Eitherway, very sad and God Bless the White family.  They will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Code:
Former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end Dwight White, part of the Steel Curtain defense that led the team to four Super Bowl championships in the 1970s, has died following surgery at a Pittsburgh hospital. He was 58.

The team announced White's death today.

White died of complications following back surgery, according to Steelers radio voice Bill Hillgrove.

Haven't three members (perhaps more?) from those teams died within the last 10 years?

Very sad.

Two have died in the last five months alone.  Holmes and White.  

Over the last ten years, players associated with the 70's teams that I know of who have also passed include Courson, Webster and Little.  I might be missing one or two.

Mike Webster, of course.

I think Long didn't come on the scene until 82 or 83.  Courson was the one I had in mind, but wasn't sure.
