Former Steelers defensive end Gabe Rivera died in San Antonio on Monday at the age of 57.

Rivera’s wife Nancy confirmed her husband’s death to KENS after earlier saying he was in critical condition since being taken to the hospital with a perforated bowel last Friday.

Rivera was a star at Texas Tech before Pittsburgh made him the 21st overall pick of the 1983 draft. Rivera’s playing career would end after just six games Kyler Fackrell Jersey , however.

Rivera, who was elected to the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012, was in a car accident while driving under the influence of alcohol in October 1983 and suffered a spinal cord injury when he was thrown from the car. That injury ended his playing days and left him paralyzed for the remainder of his life.

Our condolences go out to Rivera’s family and friends on their loss.

Pro Football Hall of Famer Rod Woodson says the real reason that Hall of Famers give speeches when they’re inducted is to thank the people who helped them reach that point — something Terrell Owens doesn’t seem to grasp.

Woodson said on NFL Network that the most important part of his own Hall of Fame speech was acknowledging the people who had supported him along the way. Woodson thinks Owens owes it to those people — family members, teachers Mikael Granlund Jersey , high school coaches — to show up in Canton. Instead, Owens will skip the Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony.

“I really don’t care if he comes or not,” Woodson said. “But what bothers me more than anything is that in T.O.’s life, he’s had different things that happened to him in his life Adrian Amos Jersey , but there’s people who helped him come along through his childhood, high school, college, to get to the point where he’s at to be one of the better players to ever play in the National Football League . . . you can be there to acknowledge them. And they lose out Sherrick McManis Jersey , because he’s thinking, It’s all about T.O. For all those people who helped him, for him not to acknowledge them to the public, it’s a shame.”

Owens is the first Hall of Famer ever to decline to attend the enshrinement ceremony.
