Former Baltimore Colts star Ordell Braase died at age 87 on Monday.

The former NFL defensive end had been battling Alzheimer’s disease in recent years.

Braase, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, was part of three NFL championship teams in his 12 seasons with Baltimore and was highly regarded despite being overshadowed by future Hall of Fame defensive end Gino Marchetti for much of his career. He also joined former teammate and Hall of Famer Art Donovan on the long-running radio and television show, “Braase, Donovan and Fans”

His death was first reported by The Sun.
