RIP L. C. Greenwood

Speaking as a lifelong Steeler fan, you will be missed sir! RIP

Like several of his former Steelers teammates, L.C. Greenwood stepped from small-college obscurity into greatness on the big stage.

A defensive end, he was a 10th-round draft  pick out of Arkansas AM&N, now Arkansas-Pine Bluff, in 1969. The  Dallas Cowboys reportedly passed on drafting him because of an earlier  knee injury. By the time Greenwood retired after the 1981 season, he had  etched himself in lore as a member of the vaunted Steel Curtain  defense, helping forge a dynasty in which the Steelers won four Super  Bowls during six seasons in the 1970s.
Shortly before noon Sunday, Greenwood died  of kidney failure, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's  Office. He was 67.
