RIP - Mike Curtis

Mike Curtis, the Baltimore Colts' middle linebacker from 1965 to 1975, passed away on April 20, 2020 at age 77.

Curtis was the Colts' #1 pick in the 1965 draft. He made the Pro Bowl 5 times between 1968 and 1974.

Mike played in Super Bowls III and V. His late-game interception set up the Colts' last-second winning field goal in Super Bowl V.

In 1971 he famously decked a fan for running out on the field during a game.

Curtis later played for Seattle and Washington from 1976-78.

I was saddened to hear of his passing and it is a shame that he was overlooked for the Hall of Fame.
