Former Patriots WR David Patten dies aged 47


Recommended Posts

That's the second former NFL player from small time Western Carolina university that died this year. The other was Tony Jones, who was 54 when he passed in January, so he wasn't that much older than Patten. Both were undrafted out of Western Carolina, but beat the odds, and had long productive careers. Jones, like Patten also won multiple Super Bowls as a Denver Bronco. Sad vibes all around.
