FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -Former New England Patriots punter Mike Patrick has died. He was 55.
Patrick died Sunday in his hometown of Biloxi, Miss., the team said. No cause was given.
Patrick spent his four-season professional career with the Patriots from 1975-78. Patrick ranks fifth on the Patriots' all-time punters list with 8,481 yards on 225 attempts in 43 career games.
He was signed as a rookie free agent in 1975. In his first NFL game that season, he had a 62-yard punt against Houston, the Patriots' longest since 1968.
Patrick also held several season punting records at Mississippi State from 1972-74. He ranks fifth on the school's career punting list with 6,999 yards in 171 attempts for a 40.9 yard average.
A funeral service is Wednesday in Biloxi.
