EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Former New York Giants punter and radio analyst Dave Jennings has died. He was 61.
The Giants announced that Jennings died at his home in Upper Saddle River on Wednesday morning.
The most prolific punter in franchise history, Jennings had battled Parkinson's disease, a chronic degenerative neurological disorder, since 1996.
Jennings played for the Giants from 1974-84. He holds the franchise records for punts (931, or 405 more than second-place Sean Landeta) and yards (38,792). Jennings was selected to play in the Pro Bowl in 1978, `79, `80 and `82. He punted a career-high 104 times in 1979, which was the Giants record until Brad Maynard had 111 punts in 1997.
