AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Jim Hudson, the former New York Jets safety who helped the team to its only Super Bowl title in 1969, has died. He was 70.
The team confirmed on its official site that Hudson died Tuesday in Austin. The cause of death was not disclosed.
Hudson was a starting safety against the Baltimore Colts, making a key play in the first half of the Super Bowl victory. The Colts were trailing 7-0 when they tried a flea-flicker from Earl Morrall to Tom Matte and back to Morrall, who looked for Jerry Hill near the Jets 10. Hudson stepped in front of the toss, ruining a potential scoring drive.
The former University of Texas player had six tackles in the 16-7 win, and finished with 15 career interceptions in six seasons with the Jets.
