Former New England Patriots offensive lineman and College Football Hall of Famer Shelby Jordan died Sept. 9 at the age of 70, the team announced Friday.

Jordan spent seven seasons with the Patriots starting in 1975 and then four with the Los Angeles Raiders before retiring after the 1986 season.

A seventh-round pick out of Washington University in St. Louis, Jordan played in 95 games for the Patriots with 87 starts at right tackle. He later helped the Raiders win Super Bowl XVIII after the 1983 season.
