NFL: Arizona Cardinals Offensive Linemen Passes Away

Written by TrevStone

Death is never a fun thing to hear about and if you are a fan of the Arizona Cardinals this death might hit you a little harder.

Former NFL offensive lineman Conrad Dobler has died. He was 72.

Dobler spent six years with the Cardinals, two with the Saints, and two with the Bills.

He entered the league as a fifth-round draft pick in 1972, selected by the then-St. Louis Cardinals. He was a second-team All-Pro in 1976, and a three-time Pro Bowler, qualifying for the game in 1975, 1976, and 1977.

Dobler played in 129 regular-season games, with 125 starts.

Sports Illustrated put Dobler on the cover of one of it’s issues with this headline: Pro Football’s Dirtiest Player. In the article, Dobler admitted to dirty play, but he offered a justification.

“I’ll do anything I can get away with to protect my quarterback,” Dobler said.
