Default Raiders great Jack Tatum dies at 61

Notorious Raiders defensive back Jack Tatum, whose hit on Darryl Stingley during a preseason game in 1978 left Stingley a paraplegic, has died at the age of 61.

According to 10TV.com, Tatum suffered a heart attack.

Tatum suffered from diabetes for years.* He lost all five toes on his left foot, and his right leg ultimately was amputated.

The hard-nosed safety's autobiography was titled They Call Me Assassin.* For the youngsters in the crowd, YouTube will get you up to speed regarding Tatum's substance and style.* (And please wait to see Tatum's hit on Earl Campbell.)

A member of the College Football Hall of Fame, Ohio State awards during the season a "Jack Tatum Hit of the Week" award.

Loved by Raiders fans and despised by those who followed every other team, Tatum was a key part of the fabric of the game in the 1970s.* There hasn't been another Jack Tatum, and there likely never will.

I am sure our Raider friend on here is sad. I didn't realize he had all that happen to him; the amputations and all that. Sad.

His Rookie and only season with the Oilers he had 7 INTs, he had a INT in all 10 seasons he played. Not only a hard hitter but also a good all around football player

It would be interesting to find out what Daryl Stingley's reaction might be, if he were still alive.

Quote:
According to Stingley in his 1983 autobiography, "Happy To Be Alive," Tatum never made any effort to apologize or to see him after the incident. [1]. The two did not speak from that day until Stingley's death on April 5, 2007.[15] Tatum has never apologized for the hit.[16] "It could have happened to anybody," said Tatum. "People are always saying, 'He didn't apologize.' I don't think I did anything wrong that I need to apologize for. It was a clean hit."
link.

Of course if you believe everything you read on the internet, he only tried to contact Stingley to promote one of his books. I'm sure Stingley wouldn't be too broken up about it if he wasn't dead.
