Former New England Patriot Player Mosi Totupu dies at 54

I just saw this article on regarding Mosi Tatupu. Former New England Patriot player Mosi Tatupi died at the age of 54 According to per the Honolulu Star Bulletin "the cause of death is currently not known." also reports that Tatupu "reportedly had been suffering from high blood pressure and other health issues."

I have been a fan of the New England Patriots since 1975. I was a huge fan of Mosi, and today is a very sad day. Mosi was not just a running back he was a true football player. He did run the ball, but he was a great blocker. He was also a special teams player. He is the type of player that gave you everything he had. He even had his own fan club called "Mosi's Mooses." When I think of players from the 80's Mosi's name comes up near the top.

Mosi after his playing days still lived Massachusetts. He was the running backs coach for Curry College. His son Lofa Tatupu currently plays for the Seattle Seahawks. My heart goes out to him and the rest of the Tatupu family.
