04:44 PM ET 05.12 | Former Pittsburgh Steelers great Jack Butler passed away over the weekend, succumbing to a lingering staph infection in his knee at the age of 85. Butler played nine seasons for the Steelers in the 1950s before a knee injury cut his career short, but made the most of his playing days, bringing in 52 interceptions, which was the second-most in the NFL at that time. He was named to the NFL's All-50s team, and was inducted into the Hall of Fame this past year.

A bit sad that FN can't even post a pic. Fixed.
